PLYMOUTH â€”Â Plymouth made its run, but the rally was just a bit too little, too late.
The Lady Pilgrims battled back from a five-run top of the first by Warsaw with three runs in the sixth, but they ultimately fell short 6-4 in a Northern Lakes Conference softball game with visiting Warsaw at home in Centennial Park Monday.
â€śIâ€™m really proud of how we played today; we didnâ€™t show that we were behind,â€ť said Plymouth head coach Haley Church. â€śWe looked like we were trying to take charge the whole time, and it was fun to see them put it together.â€ť
