Tabor softball thumped at McPherson Tourney

The Tabor College softball team saw its losing streak increase to four games with an 0-for-3 showing at the McPherson tournament Saturday.

?We got thumped,? coach Johnny Basset said. ?The first game was good. Avila won 30-plus games last year, and we were beating them 3-1 with an inning left to play.?

Tabor misplayed a bunt, opening the floodgates on a four-run inning and went on to lose, 5-3. The Bluejays also lost to Morningside 16-0, then to Haskell Indian Nations, 7-2, in a chilly night contest.

?Morningside is easily the best team we?ll see all year,? Basset said. ?The game against Haskell started at 7 p.m. with the temperature already down to 34 degrees.?

The Bluejays most recent win came against Central Christian on March 5. Tabor hammered the Tigers 9-0 in the first half a doubleheader in McPherson. The Tigers took a measure of vengeance against the Bluejays with a 6-1 win in the second game.

Coming?Tabor (1-6) is set to play Bethany at 5:30 p.m. in addition to a pair of other non-conference games at the Sterling College tournament Friday, and will open conference play hosting Bethany March 19.
