Five errors and a 6-0 deficit were too much for the Chadron High softball team to overcome in an 8-1 season opening loss to Southern Valley/Alma on Friday.

Josie Downing singled to open the top of the 3rd and came around to score the Lady Cards only run on a wild pitch.

Ella O’Brien pitched 5 2/3 innings of relief, giving up three earned runs and striking out six.

Chadron will be in Lexington on Saturday for tournament action where they will open up against the Minutemaids at 9:00 am.
