The Wildcats (4-8, 2-8 HVL) finished with just four hits for the game and made four errors. Paige Gadient, Emily Ryan, Emilee Roschen and Meredith Watson had hits for Goodhue.
“I just don’t think we reacted to the strike zone,” Wildcats head coach Chris Irvin said. “Took a lot of first-pitch strikes.”

The Wildcats face Hayfield Tuesday in Hayfield.
