For the second time in less than a week, the Melcher-Dallas softball team enacted the 10-run rule against Mormon Trail – though this time it extended their season by a game – as the Saints downed the Bluegrass Conference’s other Saints team Monday night 11-0.

The win in the opening round of the Class 1A Regional Softball Tournament sets up another showdown with in-county rival Twin Cedars. The Saints won the first match-up 7-6 in Bussey; while the Sabers evened the series in Melcher-Dallas with a 4-3 win in their last meeting. The two teams will square off again in Bussey on Thursday night at 7:00 p.m. for the Regional Quarterfinals.
