The Senators were able to harness some of their pop at the plate at various points in a five-inning, 18-4, loss to Spanish Springs.

In the bottom of the second, Corine Doran roped a loud single before Rhys Branham doubled off the wall to put runners on second and third.

With two outs, Kiele Franco singled up the middle to plate the first two runs of the afternoon for the Senators.

In the fourth it was Duran again, launching a solo home run to right center field on a 2-0 pitch. Doran was 2-for-2 at the dish as was Franco.

Sofia Morrison left the yard in the bottom of the fifth, homering over the right field wall.

The Cougars tallied at least two runs in every inning Monday.

“We have to be 100 percent clean. We have our opportunity to grow and I look forward to having some more time on the dirt,” said Carson High head coach Scott Vickrey. “If we can get some people on the bags and scoring seven or eight runs we will have a shot at getting some more ‘W’s.’”
