Broken Bow overpowers Arcadia in win

Arcadia just couldn't catch a break.Broken Bow's bats were too much to handle Wednesday night as the Spirit overpowered their foes, winning 19-9.Third basemen Tressa Ripp had another fine offensive outing, tallying three singles and one doubles. She had plenty of help around here. Every batter finished with at least one hit and eight of the nine batters had at least one extra base hit."I think we had really good base-running and good hitting," shortstop Sydney Holcomb said. "Hannah and Jasmyn did really well on the mound too."For Arcadia, who fell to 1-7 on the season. The work is going to have to come in the area of fundamentals.There were many errors that lead to an inflated Broken Bow scoring effort."I think we need to work on tracking the ball and concentrating on our throws," third basemen Sapphire Sillivan said. Shortstop Kassidy Mundt also feels like team chemistry has played a part in the teams performance at times throughout the season."I don't think it's as much our errors as the fact we need to work as a team," she said. "It seems like at the beginning of the game, were strong, but then as errors or hits start to happen, people tend to get a little testy with each other."After playing five games in a six day stretch, the players are welcoming a four-day break before their next game."It's going to feel really good because my body is super exhausted and I think we all need a break," second basemen Lizzy Griffith said.The Spirit also pulled out a 10-9 victory over Spalding Tuesday night.
