Rally comes up short for Lady Maroons in 5-4 loss at Mattoon
| A late rally came up just short for Robinson High School's softball team in a non-conference loss Friday night (May 4).|
The Lady Maroons fell behind early and never could come all the way back in a 5-4 loss at Mattoon.
Robinson trailed 3-0 after two innings, but scored a single run in the third and another in the fifth to pull within 3-2. Mattoon struck for another run in the bottom of the fifth to make the score 4-2, only for the Lady Maroons to score again in the top of the sixth to close the gap to 4-3. However, Mattoon scored again in the bottom of the sixth, while Robinson got the run back in the top of the seventh, but could not get the tying run across the plate.
Hailey Dean led RHS at the plate with a solo home run and a single, while Marley McKee doubled twice and scored two runs. Jaedyn Johnson, J.J. Logan and Kyrsten White added a base hit and a run batted in apiece, Madi Staley singled and Malia Gunn scored a run.
Tess Krause suffered the loss on the mound, giving up five runs, four earned, on 12 hits, while walking one and striking out one in six innings.
