The softball team came up with its biggest win of the season on Friday, defeating Bethel Park 1-0 to keep alive Baldwin’s hope of winning a fifth straight section title.

After a disappointing 10-2 loss to Canon Mac Wednesday night at senior rec, the girls softball team needs a win Friday to tie for the section title.

Junior Cassie Carlson felt the team never came together and did not play nearly as well as they should have.

“We had a bunch of communication errors that was a big part of the game,” Carlson said.

Baldwin out hit the Big Macs but never really generated any offense.

“We all hit at separate times but we never got a rally going,” Carlson said.

Senior Addie Tagg believes her team can rebound going into Friday’s game at Bethel Park.

“Our thoughts going into tomorrow’s game are that we need to play hard and play smart,” Tagg said. “We can’t let our loss against Canon Mac get us down. I know that we will show up to play.”

Bethel currently leads the section. If the Highlanders do not win Friday, their four-year streak atop the section will come to an end.
