WINDSOR - For the first time this season, the Bristol Eastern softball team was dealt a loss on Friday, a 6-2 defeat at the hands of Windsor.

The Warriors scored three runs each in the bottom of the third and fourth innings, while the Lancers were only able to muster a run in the third and another in the sixth.

No Bristol Eastern batter had more than one hit in the contest and five went hitless. Makenzie Jankowski had the best day at the plate for the Lancers, going 1-for-4 with a triple and a run scored.

It was also Erin Girard’s first loss in the circle after she pitched six innings, giving up all six earned runs on eight hits but striking out seven strikeouts.
