“The score didn’t really indicate how much we’ve got to work on,” Blake Lyons said. “I thought we hit OK, and we were pretty good on defense. We made some good throws, some good decisions on where to throw, but some of the younger girls also hesitated and didn’t make throws when they should have. And our pitchers have to do a better job throwing strikes and getting ahead in the count.
“Their pitchers after their first girl struggled some, so it was hard to really gauge where we are with our bats. But we took advantage of what they gave us, ran the bases well, and that was good to see.”
