Itawamba 10 New Albany 0

Errors hurt the Lady Bulldogs in their loss at Itawamba Tuesday night.

Brooke Sides picked up the loss for New Albany (6-4, 1-2), as the Lady ‘Dawgs were unable to find their bats against the Lady Indians.

“Our bats didn’t show up last night,” NAHS head coach Michael Kelly said. “We had a hard time swinging the bat and putting the ball in play with authority. We had some key errors that really hurt us.”

New Albany will play at Tishomingo County Friday and Shannon on Saturday.

New Albany have five errors in the game, while giving up 10 runs on 10 hits in the loss.

“We’re going to spend the next couple of day getting back to the mental approach because we know we’re better than that,” Kelly said. “We had more of a mental breakdown, but I think we’re still in great shape. There’s no reason why we can’t make a good, solid run because we have great bats, we were just a little short last night.”
