Kirk Jackson

Mistakes cost Solano Community College Softball team Tuesday, halting all momentum to engineer a comeback against Sierra College.

The Wolverines jumped out to an early lead in the second inning with an RBI from catcher Sheyenne Greer.

A timely home run by first-baseman Tori Turner, during the top of the fourth, added devastation to the Wolverine’s quick advance for victory.

Solano finally rallied in the bottom of the fourth with an RBI from both Dayla Deal, outfielder, and Kim Perreira, infielder, putting two points on the scoreboard.

The Wolverine retaliation struck hard during the fifth inning with another duo of RBI’s from Greer and third-baseman, Michelle Fogal.

“We had too many errors, we beat ourselves,” said head coach Terri Pearson-Bloom.  “Five errors is too many.”

Annette Merjano put the nail in the coffin in the seventh inning with a home run to seal a 5 – 2 loss for the Falcons.

The next home game is Mar. 10 at 2 p.m. against Mendocino College.
