BMCHS Girls Softball dominates against Central:
Spring Hill, Florida
GAME REVIEW: On Thursday night the Bishop McLaughlin Softball team continued their early-season success as they faced off against Central High School (1-8). The Canes ended the night early as they run-ruled Central after the 5th inning, 12-0. This was great news for the fans and players as they get to enjoy an early start to their 5 day weekend.
The girls came to play; the team’s fielding was on point not only in the first inning but throughout the entire night. Key plays from shortstop Sarah Perciavalle and centerfielder Nina Vaughn kept Central’s offense under control. Anna Powers and Kelly Hall also kept the game under control by pitching a shutout. A great two-run double by senior Kelly Hall gave Bishop the early lead, this was immediately followed by a single from Martha Plazewski who was then brought in by Kendall Marriett. Bishop got out to an early 3-0 lead and never looked back. The momentum for the offense continued to build as the team continued to get hit after hit, this lead to a triple by Kendall Marriett who combined for a total of 4 RBIs. The game was coming to an end quickly as Bishop grew it’s lead to 11-0 after three innings. The girls could not be stopped as they tacked on one more run and ultimately finished the game in dominant fashion. Coach Amber stated that the team played together as a team and they were able to hit very well and they were aggressive. The girls look to continue their strong start to the season.
PLAYER OF THE GAME: Coach Amber awarded tonight’s Player of the Game to senior Kendall Marriett. Kendall went 3-3 with 4 RBIs. She also played a great defensive game at first base by making good plays and picks.
