The Bradwell Institute Lady Tigers hosted the Richmond Hill Lady Wildcats on Tuesday at their home opener.
It was the second time the two teams met; the Lady Wildcats run-ruled the Lady Tigers last Saturday at the Paulson Tournament. Despite the 13-3 loss Tuesday, tiger head coach Sharyl Eastlake said the girls fared better.
"The girls were a different team tonight," she said. "They were relaxed, and it showed at the plate."
Richmond Hill scored two runs in the first inning. Lady Tiger Patrice Antalan led off for her squad with a double in the first inning and stole second base. Kelsey Rogers followed with a walk. Both Antalan and Rogers advanced on a pass ball and Patrice scored on the second pass ball advancing Kelsey to third. Rogers scored on a single by Barbara Rego. The freshman also pitched for the Lady Tigers.
Tiara Howard came in as Rego's courtesy runner and stole second base. She scored a run for the team bringing the score to 3-2 with the Tigers leading. Richmond Hill scored one run in the second inning and two in the third taking the lead 5-3 and never looked back.
The Lady Wildcats took the win 3-13.
"The girls know what they have to do in practice to improve," Eastlake said. "Mother Nature needs to give us a reprieve from the rain so we can get some productive practice time in."
The JV team played immediately after the Varsity Girls. The JV Lady Wildcats won 13-6. Karson Rogers relieved Katie Rogers on the rubber and threw 2 Strikeouts in the game.
