RTCA pulled out to a 2-1 lead after the first inning off two-RBI hit by Maddie Joiner. In the second inning with two runners on base, a single up the middle by Morgan Newsome scored two more runs for a 4-1 lead for the Crusaders. Railee Thomas and Newsome and Meredith Durden reached to load the bases, and then a bloop into left field by Joiner plated two more runs to give RTCA a 6-1 lead. Charlee Ely was in the circle for RTCA and had a good game as she held Gatewood to just two runs. Gatewood scored their only other run in the top of the third inning to make the score 6-2.

RTCA continued to add to their lead over the next couple of innings on the way to a 15-2 run rule victory.

RTCA was back in action on Tuesday of this week on the road at Thomas Jefferson after presstime. They will not play again until next week.
