Monday's area roundup: Peabody's Wilson tosses perfect game

SOFTBALL

Junior ace Shelbi Wilson threw a perfect game against Gloucester in yesterday’s 9-0 victory for the Tanners (5-2). Wilson struck out eight batters, while the defense behind her was stellar.

”She’s been getting stronger as the season has gone on,” said Peabody head coach Butch Melanaphy. “She was on. Shelbi threw very few pitches and the innings were quick. Gloucester put the ball in play a few times, but the girls played great behind her.

”I don’t think she knew what she did because after the game I told her and her mouth dropped.”

Dana Collins went 3-for-4 with three RBI, Wilson finished 2-for-3 with a pair of RBI, Senior captain Nicole Grafton went 2-for-2 and Ashley Jenkins finished the day 3-for-4.

Masconomet 9, Amesbury 5: Emily Dow got her fifth victory on the hill, allowed two walks and struck out five batters as the Chieftains improve to 5-2. Senior captain Alex Mendelsohn and senior second baseman Margaret Maysek both went 3-for-4 with three RBI each. Defensively, junior Caroline Shamon played excellent in the outfield, making several key catches.

North Shore Tech/Essex Aggie 10, Notre Dame Academy 3: Kaylyn Countie got the win for the Hawks (4-1) going four innings while Rhiannon Lane tossed the final three innings. Kasey Harris (two hits, two RBI), Courtney Remson (three hits), Christine Cafiso (one hit, one RBI) and Sabrina Napoli (one hit, one RBI).

Winthrop 11, Beverly 3: Caitlyn Munzing had a two run double and Ally Cabral also drove in a run but the Panthers dipped to 2-4 on the season.

Marblehead 3, Lynn English 1: Senior Michaela Leblanc tossed a 3-hitter and didn’t walk a batter as the Magicians improved to 6-5. Montana Joyce went 1-for-3 with an RBI while Sarah Bornstein, Alison Kaploll and Olivia Vener scored runs. Ashley Stiles had a sacrifice RBI and McKenna Barrett also went 1-for-3.
