The #2 ranked Roughrider softball team split a doubleheader against Phoenix College Tuesday afternoon. Yavapai is now 9-1 on the season and 1-1 in ACCAC action.
The Rider bats were hot in the opening game as YC won 16-3. Estela Pinon got the victory and Amelia Willadsen got the save. Alex Landon and Pinon hit home runs.
In the nightcap, Phoenix used a walk-off home run to win 3-2. Willadsen took her first loss of the season (6-1). “We need to learn from this lesson…that we need to play hard for two games if we want to sweep a doubleheader,” commented head coach Stacy Iveson.
Yavapai returns to the field on Tuesday, February 8th for a twinbill at Mesa Community College. The games will start at 2:00 PM.
