Spring River starts fast, can't keep it up

Wednesday, September 16, 2009

The trip to Jonesboro did not have the expected positive results for the Spring River senior softballers on Sept. 3.

In game one, Spring River started like an Ozark thunderstorm.

They scored early and often, but the  Jonesboro team answered back with an offense of their own.

Storms run out of energy and so did the Spring River offense. When the game was over, the scoreboard read Jonesboro 15, Spring River 14.

In game two against Trumann, Spring River seemed like they were still in shock from the first game.

The Trumann bats were lively and got off to an early lead. Spring River tried to come back, but the early lead was too much to overcome in this one and Spring River came up on the short end of a 15-10 score.

In summary, the SR offense was alive and well early in game one and then it abruptly stopped.

In game two the offense never got going.

Dave Keylor did hit a grand slam home run.

The defense made some key errors that allowed many unearned runs. There were some good plays, but costly errors allowed innings to continue when they should have been over.

Herb Hess pitched both games.
