Keene softball bounces back

The Keene High softball team fought the cold and windy weather on its way to an 8-7 win over Goffstown Friday in Keene.

Maddy Miner led the way offensively with two hits, a walk and three runs scored. Maya Carey also had two hits and added three RBI.

Emma Bartlett pitched the complete game, striking out 11 batters and walking five.

In the fourth inning, Asianah Gostyla showed off her defensive skills, hauling in a deep fly ball to right-centerfield to end the fourt inning and save two runs.

Keene had an 8-3 lead heading into the top of the sixth inning, but Goffstown climbed back into it, scoring twice in the sixth and twice in the seventh.

Despite the late push, Keene held on for the victory.

The Blackbirds (8-1) host Merrimack Monday.
