The season started on a sour note for Janesville Craig’s softball team Tuesday.
Madison Memorial scored runs in every inning and coasted to an 11-1 Big Eight Conference win in a game that was halted after five innings due to the 10-run rule.
Craig had one one hit in the game, an RBI single by Maddie McCormick in the top of the fifth inning.
“Memorial’s pitcher had a lot of speed and great control,” Craig coach Kristen Worm said. “She’s going to surprise a lot of teams this year.
“We were missing three players, so others had to step into less familiar positions.”
Craig hosts Madison Memorial on Friday at the Youth Sports Complex.
