The guys lost at Rappahannock Tuesday, 2-1 then topped Lancaster for the second time 10-1 there.

At Rappahannock, with the score tied 3-3 in the top of the ninth, Zoie Sadler walked, followed by an error, Jaylyn Thompson drove in two runs, Hannah Hayes drove in a run as did a double by Taylor Basye.
