Nowlin, Penn, and Tucker Swails had 1 RBI each.\r\n\r\nHead Coach Tal Swails said, \u201cIt was a typical early season game. We had multiple base running errors and a couple of defensive miscues on our part. Great to win the first game, but the game shouldn\u2019t have been as close as it was.\u00a0 We have a week before we go to Tunstall, so we will work on some of the areas we need to clean up.\u201d\r\n\r\nThe Cougars traveled to Tunstall Tuesday.
