Riverside is now 6-2 on the season.
“It wasn’t the cleanest defensive game that we’ve played,” said Riverside coach Andy Phelps. “We had five errors and two of them caused West Liberty to get back into the game in the seventh inning. But I am proud of the girls for battling the whole game and overcoming the mistakes to take a big win.”
