Christian Academy coach Walter Pauly lauded the performance of two of his newcomers.
“We played well as a team tonight with contributions from many players, including freshmen Mackenzie Haworth and Abby Falcone,” Pauly said.
Pauly also liked what he saw from Alex Falcone and Koch.
“Alex Falcone did a good job distributing the ball and getting a lot of hitters involved, and she played great defense,” Pauly said. “Clara Koch also had a strong defensive game. North Harrison was scrappy and dug a lot of balls.”
