Prep Sports Roundup: Softball Bears stumble to 5-2 loss at Eagle Valley

Surrendering five runs in the third inning proved too much for Rifle’s softball team to overcome at Eagle Valley on Tuesday. The Bears responded with two in the top of the fourth inning, but were shut out in the rest of the way in a 5-2 loss in Gypsum.

Rifle was outhit, 5-4, with Brittany Neuroth ripping a double for one of those four knocks. Emily Neuroth had a hit and an RBI and Samantha Patterson and Taylor Gore chipped in with a hit apiece for the Bears, who dropped to 9-6-1 overall and to 3-2 in the 4A Western Slope League.

On deck for Rifle is a Saturday visit from Montrose. The first pitch is slated for 11 a.m.

Tonight’s Steamboat Springs-Glenwood Springs volleyball match originally scheduled to be held in Glenwood will now be played at Steamboat Springs, which is in the midst of its homecoming week.

Also, the Oct. 18 match between the two teams will be held in Glenwood Springs.
