Coach Ray Limon said the girls didn't have their swing down as good in the first game as they did in the second game. They needed to adjust to a pitcher they'd never seen before, he continued.

The girls will face Mohave Accelerated at Nikki Bunch Field at 4 p.m. Tuesday, March 24. They then host Blythe at 1 and 3 p.m. Friday, March 27.
