Third inning propels Irish past Rockets


The Maple Lake Irish softball team scored six runs in the third inning, including a three-run home run by Morgan Scheiber, to take down the Rockford Rockets 8-4 in the team’s first home game of the season on Monday. 
The Irish started out with a struggle at the bats in the first few innings, scoring one run off two base hits. 
Only three runs had been scored against them, though, by the time they came back in the third inning with six runs. 
Pitcher Kennedy Haney-Goelz held back the Rockets, only allowing one run in the next five innings.
