Roxbury Lady Rockets win Mountain Division title

By Julia Green
The Roxbury girls’ softball team, which finished last in 2008, completed a stunning turnaround on Monday by beating visiting Downsville, 1-0, to clinch the Delaware Mountain League division title.
The Rockets, 12-2, clinched the title, thanks, in large part, to a strong showing by Roxbury pitcher Heather Davie both in the circle and at the plate. Davie tallied 13 strikeouts and four walks, limiting the visiting Eagles to a mere three hits, and hit what would be the game-winning RBI double in the sixth inning for the Rockets, who committed no errors in the outing.

Margaretville 19, Gilboa 7 (Tuesday)
The Blue Devils dealt a hardy loss to visiting Gilboa last Tuesday, defeating the Wildcats 19-7. The Blue Devils jumped out to an early lead, scoring seven runs in the first inning to Gilboa’s one.
“Gilboa did score an unearned run in the first inning – we had an error in the infield – but we came up at the bottom of the first inning and scored seven runs,” said Margaretville Head Coach Rick Funck. “Chris Costa led off with a walk, Cody Fronckowiak singled, and Patrick O’Connell hit a triple. We only had three hits, but Patrick had a triple to knock in a couple runs and we scored a couple more that inning on sac flies.”
