After being shut out in their season’s opening game, the bats came alive for Coral Glades in their 11-6 victory over Piper High School on Friday.
Kyle Fernandes made the start and pitched 3.1 innings allowing only one earned run and striking out five. Diego Pabuence came in relief to earn the win while Angelo Smith and Sohot combined to pitch the final three innings.
Early on, Head Coach Joe Franco has liked his pitching and defense so far but is looking for more.
“Offensively we need to have better approaches at the plate in order to maximize our offensive abilities,” said Franco. “If we can figure it, we will be a scary team moving forward.”
Next, Coral Glades will face Cardinal Gibbons High School on Tuesday, March 1 at 6:30 p.m. The Chiefs are 0-2 following losses to West Boca Raton and Marjory Stoneman Douglas after going 9-16-1 last year.
