The Bishop Fenwick softball team fought back to erase an early deficit, let a lead slip away in the seventh, and won in extra innings. Overall, it was a pretty eventful game for the Crusaders.
Junior catcher Gabby Hart smashed a two-run homer in the ninth inning to lift Fenwick to its first win of the year, an 11-9 decision over Matignon.
Fenwick (1-2) fell behind by three runs early, but ended up scoring four times in the top of the seventh inning to take a 9-6 lead. Freshman first baseman Mikayla Porcaro hit a two-run single and junior Brianna Hemeon hit a pinch-hit, two-run double in the seventh for Fenwick.
Matignon plated three runs in the bottom of the seventh to force extra innings.
”We had 15 hits and hit the ball pretty well. We still left 16 players on base, despite scoring 11 runs. We left people all over the place,” Fenwick coach Paul Lyman said. “We still made it interesting.”
Katie O’Brien had three hits while Porcaro, Hart and Gianna Pizzano (2-3, 2 RBI) each had two hits.
Danvers 15, Winthrop 2: Kendall Meehan allowed four hits and two earned runs to lead Danvers (3-0) to victory. Madison Mucci went 3 for 4 with 5 RBI and Tori Costa added two hits, including a two-run homer in the third. Hannah Llewellyn had four hits for the winners.
Masconomet 8, Rockport 6: Emily Dow picked up her second pitching win of the season and helped her own cause by blasting a three-run homer. The Chieftains (2-1) scored two runs in the top of the seventh to break a tie game. Sophomore Carly Currier singled to lead off the seventh and eventually scored the winning run.
Senior captains Julianna Kostas and Maddie Kelly each had two hits for Masco.
Peabody 3, Triton 1: The Tanners moved to 2-1 after Shelby Wilson scattered five hits and struck out seven in a win over Triton. Domenic DelBene went 2 for 3 with an RBI and Taylor Dabney added one hit and an RBI.
