MABEN â€“ It is not every day that a team posts 47 hits and 42 runs in nine innings, but that is exactly what the East Webster softball team did during its two game stint of Euporaâ€™s Slow Pitch Classic.
The Lady Wolverines defeated Grenada 19-1 first, then turned around and knocked off Bruce 23-0 to start the season 2-0.
â€śThe opening weekend for us went real well,â€ť East Webster coach Lee Berryhill said. â€śWe played real strong defensively while offensively we hit throughout the lineup. We kept turning the order over and just kept going. (There's) not a lot of holes on either side of the ball.â€ť
Seeing his team provide such impenetrable defense makes Berryhill proud because the coach knows when it comes to slow pitch, it is all about stopping the other team from scoring.
