Softball: Aces silence Tiger bats


The first week of the softball season provided Farmington with a pair of confidence-boosting wins over Hutchinson and Red Wing. The second week was a bit more humbling.

Going up against two of the metro's elite pitchers, the Tigers managed 10 hits over two games and suffered a pair of losses to undefeated teams from Shakopee (5-0) and Prior Lake (8-1).
