Roseburg gets past Barlow 2-1, moves into Class 6A quarterfinals
It’s two up and two down for the Roseburg High softball team.
The seventh-seeded Indians only managed three hits, but rode their pitching and defense en route to a 2-1 win over No. 10 Barlow on Wednesday in a second-round game of the OSAA Class 6A playoffs at Stewart Park.
The victory moved Roseburg (18-9) into the quarterfinals for the first time since 2013. The Tribe will travel to Beaverton Friday to face No. 2 Sunset (23-5), a 6-1 winner over No. 15 Newberg Wednesday. First pitch is scheduled for 5 p.m.
“That’s the kind of playoff game you want to play, especially when you have a No. 10 team and 7 team,” said Roseburg catcher Samie Bergmann, whose home run in the bottom of the first inning gave the Indians the lead for good. “We played great defensively and Mady (Blevins) pitched really well, and I think our three hits were timely hits.”
