Davie fuels Rockets past SK; Milford edges Margaretville girls

By Julia Green
Roxbury 9, South Kortright 3 (Thursday)
Heather Davie was a thorn in the side of the South Kortright Rams’ softball team on Thursday – and not just from her place inside the pitcher’s circle.
Davie’s base running baffled the 11th-seeded Rams’ defense and contributed to a number of runs for the sixth-seeded Rockets, who won their first sectional game, 9-3. She had the lone triple for Roxbury in the third inning and stole home to give the Rockets a 3-1 lead. Davie, who went 3-for-4 and threw eight strikeouts to lead the Rockets to victory, earned the win to move to 14-2 on the season. She and Karly Bolger combined for a total of six stolen bases.
