Raiders topped OVUHS softball
RUTLAND — Host Rutland outlasted the Otter Valley Union High School softball team on Wednesday, 6-3, dropping OV to 0-2. The Otters will look to break into the win column on Tuesday at Mill River.
Raider pitcher Skyler Bird tossed a two-hitter in her team’s opener and struck out 12, but the Otters rallied for three runs in the seventh and had the tying run on deck before Bird bore down to end the threat.
Josie Cone broke up Bird’s no-hit bid in the sixth, and Madison French drilled a two-run single for OV in the seventh to key the rally. Jordyn Pope, Shayla Phillips and Mia Politano scored the OV runs.
Otter hurler Morgan LaPorte allowed four hits, but the Raiders bunched them in their five-run third. LaPorte struck out three and walked three.
