GRESHAM — Still waiting for the lumber to emerge from its slumber, the HRV softball team took to the field Monday against Gresham.
But coach Phil Hukari and the girls will have to wait another day after stringing together just three hits in the 2-1 loss.
“Lack of offense hurt us again,” he said. “The defense played well and pitching was solid, but it just wasn’t enough.”
Talia Hinman picked up HRV’s lone RBI in the sixth, driving in Lesley Betts with a single. Hinman also had a strong showing on the mound, facing the minimum nine batters in the final three innings.
Lauren Gaulke started the game, giving up two earned runs, both in the second.
HRV had a chance to tie the game in the top of the 7th when shortstop Ashley Carter reached on a walk with one out, but no one could drive her home.
The Eagles (0-1, 5-6) will look to put the loss behind them today when they face David Douglas at 4 p.m. at Westside Field.
