SOFTBALL: Mistakes costly as St. Basil falls to Nazareth Academy

Mistakes and a little bad luck can kill a team, especially one that is young and inexperienced. St. Basil’s loss to Nazareth Academy is just an example of the growing pains the Panthers may go through this season.

St. Basil fell to Nazareth 11-3, although the score did not quite represent how the game was played. A few mistakes in the second and seventh led to a rout on the scoreboard, but the Panthers hit the ball hard and made some good defensive plays throughout the game, they just failed to put runs on the board.

“Nazareth is always the team to beat in our league,” St. Basil coach Steve Sonneborn said. “We played with them for a while, but we made mistakes. We are really young; we graduated a lot of seniors so we are going to make mistakes.”
