“Starting pitcher Ciara Garcia had a great night for the Lady Trojans. Not only did she pitch consistently throughout, allowing just two unearned runs in the first inning, but she came up big at the plate going two for three with two doubles, two RBIs and two runs,” said coach Robert Peralta.
Briana Gobel and Rebekah Mendoza also made major contributions by coming up with big plays on defense as well as having good vision at the plate, which accounted for two walks and two runs, and three walks and three runs, respectively.
Through three innings the Lady Trojans only held a 4-2 lead, but pulled away in the top of the fourth with six runs and by shutting down the Port Lavaca offense. The game was stopped prematurely after the fourth inning due to the JV time limit.
“Overall, this was the team’s most consistent effort of the season. I’m proud of the patience the girls showed at the plate and how well they ran the bases,” Peralta said.
“It’s amazing to see the improvements these girls are making daily as they come together and jell as a team.”
The JV girls played host to the Gregory-Portland Lady Wildcats on Friday night and will still be at home on Tuesday evening when the Victoria West Warriors pay a visit here.
