The Lady Raiders softball team got rained out. But the baseball and soccer teams had a good week as they get ready for spring break.

The baseball team took a couple of wins last weekend over a strong Southern Fulton team from Pennsylvania. Meanwhile, the soccer team earned a split last week to up their record to 2-1 for their early play at season’s beginning.

The guy’s baseball squad brought their record up to 3-2 with a pair of wins this past weekend over the visiting team. Southern Fulton is about the same size as Rappahannock and last year played in their state’s finals.

On Friday, in a very close game, the guys in gray and red earned a 4-3 win over their guests. Wyatt Bunch opened on the mound for Rappahannock, going six innings and striking out six. Slade Keyser came on to get the save. Jack Dooley had two hits and two RBIs to lead the Raider attack. Slade Keyser also added two hits.

Keyser was on the mound on Saturday, again against the Southern Fulton squad, allowing one hit and striking out eight over six innings. Hits were also hard to come by for the Raiders, who used a combination of walks, errors and a hit batter to get on the scoreboard. Dooley had the three RBIs. Also collecting hits were Remington Barrack, Wyatt Bunch and Zack Smith off the Southern Fulton pitchers.

Raiders soccer

The previous Friday, the Raiders soccer team faced Mathews and came away with a season opening 7-0 shutout win.

Jerry Fisher got a “hat trick” plus one, scoring four goals. Also booting one home for scores were Erik Castillo, Brian Lopez and Christian Patton. Goalie Ethan Douglas got the shutout with 12 saves. This past week on Monday, the Raiders got their second win of the young season with a 2-1 overtime victory over 4A Caroline. Luis Silva and Castillo both scored.

On Friday they lost a 4-3 overtime game to West Point. The Pointers advanced to Group A state level play last season.
