Holy Names dealt the Spartans a shocker at home this week as the Cougars escaped with a 19-9 win in girls fastpitch softball Wednesday.

The Metro League contest started the usual way, with Bainbridge scoring early.

The Spartans brought home a first-inning run, but Holy Names scored twice in the second for the 2-1 lead.

Bainbridge answered with two runs in the third, but the game soon slipped away from the Spartans.

The Cougars tied the game 3-all in the top of the fourth, then went on a tear with eight runs in an unending fifth inning and five more in the sixth.

Claire McCarthy and Halina Tracy helped Holy Names hand the Spartans their first Metro League loss.

McCarthy had two home runs and nine RBIs, while Tracy went 4-for-4 with two doubles, two RBIs and three runs,

The Spartans’ queen of the long ball again homered for Bainbridge. Natalie Allen repeated the home-run heroics she’s becoming known for with another homer in the Metro matchup.

Kate Kinney also was big at the plate; she was 2-for-4 with a double and two RBIs.

Riley Gregoire finished with 3-of-5 batting and two RBIs, while Reichert was 3-for-5 in the contest.

The loss dropped Bainbridge’s overall record to 8-2 with

an 8-1 Metro League standing.
