Hopkins Softball Outslugs Minnetonka
The Hopkins softball team scored ten runs in the first five innings and then held off Minnetonka for a 10-7 win Friday.
The Royals scored two runs in each of the first three innings to take a 6-3 lead.
After the Skippers pulled within 6-4, Hopkins added four more in the fifth inning.
Addie Crowell led off with a solo homerun and then later in the inning Lauren Granger hit a three-run shot.
Minnetonka took advantage of shaky Hopkins defense late in the game to score three runs before their rally fell short.
The win gives Hopkins a sweep of their rivals this season.
The Royals added a win over St. Michael-Albertville Saturday.
