GSL softball season ends in playoff opener

The Glencoe-Silver Lake softball team saw its season come to an end on Friday, May 20 following a 7-0 loss to visiting Holy Family Catholic in the opening round of the Section 5AA Tournament.

While the majority of the contest was much closer than the final score indicated, a series of Panther miscues contributed to a five-run seventh inning for the Fire, turning a close contest into a lopsided affair.

Holy Family scored the only run it ended up needing in its initial turn at bat. After putting the first two runners on and moving them both into scoring position on a double steal, the Fire took a 1-0 lead on a sacrifice fly. As it turned out, that lone run was more than GSL could muster over the next seven innings.
