Horde softball takes home win, two losses

sofballAfter an exciting start to the season, the girls softball team hit a bit of a lull last week but came out of it by Sunday afternoon.

On Wednesday the girls fell 7-0 to Tamarac. The Bengals’ Briana Matazinsky gave the Horde almost no opportunity to make contact with the bat, save Jordan Harrison’s single. Though Hannah Bassett was able to keep her opponents at bay, her pitching was not enough to stop them from collecting a few runs throughout the game.

Two days later the girls got on base a few times but could not make a run for a 5-0 loss to Schuylerville.

“We just couldn’t get our bats going,” Coach Katie Barber said. Jordan Harrison once again led the Horde, going two for three. Angela Vladyka only gave Schuylerville a chance to hit in the third and seventh, but her own team could not make any runs.

On Sunday the Golden Horde participated in the Maple Hill Tournament against Voorheesville and Maple Hill. Though they lost their first game 2-1 to Vooheesville, the girls got back into their groove with a 7-0 win over Maple Hill.

The Horde started this week 4-2 in the league and 5-3 overall. The girls will play Cambridge at home today and will host Whitehall on Saturday.
