Roughrider Softball Splits Doubleheader
For the second consecutive time this season the #1 ranked Roughrider softball team split a conference doubleheader Friday afternoon. The visiting Matadors from Arizona Western College won the first game 5-3 and YC bounced back in the nightcap shellacking the opponent 18-0. Yavapai is now 45-4 overall and 21-3 in ACCAC action.
In the first game, the Roughrider bats were like the weather…cold. Jenna Rodriguez dropped her second straight game to fall to 19-3. Despite the poor offense, Yavapai had their chances in the final two innings but failed to push the runs across.
All the frustrations of the first game poured out in the second game with YC scoring 18 runs backed by a home run by Rodriguez and a grand slam by Aubri Chiquete. Audrey Workman won her league leading 22nd game in a run-shortened game.
On Tuesday, April 7th, YC plays host to fellow conference foe Central Arizona College. Two weeks ago, Yavapai swept a doubleheader from the Vaqueras in Coolidge. Tuesday’s twinbill will begin at 12:00 PM at Roughrider Park in Prescott.
