Running into one of the Big East Conference top teams didn’t do the Cedar Grove-Belgium softball squad any good last week.
After winning their two previous games, the Rockets got swept on the road by Elkhart Lake-Glenbeulah, 11-5 and 8-2, on Friday.
“They played well. Their shortstop (Sonia Schubert) hit a couple of home runs,” Cedar Grove-Belgium coach Scott Soerens said.
For the Rockets, Morgan Green continues to tear the cover off the ball, whacking 13 hits in four games last week.
In the second game against the Resorters, Adrianna Thiele pitched six innings, allowing nine hits and three walks and striking out two.
Maria Dries allowed one hit in the final frame.
Dries had three hits, a double and an RBI. Green and Jenny Simmelink each had two hits as the Rockets scored single runs in the first and second inning.
In the opener, Thiele allowed 10 hits and five walks while striking out five.
