The match-up between the Bishop Lady Broncos softball squad and the Rosamond Lady Roadrunners was a 10-inning epic played out at home Friday afternoon.
Tied 9-9 at the end of seven innings, it took three more to determine the winner. The Roadrunners pulled ahead in the 10th for a 10-14 win.
âThe girls played hard,â said coach Stacy Van Nest. âThey never gave up. The score and our league record (0-3) do not reflect all that our girls have accomplished. They played two ranked teams this week and challenged both.â
The Bishop Broncos beat the Rosamond Roadrunners by a score of 3-1 Friday.
No, it wasnât a soccer game, it was baseball in what amounted to a defensive battle. Broncos Doug Watterson and Tanner Kruse won that battle by a margin not reflected in the score, combining for 15 strikeouts against Rosamondâs Matt Francoâs three.
The win catapults Bishop ahead of Rosamond for the top High Desert League spot with a 3-0 record in league, 11-2 overall.
