In a 2-0 loss on Thursday, the Patriots got just four hits with Wesley Bomar, Ethan Thompson, Casey Pope and Brandon Armour all hitting singles. In the first set, Gary fell 6-3 but came back and won the second set 6-4.

The Wildcats led 5-2 after three innings before Hoover scored two in the fifth and one in the sixth to tie it up and then scored a run in the eighth to win it. Their serves were strong and challenging to return, while the serves they received were put in the right spot against the Lobos' defense. We started off slower than we have in past years, but once we got going and got rolling, we were able to get those consecutive wins. "Justin is a great player; we know what he can do at the plate, and we like what we see of him on the mound. At the end of the day I was more excited that we played a good game and got the win". We're still trying to connect as a team and we're probably going to make some changes on the field tomorrow. "We all support each other, we all do good things off the ice, on the ice and do what we all do together".
With the exception of one busted play in the first half that allowed MacArthur sophomore forward Adriana Padilla to score on a wide-open tap in at the 12-minute mark, the Lady Dawgs' defense kept the District 7-6A champions in check for most of the first half for a 1-0 score after 40 minutes of action.
