BROOKSIDE --  The heat drained the Longhorns of their energy in their game against Brookside. The low enthusiasm was a key factor in the loss against the Cardinals in a score of 5-3.
West needed to rally in the top of the seventh in order to have a chance at wining the game, yet could only gain one run out of at least three needed. The only run came in by sophomore Rachel O’Connor who was hit in by a double from senior Emily Mystic. Earlier in the game, Mystic had an out-of-the-park home run, another double, and a single. Freshman Jackie Mader had a double as well.
Surprisingly the Longhorns’ problem was not making contact, but staying safe on base. Four times West got out on base after making it safely to first.  It was frustrating for the Longhorns that the simplest thing like base running was becoming a problem.
Junior Ali Silberhorn started out pitching a solid game with four strikeouts and no walks. Mystic pitched as relief in the sixth and prevented Brookside from scoring. Few errors on defense gave Brookside the opportunity to easily score on West from the start.
With two games left in the season, West hopes to finish strong in the end. As of now they are 6-8 in conference play and have an important game scheduled tomorrow against Wellington
