3/9/2018 12:50:00 AM

Dejia Benn's three-run double highlighted a seven-run rally in the fifth inning that broke open a 2-2 game as Softball blasted visiting Boone, 9-4, in a critical District battle. DP (11-1) struck for two runs in the bottom of the fourth before Boone tied the game in their next at-bat but DP countered with a knockout blow in the bottom of the fifth. Dejia Benn led off with a single to right and scored on Kati Kelly's base hit to give the Panthers a 3-2 lead. Megan Rush then jumped on the first pitch and ripped a double into center that sent Kelly to third. Tiare Kong brought home Kelly with a shot to right for a 4-2 lead before Rush scored on a wild pitch for a another run. With runners at second an third, Jordan Hartman lined a shot into right to score Kong for a 6-2 lead. DP wasn't finished, though. Dejia Benn stepped back into the box with the bases loaded, as DP batted around the order, and stroked a 1-1 pitch into left field that cleared the bases to cap the DP scoring. Raychel Trocki had another stellar outing with seven strikeouts without allowing an earned run. DP has now won ten straight games and will look to add to the streak Monday at Windermere.
