The Wildcats' offensive woes continued Monday in Adams, Minn., as they were shut out for the third straight game. The Wildcats managed just three hits against Southland, a team that is in their subsection.
"We're not making the adjustments we need to make at the plate," Goodhue coach Chris Irvin said. "We're talking a lot about it, but we haven't seen the results yet."
The Wildcats also struggled in the field. They made three errors and one of the most costly ones came in the first inning. Goodhue had a chance to return to the dugout down 1-0, but an error extended the inning and Celina Yunker proceeded to hit a two-run home run.
Yunker's hit rolled all the way to the center-field wall, which was 275 feet from home plate. Irvin said it would have probably hit the base of the fence at most parks.
Anne Lodermeier suffered the loss. She pitched four innings and gave up six runs, but just two were earned.
Goodhue dropped to 1-10 overall. It plays host to a Byron team on Tuesday that also has only one win on the season.
"We're hoping we turn the corner here tomorrow night," Irvin said.
