It was more than enough.

It was the same scoreline but with the halves reversed against Waterloo Columbus, with the Knights’ Evan Boldt scoring a goal in the 50th minute and Roberto Medrano following soon after with a goal in the 52nd for another 2-0 win.

The rocks are swept away: Rock Island picked up a pair of 6-1 victories on Saturday, beating Eastland and Dixon.

Against Eastland, the Rocks gave up a first-inning run, only two tying the game late in the frame and gradually extending the lead from there, scoring in five of seven frames.

It was a similar story in the game against Dixon. Sydney Quinones led the offense with three hits and scored one run. Leadoff batter Taylor Pannell also reached base three times, including a double, scoring twice and driving in a run. Pannell also joined Alexis Carroll in stealing two bases.

Campbell Kelley singled, doubled and walked for the Rocks.

Meanwhile, Delia Schwartz was making the duchesses work for everything they had. Schwartz struck out nine without walking as part of the game’s comprehensive victory.

The one run Dixon got from Schwartz was unearned.
