The Nordheim Lady Pirates have lost their last two district games this past week against Pettus and Austwell-Tivoli.
Both games were played at home on Sept 30 (Pettus) and Oct. 3 (Austwell-Tivoli). Nordheim coach Randy Castillo said, “[With Pettus] we just did not play ball like we needed to. We can’t [avoid] making mistakes if we cannot take care of the small stuff. We need to start out with confidence, ready to win and to compete.”
With Austwell-Tivoli we had too many unforced errors. We started to get some momentum then Austwell made a great hustle play to [regain control of the ball].
Nordheim (6-8, 2-5 district) will play Yorktown (15-6, 7-0) at home at 5 p.m. on Oct. 7.
