A new day made a world of difference for the Xavier softball team Wednesday.
The Saints were drubbed by Jefferson, 17-4, in the first game of their Mississippi Valley Conference doubleheader that began Tuesday night, but they rebounded for a 6-3 victory over the J-Hawks Wednesday in the rain-delayed twin-bill at Xavier.
Charlotte Richards and Steph Wehr belted home runs and had three RBIs for Xavier in the 6-3 victory. Keera Ball and Wehr had two hits and Ball scored two runs.
Maria Steffen tossed six shutout innings for the Saints before Jefferson rallied for three runs in the seventh inning.
Xavier raised its records to 2-5 overall and 1-5 in the MVC. Jefferson, which is ranked No 5 in Class 5A, fell to 4-2 overall and 4-2 in the league.
