Tigers 10, Trojans 5

Farmington scored four runs in the top of the first and never trailed as they defeated New Prague 10-5 at New Prague Thursday, April 21.

The Trojans scored a run in the first when Kelsey McFarland reached on a fielder's choice, and scored on an error.

New Prague had seven hits, with Amber Hoffman, McFarland and Koehnen getting two each and Olson one.

Raiders 7, Trojans 1

Despite the 7-1 loss, Coach Pat Perkinson said the Trojans game against Northfield Monday, April 25, was one of their better showings of the season.

The Trojan had 11 hits and committed no errors in the field. However, they weren't able to bunch their hits together and managed just a single run.

The Raiders scored three times in the fourth inning and twice more in the fifth and sixth.

New Prague's only run came after Courtney Wolf singled with two outs in the seventh. Ali Jo Hoffman ran for her, then Amber Hoffman, Munson and McFarland all reached base. McFarland got the RBI, scoring Ali Jo, but Amber Hoffman was thrown out at home for the final out of the game.

Amber Hoffman pitched six innings, allowing seven hits and seven runs while striking out two.

McFarland had three of the Trojans 11 hits, while Amber Hoffman and Olson had two each. Other hits were from Munson, Megan Dyslin, Ali Jo Hoffman and Wolf.
