Dreams of a Sectional title came to an end for the Whitko Lady Wildcats Tuesday evening in their opening game of the Fairfield IHSAA Softball Sectional.
A lack of offensive consistency and several unfortunately timed errors sent the Wildcats down to a 4-0 defeat against the host Fairfield Lady Falcons.
The Wildcats were able to get a base runner on in all but one inning, but were not able to string the hits together and were not able to advance a runner past second base until the seventh and final inning.
