FREDERICKTOWN — The Fredericktown softball team has been heading down the road to respectability this year.

The Freddies already have three wins this season after winning just one game last year. Monday, they had a chance to take a huge step on that long road as they faced one of the best in the Mid-Buckeye Conference in Northridge. The Vikings, though, showed them why that road is a tough one, pulling out a 3-1 victory over the host Freddies.

“It’s tough to watch when we know we’re capable. We’re learning to compete and we competed today. We just need to execute the basic plays,” said Fredericktown coach Mackenzie Shaw.

The Freddies (3-7 overall, 1-2 MBC) battled with the league-leading Vikings for all seven innings, but a few small mistakes proved costly. An error on a fly ball in the second inning led to Northridge’s first run. Then, a baserunning mistake took the Freddies out of the big inning in the sixth.
