DUDLEY - The Shepherd Hill Rams rallied for four runs in the bottom of the sixth inning to defeat the Oxford Pirates 5-1 in Southern Worcester County league softball action this past Friday (April 13) at Shepherd Hill.
Senior hurler Molly Covill was impressive for the Rams, striking out eight batters and allowing only four hits against a very powerful Pirates team. She did so while out-dueling Pirates senior ace Nicole Mangaudis, who is one of the top pitchers in Central Mass.
The Rams were led at the plate by the sister duo of Cassidy and Marissa Colby, who banged out three hits apiece. Shelby Stracher also added a pair of hits for the Rams, while Covill helped out her own cause with a pair of singles.
The Rams are now 2-1, while the Pirates are 3-2.
