The Pirates move their record to 12-4, while the Knights fall to 4-9.

“The girls played a good game,” said RHS head coach Andy Phelps. “We got timely hits when we needed them. I also thought Jenna Woods pitched a great game.”

Riverside built a 4-1 lead after the third inning.

The Pirates added three more runs in the sixth inning to take a 7-1 advantage.
