When a three-run lead became one after five innings, Robin Brand considered handing the ball to a relief pitcher.

In the end, the Mount Vernon softball coach stuck by senior Amanda Roe, and Roe made sure her coach’s faith paid off in a big way. 

Roe (13-9) breezed through the first four innings by allowing just two hits and no runs with four strikeouts as the Mustangs built a 3-0 lead. After the aforementioned two-run fifth inning, Roe allowed three more hits over the final two frames, but no more runs.
