PREP SOFTBALL: Falcons run-rule Redskins

GOSHEN — One bad inning can set the tone for an entire game.

That was the Goshen High School softball team’s undoing Thursday night at Shanklin Park, as the Redskins gave up six first-inning runs en route to a 10-0 nonconference loss to visiting Fairfield.

The contest was halted after five innings due to the 10-run rule.

Faifrield (1-0) got an all-around effort in its 2013 season opener.

Falcon coach John Skibbe and his team were happy to get out on the field finally after several weeks of indoor practices due to the lingering winter.

“We were ready to play, and we got clutch hits when we needed them,” Skibbe said.

The Falcons also got a dominating pitching performance from Danica Mast, who hurled a shutout while giving up just  two hits and fanning six.

Mast said it felt good to get the season started on a good note.

“We were getting a bit claustrophobic with all the inside practices,” Mast said with a smile.

“Tonight was only the second time this year I’ve gotten to throw off the pitching rubber.”

It seemed to work out pretty well for Mast.

The Falcons took advantage of a Goshen error to get on the board in the first.

Riley Troyer had an RBI single in the frame and Mast helped her cause with a two-run single to help key the six-run outburst.

The Falcons added four more in the top of the fifth to seal the win.

Margaret Moore had a two-run pinch-hit double for the big blow in the inning.

Kaela Miller led the Falcon offensive attack, going 2-for-4 with a run scored and two RBIs.

Lacee Mulcahey and Jessica DeStefano had the Goshen hits.

Goshen coach Cassie McCormack said the bad first inning set the tone for the contest.

“We didn’t come out the same way we came out against West Noble,” McCormack said. “Mast kept us off-balance with her off-speed pitches. We struggled at the plate today.”

The Redskins are idle for most of spring break, returning to action next Saturday, April 6 with a doubleheader at Mishawaka. Fairfield is back in action with a nonconference game at Wawasee Monday, April 5.
