STEVENS POINT, WI - The Wisconsin Rapids Red Raiders shut out the SPASH Panthers in game one of a Tuesday softball double header, 1-0, to give SPASH its first Valley Conference loss of the season. Rapids sophomore, Rhiannon Carroll, dealt the shutout from the circle, limiting SPASH to four hits and striking out two.
In the game one win, it was Carroll from the plate hammering a solo home run to center field in the top of the sixth inning to complete the all-around performance for her Red Raiders.
SPASH saw Kyla O'Neal reach third to leadoff the bottom of the fifth inning. A Carroll strikeout, fly out to Ally Verjinsky in right field, and a ground ball to Megan Clary at shortstop left O'Neal stranded at third base to end the inning. A double play in the bottom of the sixth and a 1-2-3 inning in the seventh sealed the win for Wisconsin Rapids.
