Streator 5, Princeton 1: All the scoring was done in the sixth inning of Thursday’s nonconference play at Streator with the Lady Bulldogs’ five spot making the difference. Abby Jaques hit a solo shot for the Tigresses (6-8).

PHS pitcher Madison Menzel, pitched five scoreless innings before being touched for five in the sixth. She scattered eight hits with four walks and seven strikeouts.

“It was a good game,” Princeton coach Bob James told the Ottawa Times. “We’ve been struggling defensively, so I’m really proud of the kids for playing good defense against Streator, who always has a tough team and hits well. We’ve got to score more than that to compete, but I’m proud of our effort.

“Credit (Streator). They covered a little more of the plate than we did, and they made us pay for it.”
