The Prowler softball team saw their opening pitch of the season Tuesday night as they kicked off the season with a 7-1 victory over the Seminole Maidens. On the mound was Amber Corral who recorded the victory with eight strikeouts and only allowed one run.
The Prowlers had a strong night at the plate recording seven runs that started off early in the game with three runs in the first two inning of play with RBI’s by Mary Villarreal, Heliana Bueno and Rebecca Rodriguez.
After a scoreless third and fourth inning, the Prowlers struck again with Mary Villarreal connecting on a drag bunt scoring two Prowler runs. The Prowlers finished out the night with RBI’s by Crishna Villarreal and Desiree Blanco.
Despite having the lead, the Prowlers defense stayed focused and went three up three down in the last two innings of play. Head Coach Greg Conners said, “We did not play our best game, but we did not make excuses”.
After the game Conners went on to comment on the Prowlers determination saying, “They did whatever it took to get the W, and that’s what you have to do sometimes”.
The Prowler JV also took on Seminole Tuesday and walked away with a 5-2 victory over the Maidens. On the mounds Bella Renteria led the Prowlers with three strikeouts while only giving up two runs. Offensively the Prowlers had their bats ready with key hits coming from Krystal Porras, Dania Mendoza, and Abby Garcia.
