FARMINGTON – The Farmington softball team quickly made amends for a rough start to District 2-5A action, crushing West Mesa 11-1 for its first district win today at Ricketts Softball Complex.
Despite not doing damage with runners on base during the first inning, Ulysse Morales drove in two runs with a deep shot to left field to open a five-run outburst in the second inning.
From there, the Lady Scorpions seized control.
FHS tacked on six more runs, including a game-ending solo home run by Morales.
