Game Recap

After a first game beating, EGR surprisingly came out ready to battle in Game 2, scoring first and winning inning 1. Emma Stafford reached base on a FHE error as the first batter in the game and would set the tone for a 2 run first inning for EGR. Ivy Hackney would eventually hit a single to score her in the first.

EGR went on to play solid defense in the first, holding FHE to just one run. In the top of the second with a team effort of reaching base moving runners into scoring position, Emma Stafford stepped up with a fly ball double over the center fielder to tag on EGR’s final run of the game.

EGR came out strong again defensively in the bottom of the second, holding FHE to just 2 runs with two outs. Unfortunately a sequence of back to back errors to start the downward spiral and numerous hits ended up leading to a disappointing 14 run bottom of the second taking the wind out of EGR’s sails. EGR ended up committing 7 errors on 2 outs in the second inning.

EGR couldn’t mount any comeback in third and was mercied again in three innings. After FHE’s sweep of the Pioneers, EGR moves to 3-2 on the season and 0-2 in conference play.

EGR looks to redeem themselves Friday night at Manhattan vs. Catholic Central at 4:15pm & 6:00pm.
