The Olentangy Berlin softball team scored each of its first five trips to the plate en route to a 9-5 OCC-Cardinal Division win over visiting Olentangy Monday night in Delaware.

The Bears never trailed the rest of the way, tacking on an insurance run in the fourth and two more in the fifth.

Elizabeth Sprecher and Ava Kresak led the way with two RBI apiece while Addelynne Young had two hits, an RBI and a game-best three runs scored.

Alex Newson led Olentangy with two hits — a home run and a double — to go with two runs and three RBI.
