Softball team powers past Williams
A 17 hit attack and solid pitching gave the Winthrop High softball team, sporting the new uniforms recently provided with funds from the Viking Pride Foundation, a 16-6 win over Archbishop Williams Tuesday in the consolation game of a vacation tournament hosted by Winthrop.
Abby Belcher wielded the heavy bat for the Lady Vikings in the onslaught. Abby went five for five with three doubles, two RBI, and three runs scored. Haley Benson also enjoyed a banner day at the plate with three hits, an RBI, and four runs scored.
Another notable offensive display was turned in by Taylor Brown, who reached base in all five of her trips to the plate with two doubles, four RBI, and two runs scored.
In the pitching department, Elaine Lanza went five innings allowing just six hits and one earned run. Alex Feri wrapped up the final two frames and yielded just two hits.
The Lady Vikings, who now stand at 2-2 on the season, were scheduled to host Gloucester yesterday (Wednesday) and then will travel to Danvers Friday morning. They will stay on the road to Swampscott on Monday and to Saugus on Wednesday.
