Junior second baseman Jordyn Pieper keyed the Panthers’ bats with three hits (all singles). Pieper also led in runs with two. Cassy Sippel had Plymouth’s only RBI.

“Campbellsport did a better job at handling the cold weather conditions than we did tonight. We struggled to get anything going, offensively,” said PHS head coach Dawn Krebsbach.

The Panthers struck out five times looking.
