Trojans down Panthers to move on


After giving up the two first inning runs, Trojan starting pitcher, Alli Deao, was in control for the next five innings. She would only allow two hits, issue no walks, and add four strikeouts.

“They kind of surprised us in the first inning but once we got our bats going, I knew we’d be OK,” said Deao. “I didn’t really do anything differently with my pitches.”

Neither team scored in the sixth but the Panthers scored two runs in the seventh off the Trojan relief pitcher to make the final 8-4.

Mount Pleasant used three hits and took advantage of the lone Trojan error to score two unearned runs.

“We will have to adjust at the plate as we will see faster pitching,” said Bradfield. “At this time of the year, you need to rely on solid pitching and make plays to continue to move on. I think that those are things that are characteristic of the way we play.”
