    Highlands is playing about as good as they can right now. There's always room for Improvement but when you don't make very many mistakes and you are hitting the ball, you are going to be hard to contend with. Starting to click on all cylinders....And at the right time too!

    Another nice game by the Birds as they blank the Cougars 3-0 and move their streak to 10-0. Lots of tension (by everyone but the players) on the HHS side as the Lady Cougars came in ranked #1 in the coaches poll. Another strong outing by Spencer recording 6 Ks against no walks allowing 7 hits. Her ERA has dropped below 2 and is hitting her spots.

    HHS dents the plate in the opening frame on a Quillen single and a laser double to the fence by Graybill.

    In the Conner 2nd, the Birds turn the first of their two double plays after Snelbaker singled, K, then Connoly bunts into a 5-4-6 DP to get out of the inning.

    The Birds record their second DP on a comebacker to Spencer, who fired to Dutcher to get Mattlin doubled off.

    In the bottom of the third, after a Biz K, Quillen hits another line drive single to center and Coffey drives a single to left. With Graybill coming to the plate, the Cougars decided to take their chances with Spencer and Dutcher and walk Graybill of the "on purpose" variety to load the bases. Biz buckles down and gets a K which brings Dutcher to the plate. Dutcher takes a 0-1 pitch and drives it to RF for a single, scoring Quillen and Coffey for some insurance runs.

    Hitting for the Birds
    Graybill 1-1 2 walks 2B rbi SB
    Quillen 2-3
    Dutcher 1-3 2 RBIs
    Coffey 1-3
    Gabbard 1-3
    Daley 1-3




    Conner 0 7 0
    HHS 3 7 0

    The "fun" schedule continues tomorrow as they host the powerhouse NDA Pandas at 5:00.

    How did the 5-4-6 double play work on the bunt. Ball bunted to Quillen at third throws it to first with Gabbard covering for the first out. Was The second out made at third? Or second by Coffey?

    Fun game to watch. Seeing HHS for the first time this year I was very impressed with their defense. It's going to take some solid hits to beat them, I don't think they will give up too many errors. The difference last night was a couple timely hits by the Birds which Conner failed to do. The Birds looked relaxed and ready to play with good energy. Very impressed with the third baseman, kids a player. HHS looks poised to make another run this year. If these two teams see each other again it could easily turn out the other way but for now HHS looks more mentally ready for a serious run.

    Agree.....

    The one thing that I was most impressed with watching them last night was how relaxed they were and not panicked like I have seen them in the past. With Haley Coffey back in 100% full swing they are going to be a tough out for sure. They are 1-2 solid hitters just shy in the line up with running away with the 9th. Depends who shows up ready to compete. But on the flip side, they are 1 Pitcher away from an very early exit. As long as Bailey Spencer stays focused and healthy they will be scary good the next couple of weeks(month).

    That's the case for 95% of the teams.

    " The Birds looked relaxed and ready to play with good energy. "

    Sometimes I wonder if I am at a softball game or watching an episode of So you think you can Dance. Their game face consists of smiles, laughs and hips -a- shakin. I know it drives coaches nuts but it works for them. Don't mistake those pearly whites as a lack of focus, they're just showing their teeth before they bite....

    With Graybill coming to the plate, the Cougars decided to take their chances with Spencer and Dutcher and walk Graybill of the "on purpose" variety to load the bases. Wise Move!!!!! Believe Me!!!!
