On Monday afternoon the Ringgold softball team played host to section foe West Mifflin looking to avenge a loss to the Titans earlier in the year.

Ringgold fired up the offense in the first inning. With Nya Adams and Jillian Scherer on base, Ashlee Selembo singled on a 2-2 count, scoring both runners.

The Titans would bounce back in the top half of the second inning scoring two runs to draw even with the Lady Rams 2-2.

The Lady Rams exploded to score four runs in the bottom half of the third inning. Haley Resosky powered the big inning with a 3-run homer over the left center fence!

Ringgold would continue to hold the lead until the Titans began to chip away, scoring 1 run in the 5th and 2 runs in the top of the 6th to pull to the game to a 6-5 margin.

The Lady Rams would respond and score 2 more runs in the bottom half of the 6th inning and clamp down the defense in the top of the 7th to secure the 8-5 win.

Jillian Scherer got the win in the circle. She pitched a complete game, allowing eight hits and five runs while striking out one.

Nya Adams was a perfect 3-for-3 at the plate to lead the Ringgold offense along with Resosky.

With the victory the Lady Rams improve to 6-4 in section play. Ringgold will look to keep the winning streak alive on Wednesday, when they travel to Jefferson Hills to take on Thomas Jefferson.
