COLEMAN — The Montabella Mustangs softball team started slow and finished strong against the Coleman Comets on Monday night.
The Mustangs were mercied in game one 12-1 in five innings and won the second game 6-4 in Mid-State Activities Conference play.
Emily Lint struggled on the mound and took the loss in game one. Lint allowed eight hits and walked 10.
“We’ve been plagued by too many errors in our last few outings and our first game was no exception,” Montabella coach Vicki Sawyer said.
Taylor Smith had an RBI single for the Mustangs.
Cheyann Frasle earned the win in game two, allowing six hits with six strikeouts.
The Mustangs’ bats got hot in game two, which led to eight stolen bases.
Sarah Ranney went 2-for-3 with an RBI and two stolen bases. Taylor Hutson scored twice and doubled, Melissa Allen had an RBI single and Mariah Davidson had a hit and three stolen bases in the game.
“We cut our errors in half in game two and our bats started waking up,” Sawyer said. “We got a chance to be more aggressive on the base paths.”
The Mustangs improved to 5-14 and 3-3 in the MSAC. They host Mount Pleasant Sacred Heart Thursday.
