The Morristown softball team fell behind early and never was able to get its offense going in a 15-1 loss to a quality Eastern Hancock team in five innings.
The Yellow Jackets (1-7) gave up three innings in the first inning but the Royals, ranked No. 6 in Class 2A with a 10-1 record, did their most damage in the second, crossing home plate 11 times.
Morristown’s offense was held to two hits in the game – one apiece by Kayla Baier and Kaylin Waltz.
Baier hit a line drive single to right field in the second inning and Waltz singled to left field in the fourth.
Rhylee Moran, who pitched a complete game, scored in the fourth on a fielder’s choice by Delaney Cornn for the final margin.
Moran gave up 15 hits and walked seven but struck out three.
Maddie Turner and Tatem Adams combined to strike out five for the Royals, which has been ranked every week since the start of the season.
The Yellow Jackets return to action at 5:30 p.m. Monday at Triton Central.
