The Pirates were led in hitting by Maddy Schroeder with two hits. Katie Bennett, Kelsie Fischer, Whitney Tallent, Allie Geis and Becca Koors all chipped in singles.

Head coach Russell Wilhoit said Tallent, pitching in her first high school game, “did a very good job.” He said she only allowed nine hits and just seven earned runs, while walking four batters and striking out three.

“She has a bright future,” said Wilhoit of Tallent.

Wilhoit credited his team with showing competitiveness from start to finish.

“Even though the Lady Pirates were behind the whole game,” he said, “they never gave up and put in a great effort against a good team, and will continue to get better each game.”

Greensburg next plays Saturday at Columbus East in a doubleheader, with games at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.
