Effingham Junior High School outlasted Paris 15-10 in softball action Tuesday evening.

The Mustangs took a 7-0 first inning lead but led only 9-8 after the third inning. The Mustangs then tallied four runs in the fourth and two more in the seventh.

"We played very well from top to bottom," said Coach Lindsay VanBlaricum. "We subbed a lot and everyone did their job regardless of where we put them. I'm very proud of the girls and starting the season off 2-0 is a great start."

Miranda Fox led the squad with three singles while Lauryn Douthit contributed two singles and an RBI and Carsyn Fearday with two singles. The Mustangs are back in action Thursday at Teutopolis.
