It took almost a dozen years, but surely it was worth the wait for Roxbury softball.

Senior pitcher Brittany Keator threw the second perfect game in Rockets history Thursday, striking out nine in a five-inning Delaware League rout of visiting Stamford.

"In 30 years, it's the second one I've seen," said Roxbury coach Jane Ware, who coached Tamara Snyder's seven-inning perfect game in May 2000. Snyder struck out 17 Downsville batters in a 12-0 victory that gave her a 9-0 record that season.

Keator improved to 6-0 Thursday, a record that includes one-hitters against South Kortright on Tuesday and against Margaretville on April 5. Roxbury cruised to 24-0 and 8-0 victories, respectively, in those games.

Kendal Sprague had two triples, a single and three RBIs for the Rockets (6-0, 4-0), who are ranked 14th among Class D programs in the state.

Roxbury is at Davenport today.
