Is the below sentence legit?
Her friends' scores pummeled it further for her.
The sentence is okay as long as it means what you mean to say. To pummel means “to beat or thrash with or as with the fists” according to dictionary.com. That’s a pretty active verb for something as inanimate as a score. Of course, I don’t have any context to interpret your meaning. I also don’t know what “it” is referring to. I assume that the reader will understand in context. Perhaps you are describing how beaten down she felt and her friends' scores intensified that feeling.
