Goodhue blanked by Kasson-Mantorville
Goodhue found itself in another pitchers’ duel — the second game in five days that ended with three or fewer combined runs. Neither the Wildcats or Kasson-Mantorville was able to amount much of an offensive threat during Monday’s game as the combined total between the two was seven hits. The KoMets were able to come out on top in the end however, winning 3-0.
Goodhue surrendered runs in the first and second innings, while allowing one run to come across later in the fourth inning. The Wildcats did lead in one category, although it wasn’t one it hoped — errors. Goodhue committed three compared to one from its opponent.
