Marsh Valley mercy rules Panthers

Staff Writer


THOMAS - Fresh on the heels of a doubleheader loss to Filer, the Snake River Panthers ventured onto the diamond for an all important conference tilt against arch rival Marsh Valley. The contest turned into a one sided affair as the Panthers had no answer for the Eagles offensively or defensively, eventually falling 12-2 in a shortened five inning affair.
The Panthers handed the ball to young hurler Kollin Gardner for the start and things began to fall apart for the Snake River nine as the Eagles came with their bats loaded and on fire right from the start. It didn't help any that the defense left a glove or two in the dugout, or so it seemed, as miscues would lead to an early deficit.
"We just aren't working as a complete unit," Coach Kevin Curtis said. "We are nine different pieces working independently, but not together and we need to continue to work towards that team unity. There is talent there, some really good parts, but the engine just isn't firing on all eight cylinders."
