PHS falls 14-3 to Taft, host BCHS Thursday
Porterville High School softball lost 14-3 to Taft in a non-league game Tuesday at home.
The Panthers (0-2) struck first in the bottom of the second with Greenly Wilson scoring on an RBI from Cienna Enriquez for the game’s first run of the day. But it was nearly all Taft (2-1) after that thanks to costly errors.
In the top of the third, the Panthers were leading 1-0 with two outs but proceeded to give up eight runs on four hits and three errors. Two of the hits were a double and a 3-run home run.
“It all started on that two outs too,” PHS head coach Jennifer Schoonover said. “We had good memento going, we were doing good and it was -- our errors seemed to be catching up to us and unfortunately they’re contagious.”
