Reporter/Teresa Ging Thorndale’s Shelby Stolte managed one hit in the team’s 18-1 loss to Rogers. Reporter/Teresa Ging THORNDALE-The No. 25 Thorndale Lady Dogs (8-10, 3-3) had their hands full with No. 3 Rogers on Tuesday night at home, losing 18-1 in five innings.

Senior Kim Leschber absorbed the loss, striking out four and walking five Lady Eagle batters.

The Lady Dogs held on to a 1- 0 lead after two innings but errors plagued them in the top of the third.

“ We had two errors in the third and they hit a homer in the same inning and we could never recover,” Thorndale head softball coach Lance Betak said.

Rogers put up seven runs in that frame, followed by three in the fourth and eight in the fifth.

Shelby Stolte was one for two to highlight Thorndale’s at bat appearances.

The Lady Dogs will wrap up the first round of league play on Friday as they travel to Lago Vista. Thorndale will have some work to do to snag one of those three playoff spots.

“Our consistency is the biggest thing that has plagued us all year,” Betak said. “We have to put good innings together and not let innings that should produce one run turn into four or five run innings.”

The Lady Dogs will start the second round of 27AA action on Tuesday when they travel to face No. 14 Lexington on Tuesday.
