Crestview drops softball opener

Published: Tuesday, February 4, 2014 at 06:13 PM.

With Rolison in control in the pitcher circle it looked as if the Bulldogs had the game well in hand.

Rolison only allowed two hits and a walk in the first five innings while striking out 10.

By the time the Patriots came to bat in the sixth inning they had begun to adjust to Rolison’s pitching.

The first three Pace batters in the sixth inning each got a hit. Patriot pitcher Peyton Carpenter helped her own cause with a 2-run double that scored Patterson and Chelsea Stotlman.

Stotlman scored on a Savanna Allen hit to tie the game at 3-3.

McSween didn’t have any second thoughts about leaving Rolison in the circle for the seventh inning.

“I felt like Taylor pitched a great game and it didn’t go our way tonight,” he said.
