Spring-Ford’s Sam Lindsay got it done in the circle and at the dish to lead the Rams past Perkiomen Valley in a rematch of last year’s Pioneer Athletic Conference final, 5-1 in eight innings.
Tied at 1 entering the top half of the eighth, the sophomore belted a grand slam home run to cap off the Rams comeback after they trailed 1-0 entering the seventh inning. Lindsay complemented her big swing with a shutdown effort in the circle, allowing only one hit and one run (zero earned) while striking out two.
Her effort outshined the one of Perkiomen Valley’s Abby Wild, who had allowed just one hit entering the seventh inning. The Rams tied the game after getting their first two runners and then struck for the big eighth inning after the first three Rams reached via two walks and a throwing error to set up Lindsay.
Lindsay finished with two hits in the win. Taylor Hamm had the only hit for PV.
Owen J. Roberts 7, Wilson 5 >> The Wildcats tamed the Bulldogs’ late rally and claimed a non-conference win.
Emily Shaheen finished 3-for-4 with a pair of runs scored while Camryn Glenn finished 2-for-5 with a pair of runs scored and two hits out of the lead-off spot. Madison Twaddell had a triple and a run scored while Brianna Smith had two hits and two RBIs. Brittney Dellaquila scattered five runs (three earned) on 10 hits and no walks. OJR led 6-1 headed in the fifth inning before Wilson nearly pulled even with a four-run bottom half.
Boyertown 9, Brandywine Heights 6 >> Kody Streeter went 3-for-4 with an RBI and two runs scored to lead the Bears past the previously-unbeaten Bullets in non-league play.
Sarah Reinert added a 2-for-4 with two runs scored for Boyertown (7-3).
Villa Maria 5, Pottsgrove 2 >> Villa got all its runs in the sixth inning, enough to handle the Falcons in their non-league game.
Rachel Cherubini and Kira Livezey drove in Pottsgrove’s runs. The locals saw their initial 1-0 lead dashed by Villa’s big at-bat, and they were able to manage just onemore run in the seventh.
