When pressed to name names, Sarah Good becomes an easy target for the girls.  Like Tituba, she is of a lower social status than the rest of the town.  As a ragged, homeless woman, she is often ignored or dismissed as being crazy.  Since people in the town already questions Sarah Good's Christian character, the assertion that she works for the devil is easily accepted and not put into question.  Once the lower rungs of society are out of the way, the girls turn their claims towards more respected women like Elizabeth Proctor.
