Mingoes fall to the Lady Warriors
The University of The Bahamas (UB) Mingoes women’s softball team dropped to a 2-3 win-loss record after a loss at the hands of the Lady Warriors, 11-1, in New Providence Softball Association (NPSA) action on Tuesday night on the Bankers Field at the Baillou Hills Sporting Complex.
Brendia Ferguson picked up the win for the Warriors and Charity Rolle suffered the loss for the Mingoes.
The Warriors ended the game in four innings via the mercy rule.
Sophia Cartwright had the only hit for the Mingoes, going 1-for-2 with a run scored. She had a triple and also stole a base in the contest.
For the Lady Warriors, Melinda Bastian went a perfect 3-for-3 with two runs scored. She had a home-run and drove in two runs for the Lady Warriors. Nadia Thompson went 2-for-3 with a run scored and a RBI.
Mingoes’ Head Coach Shane Albury said the loss was due to a lack of defense.
“I knew that coming into the game it would be a rough one having three or four starters out due to injuries,” he said. “However, some of the errors that were made I didn’t expect those to happen but that’s a part of the game. A few errors blew it open in the third inning for them and they just took control at that point.”
The Mingoes will play the Brackettes in their next game, at 7 p.m. on Saturday on the Bankers Field at the Baillou Hills Sporting Complex.
