The shut-out was not to be, however, as the Raiders rallied in the bottom of the sixth, capitalizing on some misplayed balls and putting four runs on the board.

Junior Lauren Donah led the pitching for the Crusaders through the sixth, when Gianna Randazza came in for the close.

The Crusaders travel to Westfield on Wednesday for a 4 p.m. game. 

Scotch Plains-Fanwood travels to Villa Walsh for a Saturday, 11 a.m. game.
