The Community R-6 varsity softball team literally played even at home against Silex on Tuesday in every, single inning except the third, which was enough of a difference to put the squad on the wrong end of a 2-0 decision.

Working against the Lady Trojans was the fact they had two errors and just one hit, which came off the bat of Maddee Gastler. On the flip side CR-6 got quite the performance in the circle from Emma Angel, who allowed two earned runs on three hits and a walk with three strikeouts in six innings of work.

Also drawing three walks in this contest for the Lady Trojans was Emmi Johnson and adding a walk each were Gastler and Dedlanie Bowers. Taren Clark and Johnson also had a steal each.

CR-6 hosts Van-Far for an Eastern Missouri Conference contest on Aug. 31.
