UNIONTOWN — Highlights were few and far between for Marmaton Valley High’s softball team Monday in their doubleheader opener.
Host Uniontown rolled to a 15-0 win in three innings in the first game, despite collecting one hit on Wildcat starter MaRyiah Cavender. Cavender was victimized by 10 walks. She struck out two.
The Wildcats failed to get a hit in three innings.
The second game was more competitive, Wildcat coach Brenda Mills said, but Marmaton Valley still found itself on the short end of a 10-1 setback.
“The score wasn’t indicative of how well we played the second game,” Mills said. “We had some good hits, but we couldn’t string them together.”
Tabitha Ford had two singles and a double and Kaitlin Ensminger had a single.
But the Wildcats didn’t score until Kacie Shadden pounded a sixth-inning home run.
“She really got a hold of that one,” Mills said.
Makenzie Harrison pitched, giving up five hits.
Mills pointed to several positive plays on defense for the Wildcats.
Ashlynn Pinkerton made several nice plays in left field, Mills said, while Cavender and Ford each gunned down Uniontown runners trying to score.
The Wildcats travel to St. Paul Thursday.
