GLEN ROSE â€” A recurring theme for the Harmony Grove Cardinals this season has been their inconsistency. In Fridayâ€™s 10-6 loss to Glen Rose, it was no different.
â€śThat is the story of our season so far,â€ť Harmony Grove coach Brandon Kelly said. â€śOne game as a team we will bat .530 and the next game we will bat .190.
â€śLast night, we put together a complete game and tonight was inconsistency and that goes back to us being young there is no excuse.
â€śMentally we melted down tonight.â€ť
