FAIRMONT — oooooo
BRIDGEPORT — North Marion’s softball team dropped its second straight game on Thursday, falling 6-4 on the road at Bridgeport.
The Huskies finished with three hits on the day. Danielle Fluharty, Shasta Pyles and Morgan Clyde each singled.
“We had a nine-inning game (on Wednesday against University), so I thought we might be a little flat,” North coach Brad Harker said. “I didn’t think all four tires would be.”
Chelsi Latocha started for North (6-2), scattering nine hits with two walks and a strikeout. Danielle Fluharty took the loss in relief, as several miscues in the field hurt the Huskies’ chances late.
