HS Softball: O’Connor beats SM in Game 1
SAN ANTONIO — If unearned runs never counted and opposing teams weren’t allowed to score off errors, San Marcos would be up 1-0 in a best-of-three series against the fourth-ranked team in the state.
Until the powers that be change the rules of softball, the Lady Rattlers must learn to overcome their mistakes in order to beat a good team like San Antonio-O’Connor. San Marcos committed five errors in a 9-5 loss to the Lady Panthers in the area round of the Class 5A playoffs held at San Antonio’s North East ISD Softball Complex.
“It was frustrating,” Lady Rattler head coach Cathy Stoughton said. “They’re a good ball club and we had them. We just made some uncharacteristic mistakes and let it snowball. We have to be strong enough to come back from our mistakes and not dwell on them.”
