ROCKVILLE -- After some recent hard-luck losses, the North Putnam softball team had one go its way Monday night, taking a scoreless game after four innings and blowing it open for an 8-0 win at Rockville.
The Cougars (12-9) scored twice in the fifth and added six in the seventh.
Taylor Judy threw a complete game for the Cougars, striking out 12 Rox. She allowed just two hits and a walk.
Leah Crosby got the Cougars on the board in the fifth, but was joined by several teammates in the balanced attack. Carlye McGaughey added a pair of RBIs, while Logan Doyle, Ashley Curry and Judy all added one RBI.
Six different Cougars collected one hit each.
"We just put some hits together finally, and kind of blew the game open at the end," coach Jim Brothers said. "We still made some mistakes, but some of the things that happened to us recently worked in our advantage tonight.
The Cougars host Riverton Parke at 5 p.m. today.
