DAYTON - Last week, the Dayton girls’ softball team started their season by beating Riverside 12-7, but then dropping both ends of a double-header against Colton, 6-4 and 20-10.

At Riverside (Boardman, Ore.), on March 21, Hannah Becker hit a two-run homer in her first at-bat to help her team jump on top with six runs in the first inning.

The offense slowed considerably after the second inning as both teams settled in with solid defense. Destiny Brincken had four RBIs for the day for Dayton.

Thursday, Dayton hosted Colton in a double-header and lost both games, 6-4 and 20-10. Dayton left nine runners stranded in each loss.

“We would do the work to get the runners on, and then we couldn’t bring them in,” Dayton Assistant Coach Desirae Jones said.

The bulldogs had their chances in the first game to stay with them and couldn’t deliver. After tying the score twice in the second game, Colton got the runners on and then stepped up with nine hits in the last three innings to pull ahead for good. 

Kaleigh White had a 2-run homer in first game for Dayton. For Colton Taylor Thompson had 2 homeruns in the first game, and Abby Kelley had one in the second game.  Dayton is now 1-2 overall.
