After the double header action, Head Softball Coach, Bruce Robertson, commented, "These were good games for us. We faced a solid team who was consistent through the order with good bats and speed. Due to some injuries we played around with our line-ups. Having tough games like these with injuries forces you to look at your line-up and see who can play where and who will step up next."
Next up the Mustangs they travel to CCRI Sunday for 12/2pm Double Header.
