Lady Pilgrims lose in 6 at Northridge
The Plymouth softball team started off its busy week of games with a long trip to Northridge and a 10-0 loss in six innings Monday.
Leadoff hitter Morgan Oâ€™Neal was home sick with the flu, so new faces had to gain experiences in other spots while trying to get the bats going and score some runs. Unfortunately, that was not the case for the Lady Pilgrims as they failed to register a hit on the night.
Plymouth continues with several games this week, facing John Glenn on Thursday at 4:30 p.m. and Elkhart Memorial at 5 p.m. Both games are away.
