The Rogers softball season ended with a 1-0 loss to St. Michael-Albertville on Monday in the first round of Section 5AAA at Rice Creek Park in Shoreview.
Torey Malerich of STMA and Christina Hajder of Rogers each threw a four-hitter. STMA scored on the bottom of the seventh when Rachel Mills singled with one out to score Malerich from third base.
Rogers finished 7-14. The Royals and Hajder had three 1-0 losses.
“We definitely had our chances, leaving runners on base a few teams,” said coach Dan Ohlgren. “Hajder pitched real well and kept STMA at bay most of the game.”
Hajder struck out six. An error in the seventh helped STMA score an unearned run.
