Softball Lady Bucs make short work of Grafton in 10-0 victory


B-U’s Alyssa Rohr throws another three-inning no-hitter

TENNERTON – An eight-run second inning propelled the Buckhannon-Upshur Lady Buc softball team to a convincing 10-0 victory over Grafton here Monday evening in Big 10 Conference action.

The Lady Bucs sent 11 hitters to the plate in the second inning as the game was halted after three innings on the mercy rule.

Freshman Alyssa Rohr pitched a three-inning no-hitter, allowing two walks and six strikeouts.

“It was another dominate performance for Alyssa,” remarked Buckhannon-Upshur head coach Levi Bender. “I don’t think they hit one out of the infield.”

The Lady Bucs took a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the first when Rohr scored on a fielder’s choice hit by Alli Robinson.

Audrey Gaudet started the second inning with a bunt single and she scored on a double by Kayli Curry.

Following a pair of strikeouts, the Lady Bucs went back to work with two outs.

Shelby McDaniels drew a walk and then Alli Robinson lined a single to left field scoring pinch runner Olivia Caynor.

Following a Ciara Melton walk that loaded the bases, Brooklyn Robinson hit a two-run single to center that scored Alli Robinson and courtesy runner Jordan Cutright to make it a 5-0 game.

Brooklyn Bryant laced a one-run single to center that scored Melton, and after a walk to Gaudet, Curry smacked a single back up the middle that plated Brooklyn Robinson and Bryant to increase the B-U lead to 8-0.

Gaudet wrapped up the scoring in the inning racing home on a passed ball to make it a 9-0 contest.

The Lady Bucs wrapped up the game in the bottom of the third.

Rohr hit a one-out single to left field and McDaniels ended the game with a double to right that scored Rohr.

B-U amassed 10 hits in the win with Rohr and Curry each getting two apiece.

“Our offense had some timely hits that took advantage of Grafton’s mistakes,” noted Bender.

Grafton made three errors in the game.

The win improved the Lady Bucs to 6-4 overall and 4-2 in the Big 10 Conference.
