Published 12:00 am Thursday, June 1, 2006

LAKE MILLS &045; The Lake Mills softball team looked like a group playing its first game of the season as five errors helped SCMT to a 7-4 victory.

The Bulldogs managed just three hits in their season opener but did take advantage of some SCMT errors to grab a 3-1 lead after one inning.

&8220;It was a poorly played game with nine errors between us,&8221; said Lake Mills head coach Jim Boehmer. &8220;We had some new faces in the lineup tonight and we just have to be better at all nine positions. SCMT did what they had to do in the seventh &045; swing and make us make plays. Give them credit.&8221;
