Softball roundup: Lamar, Brush come away with 3A top-10 wins

No. 5 Lamar softball is riding a five game winning streak at the right time of the season. 

Lamar scored six runs in the second inning, then added four in the sixth to beat No. 4 Rocky Ford 11-8. The win gives Lamar its fifth win in a row heading into the final game of the season.

Lamar is now 10-1 in Class 3A's District 2.

This is the second time Lamar has beat Rocky Ford this season. Lamar took a 6-1 win the first meeting.

Lamar senior Haleigh Prosser is hitting .542 with 22 runs-batted-in and eight doubles.

No. 3 Brush softball beats No. 7 University

In a rematch of an extra-inning Brush win last Thursday, the Beetdiggers took care of University in easier fashion.

Brush beat University 7-3 to cap a 16-3 season.

In the game earlier this season, Brush used four runs in the top of the ninth to edge University.

Brush is currently in second place of 3A's District 3, but with Eaton playing Strasburg on Saturday, there is a possibility of a three-way tie at the top of the standings.

Should Eaton beat Strasburg, the Reds would move to 12-2 in league. Strasburg, after the loss, and Brush would also be 12-2 in league.
