Coach Meunstermann said the game was about who got the breaks and hit the ball the hardest.

“Both teams hit the ball; we had a few more errors than they did,” the coach said.
Muenstermann singled out Tisdale for her three triples and play in the outfield. She is a “great senior leader,” the coach said.

The Waterloo coach Matt Mason said it was a hard day for both teams in the field on Wednesday with the wind.

“We knew we would need to hit the ball against Jersey,” he said. “Our pitcher threw the ball pretty well. Josie Metzger and Taylor Downen and Taylor Kaufmann had solid games all around. It was a good, all-around team win. Scoring 11 runs is a big deal for us.”

Jersey faces Civic Memorial today and travels to Carrollton on Friday for more girls softball action.
