BALDWIN CITY — The Wellsville High School softball team’s defense made too many errors in the Eagles’ losses Thursday to Baldwin in Baldwin City.

Wellsville lost 14-11 and 10-0. The opener turned into a slugfest.

“The game went kind of back and forth for awhile but we made way too many mistakes defensively and had way too many errors for us to overcome their bats,” Wellsville coach Chris Rose said. “Baldwin hit the ball extremely well and all of our weaknesses and deficiencies were exploited.  

“We had a couple of our starters out for the game so that didn’t help either because girls were playing in positions that they weren’t as prepared in. In game two, we had to play through some injuries and we still made a lot of defensive errors and our bats didn’t show up at all.  It was just one of those nights that whatever could go wrong went wrong.”

Justine Dougan led Wellsville with four hits and four RBIs. Moriah Kayhill and Ashley Sparks had three hits each.

Wellsville (2-2) plays Tuesday at home against Anderson County.
