MABEN â€“ The East Webster Lady Wolverines showed that putting the softball in play can lead to positive things on Thursday night.
In a meeting between cross-county rivals, East Webster picked up a 12-2 softball victory over Eupora.
â€śWe did a good job putting the ball in play,â€ť Lady Wolverines coach Lee Berryhill said. â€ś(In) just about every inning, we put pressure on their defense. We just did a good job of putting the ball in play. We threw strikes (in the circle) which gave us a chance. (When) you play defense, you put it in play and you throw strikes, you got a chance.â€ť
While things seemed to be going East Websterâ€™s way, the Lady Eagles just seemed to never really get off the ground.
â€śAs far as offense, we werenâ€™t on the ball like we should have been,â€ť Eupora coach Kaley Harris said. â€śWe had runners on base and we didnâ€™t bring them around. Defense-wise, we made errors that hurt us. Pitching-wise, we walked a few we shouldnâ€™t have.â€ť
