PEDRO — If the formula works, don’t change the ingredients.

The Rock Hill Redwomen used good defense and teamwork for another win as they beat the South Point Lady Pointers 6-1 Wednesday in an Ohio Valley Conference game.

“It was the same thing. We used teamwork and our outfield made some good catches,” Rock Hill coach Mary Harper said. “We had good contact at the plate. We had only one strikeout, so we really put the bat on the ball.”
