LOCUST FORK — The second softball meeting between Locust Fork and Appalachian ended much the same way as the first one, with the homestanding Hornets blasting the Eagles 15-2 in five innings Friday.
It was huge game for Christian Rhoads, who slammed a pair of three-run homers plus a run-scoring triple in four at-bats. Her seven RBIs are a season high for the team.
Jamie Gail Hudson was 4-for-4 with a run-scoring double, Haley Glasscox was 2-for-4 with two RBIs, and Brittany Files hit a two-run single for the Hornets.
Starter Tailor Massey went three innings and gave up two hits. Reliever Anna Hood pitched the last two innings, allowing two hits.
