The Fergus High School junior varsity softball team entered Thursday afternoon’s home game against Custer County (Miles City) with an unblemished 7-0 record. Five of the seven wins were by double digits, but the Golden Eagles JV came up short against Custer County, falling 6-4. The Cowgirls scored two runs in the top of the first inning and led throughout the contest.
Fergus plated a run in the bottom of the first, but Custer County added one run in the third and three in the fourth to take a 6-1 lead. The Eagles fought back in the bottom of the fourth inning to score two runs and added another run in the bottom of the fifth, but were unable to score an eighth consecutive victory. With five freshmen and one sophomore on the junior varsity squad, Coach Kristen Miller has had to use some of the seasoned veterans from the junior class to fill in where needed.
