The New Franklin Lady Bulldogs softball team scored in every inning but one last night in a 11-1 win over Brunswick in CAC action in New Franklin.
The Lady Bulldogs, improving to 9-2 overall and 4-0 in the CAC, led Brunswick 2-1 after one, 5-1 after three, 9-1 after four and 10-1 after five before adding another run in the sixth.
New Franklin coach Ross Dowell said the girls really had a hard time hitting the ball. “Brunswick’s pitcher was a lot slower than the night before,” Dowell said. “Defensively, we made a lot of good plays behind Megan. No walks and no errors will help you win some games.”
Megan Phillips picked up the win in the circle for New Franklin by striking out eight batters and giving up just one run on three hits.
New Franklin also out-hit Brunswick 9-3, with Abby Prewitt going 2-for-2 with a single, triple and two RBIs.
