North Sanpete Hawks shut out Carbon girls
It was a different place, but basically the same results as the Carbon High Lady Dinos were shutout by North Sanpete for the second time this season. On Tuesday, in front of a home crowd, Carbon lost 15-0 in five innings.
Carbon knew it might be a long day when they struggled to find themselves in the first inning and gave up six runs. The Hawks pitcher was throwing her usual heat and the Dino bats couldn't catch up.
The deficit slowly grew to 14-0 through three innings. Kenzie Cave started off the game on the mound, but Britni Gustas took over to try and slow down the Hawks bats. Cave came back on to finish things up in the fourth.
Gustas also broke up the no hitter that North Sanpete had going with a hit in the third. However she was left stranded at third, and never had a chance to score.
"I take full responsibility for not getting the girls ready to play today." remarked Coach Tony Pinedo in the final inning of the game.
He and his squad will regroup as they head south to take on the Emery Spartans on Thursday. Carbon handily beat the Spartans the last time the two met and hope to do the same in the late week game.
