After falling behind 5-0 after two innings to visiting Addison Trail, Hoffman Estates gradually inched closer before falling 5-4 in the nonconference softball game Thursday.

The Hawks got to within 1 run after 4 innings and had a runner on third base in the sixth and seventh innings.

"We just couldn't quite get that next run to tie the game," said Hawks coach Lindsey Hamma, whose team is 4-3.

Junior Charlotte Allan pitched the first three innings and sophomore Tracy Osimowicz went the final four, giving up only 1 hit and no runs.

"Tracy had a bunch of assists, too," Hamma said. "She had a real good defensive game."

The offense for Hoffman was led by senior Sam Acosta (2-for-3, 2 stolen bases) and sophomore Jordyn Fera (2-of-4, stolen base).

Junior Caitlyn Farina belted her first double on the varsity, giving the Hawks their only extra base hit in the game.
