Wildcats tame Eagles

Monday, October 18, 2010

The Pierce City Lady Eagles softball teams magical season came to a conclusion last Saturday as they fell 5-0 to Warsaw.

"It was tough," said Pierce City Head Coach Darin Henderson. "We made a couple mistakes that allowed Warsaw to score and we couldn't recover."

Pierce City could only manage one hit over seven innings.

"I thought we came out a little nervous," said Henderson "We ran into a very good pitcher who had a lot of movement on her pitches."

The Lady Wildcats jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the first off a Haely Kreisel three-run homerun. Warsaw added two more in the sixth off a Kristina Strader single.

Although the Lady Eagles fell they have several positives to take from this season. All 12 player return next year, the experienced gained from this season should help them push even deeper into the playoffs.

"I am very proud of this team." said Henderson. "They never stopped battling in this game. I am fortunate to have the all back next year."

Pierce City finished the season 19-7, Spring River Valley Champions, district and sectional champions.
