The Eldon Mustang softball team played its second game of the season, again on the road, on Tuesday, Aug. 26 at Fulton. The result was even more lop-sided in their favor then the result of their first game was as they downed the Hornets 14-0.
“We had a decent night defensively. We gave up two errors in the first to load the bases with a walk then worked out of it without giving up any runs. Offensively we were able to really get going from the second inning on. I have been pleased in how our defense has reacted so far on the half innings following our scores. We have talked about how important it is to try to work efficiently through defensive innings to not give any momentum back to our opponents after we score. It was a good night offensively everybody was involved in a run through and RBI or scoring themselves,” Eldon head coach Dusty Purnell said.
Sophomore Brooklyn Bledsoe again got the start, pitching all five innings while allowing five hits and issuing three walks.
Senior Treva Hankey had a two doubles, a single and reached on an error with a two-RBI, two runs scored night.
Freshman Mia Laws also had two doubles, drew a walk, drove in two and scored two runs.
So far this season, Eldon hasn’t allowed a run to be scored while putting up 24 runs. The Mustangs also haven’t played a full seven-inning game yet.
The Mustangs will play again on Thursday, Aug. 28 in their home opener against Southern Boone.
