The loss leaves the Beeville girls with a 10-4 overall record while they now stand at 4-1 in district.
“We just fell short with our sticks and were unable to jump on them early,” said JV coach Ophelia De Los Santos.
Moody struck for two runs in the bottom of the first to get the early lead. The visitors added what turned out to be the winning run in the top half of the second for a 3-0 lead.
The local girls got single runs in both the third and fourth but could not push across another one or two runs before the time limit expired.
Theresa Amador pitched a three-hitter for the Beeville girls and struck out 11 Moody batters out of a possible 12 outs.
Patsy Longoria, Amanda Gonzales, Selyna Guerra (two hits), Krystal Cuellar, Tori Munoz (two hits) and Alexis Pelitire all hit safely for the Beeville girls. Pelitire knocked in the Lady Trojans’ second run, scoring Munoz. Gonzales also crossed the plate for Beeville after getting a base on balls. A couple of wild pitches and a passed ball brought her all the way around for the run.
“We will learn from the loss as we prepare for the second half of district play,” De Los Santos said.
The Lady Trojans hosted Ray on Thursday night and will be in Gregory-Portland on Tuesday evening.
