Late mistakes cost Brahmas’ softball against Southwestern

Defensive miscues and no communication among the players prevented the Brahmas’ softball team to stay in the game against Southwestern College on Tuesday.

The Brahmas suffered a 6-1 loss the Jaguars in a hard fought battle.

Pierce held the Jaguars’ powerful offense in the first few innings, sustaining defensive momentum up until the 5th, when with the score remained at 1-1, the Jaguars got two runs.

With Pierce down 3-1 they continued to push off a relentless Jaguars team.

The Brahmas did there best to get as many hits as possible to score, but Southwestern’s defense stopped Pierce in its tracks.

The Jaguars added three more in the 7th to increase their lead to 6-1 and take control of the match.

“We didn’t hit enough,” head coach Pat Grennan said. “I’m encouraged that we’re a better hitting team than that.”

Unfortunately, the team was making more mistakes than hitting balls.

“We really need to turn it around, we’ve been working really hard during practice and I expect a lot more this semester,” sophomore Katie Kargari said. “Minor errors were killing us.”

The Brahmas are looking to improve on lessening their mistakes and maintaining their strong defense going into important conference matches.

“I think we did really good today, our defense was hard,” freshman Candice Lujano said. “I think we’re ready for conference as long as we take it one step at a time.”

Head coach Pat Grennan is expecting his team to pull together and step during the tough conference matches.

“These games are getting us ready for the games that count, we have to keep building up momentum,” Grennan said. “I’m optimistic right now.”

The Brahmas have one more game at Chaffey College on March 6 at 1 p.m. before going into an important conference match against Citrus College on March 8.
