The Moulton-Udell Lady Eagles finally captured their first win of the season at their own softball tournament on Saturday.

Moulton beat Harmony 8-6 in the first of two games they played Saturday.

Freshman Katie Selvy picked up the win from the pitcher’s circle after going six innings, allowing seven hits and throwing five strikeouts.

“We have started to play better ball this week,” Moulton-Udell head softball coach Jason Ogden said. “We aren’t giving teams a lot of extra outs like we had been earlier in the year. We have been making plays and really showing signs of improvement. We are having good at-bats at the plate, but not a lot to show for it yet. I like our look at the plate. We just need to break through and get on a roll.”

Moulton-Udell closed the tournament with a 12-4 loss against Grandview Park Baptst.

Moulton-Udell (1-13, 0-4 in BGC) will host Diagonal tonight in a V/JV doubleheader starting at 6 p.m.
