The Perry Hall Gators varsity girls softball team lost a home game on Monday, April 25 to the Dulaney Lions with a final score of 3-0.
The Gators trailed the Lions for the entire contest due to one key factor.
“We played well defensively. We just didn’t hit the ball. Faced an outstanding pitcher today and she was on her game and we struggled with the bats,” said Brain Radcliffe, Perry Hall’s varsity girls softball head coach.
Coach Radcliffe further explained the challenge presented by Dulaney.
“She throws a pitch called a rise ball that as it approaches the plate it shoots upwards and we didn’t handle that pitch very well today,” said Radcliffe.
The Gators will focus on one key aspect in practice.
“We can just continue working on hitting drills and just talk philosophy of hitting,” said Radcliffe.
Everything wasn’t bad for Perry Hall during the game.
“Defensively we played very well. Ally Kordon pitched an excellent ball game. I’m not sure how many strikeouts she had, but I know she hit her spot. She did well,” said Radcliffe.
The Gators head coach also noted his team’s effort after the loss.
“The kids played hard the whole game and I’m very proud of them,” said Radcliffe.
The team looks towards to playing Hereford at Hereford Wednesday, April 27.
