The Roughrider softball team won their 10th consecutive game Thursday afternoon in Phoenix over South Mountain Community College, 9-0 and 16-2. Yavapai improves their overall record to 18-6 and their conference mark to 13-5.
In the first game, Yavapai jumped out to an early lead in capturing the 9-0 victory. The game was decided quickly as the Roughriders exerted its will early with seven runs in the first three innings.
A two-run triple by Dustie Durham and a sacrifice fly by Andrea Sotelo during the first inning and an RBI single by Durham, an RBI single by Sydney Forray, and a two-run home run by Andrea Sotelo in the second inning fueled YC’s offense early.
Durham racked up three RBIs on two hits for Yavapai College Roughriders Softball.
Amy Robinson held South Mountain scoreless for six innings. Robinson struck out six and allowed no walks and two hits.
An outstanding effort by Sydney Forray in the nightcap carried the Green and Gold to the 16-2 win in five innings.
Forray racked up six RBIs on two hits. She homered in the second and fourth innings.
Eight runs in the opening three innings allowed YC to easily put away the Cougars. An RBI single by Mikayla Newham, a two-run double by Nicole Matta, and a three-run home run by Forray during the second inning fueled the offense early.
Dustie Durham got it done in the circle on the way to a win. She allowed two runs over five innings. Durham struck out four, walked four and gave up seven hits.
The offense easily handled South Mountain pitching as seven hitters combined for 17 hits, 14 RBIs and 12 runs scored.
