Maddy McBride was bringing the heat Tuesday.
Hallahan’s junior ace — and Sharon Hill resident — fanned 16 batters in a dominant performance against the Catholic League’s top softball squad. McBride allowed only one hit and walked none in leading Hallahan to a 2-0 victory over previously unbeaten Archbishop Wood.
If her pitching wasn’t enough for Wood to handle, McBride also got it done with the bat. She slugged a two-run triple for the only scoring of the afternoon.
