Fairbury Splits Road Triangular

Playing on the road for second straight Thursday, Fairbury’s Lady Jeffs softball squad came away going  1-1 at the Adams Central softball triangular.
In its opener, Fairbury lost in six innings, 4-3 to Adams Central.
The game was a back-and-forth contest with the Lady Patriots scoring the winning run in the bottom of the sixth inning with the game called at that point due to the 75-minute time limit.
“We kind knew going in that Adams Central would be very comparable. The two teams kind of went back and forth hitting in a low-scoring game,”remarked Fairbury Lady Jeffs coach Taylor Biehl.
“Overall we did okay. We probably could have executed better with runners on base, but we didn’t do that as well. Macy Ohlde pitched a good game, we just probably needed to have some more timely hits,”said Biehl.
