Saint Francis High School
Rocori High School
For the final game today for the Fighting Saints at the Becker Tourney they faced off against Rocori in the 5th place game.
The Saints jumped out to an early lead in the top of the first inning driving in three runs on a sacrifice fly from Emma Lero and a hard single hit to center field from Ally Mathwig that drove in the other two runs.
Unfortunately, Rocori had the Fighting Saints timing down perfectly as well in the first inning and were able to string together several hits back to back to take the lead back and push eleven runs through in the first inning versus two of the Fighting Saints pitchers.
Emily Sarell came into the game in the second inning and threw an amazing game for the Saints for the remainder of the contest, shutting down Rocori the rest of the way and allowing only 4 more runs throughout the contest.
The Saints fought their way back in the third and fourth innings, but the lead was a little too big to come back and take over the game.
