Warriors start fast, but fall to Bobcats


The Rochester softball team couldn’t take advantage of a quick start on Friday, as the Warriors fell to Aberdeen 15-6 in a non-league matchup.

The Warriors (6-6) came out strong, as a Layna Demers RBI single, a Macey Fluetsch two-run double, and an Arissa LeBaron two-run single gave them a 5-0 lead in the first.

Aberdeen took over in the second, though, scoring eight runs to take the lead, and another big inning in the fifth put the game out of reach.

Demers didn’t start the game in the circle, but she ended up pitching five and a third, giving up nine hits and four earned runs while striking out seven.

Rochester will head to Montesano on Saturday for another non-league contest before heading to Aberdeen for a league matchup on Wednesday.
