No one can fault Nikki Bukovsky for the Staples softball team's recent setbacks.

The righty Bukovsky allowed no earned runs on two hits with four strikeouts and a walk Monday in a 1-0 loss to Danbury. Staples made four errors overall, and its defense paved the way for the unearned run to score in the bottom of the sixth inning.

At the plate, Bukovsky had a hit. The Lady Wreckers had only two hits. Katherine Friend had the other hit.

Staples dropped to 5-10 and needs to win three out of its last five games in order to make the Class LL tournament.
