The South O'Brien girls suffered a 13-2, 6 inning loss to Remsen St. Mary's on
Tuesday, but Wolvrines coach Heather Struve said, "The score does not really tell how well we played."
" We really hit the ball very well for our first game of the year," said the coach, " but we just could not bunch up our hits. We never had more than two hits in an inning."
RSM on the other hand, Struve pointed out, had multiple hits in three innings, and they were also finding the gaps, while SOS seemed to be hitting right at their fielders.
In conclusion, Coach Struve siad, " We did a lot of things right for our first game of the year, especially since we have five or six underclassmen in the game at all times. We had three errors in the game and RSM had none. St. Mary's is a tough ball club."
Of South O'Brien's eight hits as a team, four were doubles. Casie Rehder was 2 for 3 with a double and two runs scored for SOS, while Rachel Struve was also 2 for 3 with a double and an RBI, Taylor Paulson had a double and one RBI, and Alyssa Bainbridge stroked the team's other double.
Emily Riedemann started the game on the mound for South O'Brien, and she went 2 2/3 innings, and took the loss. Riedemann surrendered eight hits, walked three, struck out two, and gave up nine runs, six of them earned.
Taylor Paulsen came on in relief and pitched 3 1/3 innings, giving up four runs (one earned) on three hits, while walking four and hitting one batter.
