Rockets Softball Takes Home First Win

After a heartbreaking, one-run loss in their debut, the Rockets mounted a late-game surge to solidly defeat Bodine in their second game of the season. SLA knocked in four runs in the first inning and launched to a 5-2 lead going into the third inning. Unfortunately, Bodine tied the game 7-7 heading into the fourth. Jumpstarted by SLA@B junior, Gianna Flego's triple in the 4th, SLA once again pulled ahead before a rough defensive stance in the 5th. The Rockets pulled together as a team and held Bodine to no runs in the last two innings and scored 10 to finish with a comfortable 22-14 win. Sophomore pitcher, Tia Roberts, pitched a full game, with 5 strikeouts. Five Rockets, including freshman, Ashley Delacruz, hit for extra bases. The Rockets take on Central on Tuesday.
