Despite Banner Monico's two-hit night and Kaci Bachtel's strong first five innings on the mound, Fairfield's varsity softball team fell 9-0 to Madisonville last Tuesday, March 15, in Fairfield. Bachtel shut out the hot Lady Mustang bats through five innings, striking out batters in each inning, after giving up four unearned runs in the first. The Lady Eagles could muster only three hits off the Madisonville hurler, and the Lady Mustang hitters finally broke through on Bachtel in the final two frames to garner the shutout.
