    The Gobles girls softball team played a tough Coloma team last week.  The Tigers struggled in the first game, only producing one hit the entire game from the bat of Libbee Nason. Defensively, the Tigers committed five errors in the game.
    “We are a young team, but when we finally started putting our bats to work, we were able to score against a Coloma pitcher who helped the Comets win a State title last year,” said Gobles Coach Pam Westcott. “There was a lot that our coaching staff was proud of in our games against this team, but one of our goals will be making fewer errors.  
    “We will get there, with some solid focus and mental toughness,”  Westcott added.
    Emily Lopez took the loss in the circle for Gobles. In the second game on of the night, the Tigers took the early lead, going up 5-1 after the second inning.  Gobles remained on top until the fourth inning when the Comets scored six runs.  The Tigers could not answer back and lost the game, 15-5.
    Lopez was the losing pitcher, going four innings, allowing 11 hits.  Christian Hunt pitched one inning and Amanda Barber went 0.2 in the circle.
    At the plate Nason had two hits; Destiny Woodard Emily Baxter, and Amanda Barber added one hit apiece.

    In the second game, the Tigers still had trouble in the field, committing four er-rors. The Tigers were out-hit by the Panthers 13-2, and dropped the second game, 17-1.
