Good Hope softball coach Wayne Harris is hoping his girls made enough errors Thursday on the road against Westminster Christian to last them the rest of the season.
The No. 7 Raiders wound up beating the Wildcats 5-3 but made an uncharacteristically high seven errors in the process. That kind of night can slide early on in the year, but Harris knows it won’t be acceptable as Good Hope enters the heart of its 2013 campaign.
“We shared the love. It was all over the field,” the coach said with a laugh. “They’re a good team, but I hope our experience will help us rebound and grow from it.”
In her first outing since a rough start against Huntsville, Cara Goodwin was back at her usual best, striking out 14 and allowing only three hits and two walks in a complete-game effort.
Darcie Wilson poured in two runs with a double in the top of the first inning. Kayla Tillman was responsible for two hits, while Bailie Andrews, Goodwin, Alannah Henke, Josie McDonald and Darby Randolph all had one apiece.
The Raiders will take their 6-1 record into pool play at the Wallace State Tournament at Heritage Park. They’re slated to face Lawrence County and Oneonta today.
Cullman’s middle school boys walloped Brookhaven 7-1 on Thursday night to maintain its spotless record.
Miguel Tizapa, Isaac Rodriguez, Peyton Brown, Cole Gerding and Joey Franklin were Cullman’s scorers.
