The Lady Whalers Softball team dropped its second game of the season this week to the visiting Bayport-Blue Point Phantoms. The Phantoms jumped on the Lady Whalers early, scoring 3 runs in the top of the first, and steadily expanding on that lead as the game progressed. The Whalers responded in the bottom of the same inning, when -— with runners on second and third — Melanie Stafford hit a 2-RBI single to a gap in right field. Kasey Gilbride added a 2 outs, solo home run of her own in the bottom of the seventh. In the end, the Phantoms proved too much, winning 10-4.Despite the loss, the Whalers are still in charge of their season, currently holding a record of 5-2.
