Berkeley Springs dream of advancing to the state softball tournament came to an abrupt end last week. The Lady Indians lost to sectional rival Frankfort, two games to one, in the best-of-three Region II, Section I Tournament. Berkeley Springs won the first game 5-4, before losing both the second and third games of the sectional tournament by respective scores of 5-2 and 5-4.
It was a combination of factors that kept the Indians from advancing in post-season play. But, two statistics stick out like a sore thumb. First, Berkeley Springs stranded 32 base runners in the three-game series, including 12 in the third and deciding game and secondly, they committed seven errors in the 5-2 loss and four more errors in their final game of the season.
