SCC downs River, 7-3

SARDIS – Gabby Capaldi and Maddy Gulan both belted homers Friday as Steubenville Catholic topped River, 7-3, in a regular-season high school softball contest called with one out in the sixth inning due to rain.

The Crusaders (21-4) and Pilots (25-4) both will be playing in the Ohio Division IV district tournament next week in New Philadelphia. If both teams win their semifinal games, they would meet Thursday’s title game.

Megan Lloyd picked up the win in the circle for Steubenville Catholic, striking out eight.

Haylee Bowers homered, singled and knocked in two runs for River, while Mikayla Cieszeski doubled.
