It took nine innings, but Staunton River earned a 6-5 victory over Liberty in softball action Monday night, completing a season sweep for the Golden Eagles over the Lady Minutemen.
“It was a good, well-played game by both teams,” noted SR Coach Donald Dellis. “That was a big win for us.”
Utilizing international rules in the ninth inning, which places a runner on second base, River plated two runs while Liberty scored one, breaking the 4-4 tie.
“It’s always good to beat your county rival,” Dellis stated. “We were fortunate to beat them twice this year.”
