An explosive sixth inning for Winona Cotter led to Triton being shut out, 12-0 on Monday, May 6.

Triton only had two hits for the game, by Haley Staffon and Emily Hodgman. "I give credit to Cotter they really hit the ball well today especially in that 6th inning," commented coach Brent Haala. "We just couldn't bunch anything together and they made some real nice defensive plays when they needed to."

Haley Staffon pitched all 6 innings walking 1 while striking out 7.

On May 7, the Cobras played against Pine Island at home, losing 5-4 in 9 innings.

Pine Island took a 3-0 lead in the top of the 3rd. In the bottom of the third, Haley Staffon hit her first home run of the year to make the score 3-1. Triton took a 4-3 lead in the bottom of the 4th with an error, walk and hits by Brittney Lyke and Karissa Wright. Pine Island tied the game in the 5th with one run. Triton loaded the bases in the 7th but failed to score and again in the 8th had runners on 2nd and 3rd but failed to bring home the winning run. Pine Island finally went ahead 5-4 on a solo home run to center field in the top of the 9th inning.

"This was tough game for us to loose," Haala said. "We did a nice job of coming from behind to take the lead but we just couldn't get key this today when we needed them to put the game away." He added defensively they left a few plays out there that cost them some runs.

On Friday, May 10 Triton lost to Goodhue, 10-4. "We just did not play a very good game today," Haala said. "Haley pitched well enough to win we just didn't make the plays and our bats didn't wake up until it was too late."

Haley Staffon walked two and struck out ten. Sara Bucher scored two runs, Mateah Lamoree scored one run and Brittney Lyke scored one run.
