WARE – Ware rallied for eight unanswered runs to defeat Gateway at home in a high school softball game Thursday, 8-2.
Dana Britland went 2-for-3 Gabby Dame and Audrey Gamble each had a base hit and scored a run.
On the mound, Gamble struck out three batters, and walked just one.
“The score doesn’t tell the story of the game,” Gateway coach Matt Bonenfant said. “We put runners on … we just didn’t push any across.”
“They’re putting it together – we have a moment here or there,” he continued. There’s just an expectation here now … I think we’ll get some wins now going forward.”
