Errors cost Panthers in ECC opener

PLYMOUTH – A slow start, keyed by miscues, hurt the Plymouth Panthers as they fell to visiting Winneconne, 7-2, in softball action Tuesday evening.

The game was the East Central Conference opener for both teams and the Wolves’ season debut. PHS slipped to 2-1 overall.

The Wolves scored five runs, all unearned, in the top of the first inning to go up 5-0. Winneconne tallied all of the runs after two outs. PHS committed two errors and then the Wolves cracked four straight hits, highlighted by Hannah Wright’s two-run homer.

Winneconne added two runs in the second to build a 7-0 cushion.

“We dug too big of a hole. We played very well the last five innings and so we will take and build on that,” said Panther head coach Gale Grahn.

“Winneconne is a very good team and they took advantage of our miscues the first two innings. Sylvia Peters really threw well the last five innings and mixed pitches really well.”

Peters took the loss but allowed only two earned runs as she went the distance. Over the final five frames she surrendered just two hits and no walks while striking out five.

For the game, the Peters gave up two earned runs on seven hits with one walk and six strikeouts.

Sommer Stoney knocked in both of Plymouth’s runs. Stoney’s groundout brought home Kayla Prahl in the third. In the fifth, Prahl scored on Stoney’s single.

Wright twirled a four-hitter en route to the win. She allowed two earned runs and one walk to go with three strikeouts.

The other hits for PHS were a single each by Gracie Kasuboski. Izzy Arbuckle and Prahl.

Autumn Hunter and Hannah Neuman paced the Wolves in hits with two each. Wright and Neuman had a team-high two RBIs each.
