LOUISVILLE OH- Louisville’s schedule never gets easier. They learned that on Friday night as the Leopards took a tough loss to power house Massillon Jackson 5-0.

The game was never out of reach for the Leopards, but their offense just couldn’t string together hits. Matti Benson, and Kenzie Denzer went a combined 2-6 at the top of the Leopards line up. Jenna Collins put in a 1-3 day. Chelsea Thouverin followed her up with a 1-3 day and the only extra base bit of the day for Louisville with a double.

Even though Jackson scored 5 runs, only 2 of them were earned for starter Katie Heath. She went all 7 innings throwing 106 pitches. She struck out one, and gave up 8 hits.

Jackson is still undefeated on the season at 7-0. Louisville will try to bounce back with two games on Saturday. They’ll play Hillsdale at 1:00, and then they’ll play Lake after.
