Softball struggling to find win
Fredericksburg -- The Hondo softball team continued to
struggle with Fredericksburg last Friday evening, April 10,
dropping a 10-0 decision in six innings.
The Owls were limited to a single hit in the game, a two-out
single in the fifth by Iris Vosquez, while the Lady Billies
pounded out 13 of their own.
Fredericksburg jumped on top with six runs in the bottom of the
first. The early rally contained five hits, but was spurred on by
three consecutive errors that made all six runs unearned. The Lady
Billies got the walkoff single with one-out in the bottom of the
sixth, to put the ten-run rule into play.
On Tuesday at Martin Field, the Owls were in the thick of the
game against Devine for awhile, but the Arabians pulled away in
the later innings for a 13-7 win.
The loss dropped the Owls to 1-7 in District 29-AAAA. Hondo
will conclude its season this week, with a game at Bandera on
Friday, April 17, and a final home game against Lytle on Tuesday,
April 21. Both contests start at 7 p.m.
Hondo pulled even with Devine early, tying it at 2-2 on a Kacie
Dupont homer. The Owls took a 5-4 lead, but Devine erased that
with six runs to go up 10-5, heading to the bottom of the sixth.
Despite a couple of mini-rallies from the Owls in the final two
innings, the Arabians pulled away for the six-run win.
