    Riverside’s trip to Myrtle Beach kicked off with a 13-5 win over the South County Stallions out of Lorton, Va., on Monday.

    The Beavers scored three runs in the top of the third to erase a 1-0 deficit then added four more in the fourth and sixth innings and closed out the game with two more in the seventh.

    “I thought the girls played well,” said Riverside coach Bill Ross. “It took us a couple of innings to really get going but I thought once the bats started going, I thought the girls played really well.”

    Clara Granchi kept the Beavers in the game as she allowed five runs on 13 hits and struck out 12.

    “That South County team we were playing was tough and they swung the bats well,” Ross said. “I thought she did great with 12 strikeouts and the defense played well behind her today.”

    Freshman Maddy Kevern made the most of her high school debut.

    She went 3-for-4 with four runs scored and four runs batted in.

    Her second-inning RBI triple gave Riverside a 2-1 lead and she hit a two-run homer in the fourth that pushed the Beaver lead to 7-3.

    “It’s interesting because those fences were 225 (feet from home plate) and they were eight-foot fences,” Ross said of Kevern’s blast. It was an absolute monster shot. It was fun to see her get her first one and we’re excited to see what she’s going to do.”

    Annaliese Davis and Olivia Powell both recorded two hits in the win with Davis also knocking in two runs.

    Emi Jeras, Kevern, and Becca Tornow each tripled in the win.

    The Beavers collected 13 hits as a team.

    Riverside is scheduled for two games on Tuesday with the first at 8:00 a.m. against Greenbrier East out of West Virginia and the second at noon against Lake Braddock out of Burke, Va.
