She’ll likely have cake and a nice birthday dinner for her 18th birthday.

As for fireworks? 

Well, Kelsey Impink made sure to provide some.

Impink registered her 100th hit in a 4-for-4 effort as the Vikings eased past Boyertown, 13-2, on the third baseman’s birthday Friday afternoon.

Impink finished with a double and a tape-measure home run (PV head coach Dan McLaughlin said he may have to measure it because no one is certain just how deep PV’s fence is) to go along with her three-RBI night. The senior reached 100 hits, joining fellow teammate Ana Bruni in the 100-hit club, and now has 102 for her career.

“This was certainly a birthday to remember,” Impink said. “Our team bounced back nicely from a tough loss on Wednesday (2-1 to Pottsgrove). It gave us a little reality check. It was fun to have a nice team win on my 18th birthday. Also hitting my 100th hit was certainly an accomplishment.”

Bruni, Rachel Helverson and Abby Wild also had big games in the mercy-rule victory, each connecting for two hits. Helverson and Wild (triple) finished with three RBI apiece as the Vikings used a 10-run barrage in the third and fourth to pull away with the win.

Emily Oltman got the win in the circle, allowing four hits while striking out six. Haley Streeper tripled in the win.

Pottsgrove 3, Phoenixville 0 >> Kira Livezey and Jules Dinnocenti connected for RBI doubles as the Falcons maintained their hot start with a victory over the host Phantoms.

Livezey’s two-RBI double was the difference maker and provided enough cushion for Gabi Ermish, who was her usual self in the circle. Ermish finished with three strikeouts while scattering six hits in a complete-game effort.

Jess Eldridge took the loss for Phoenixville, throwing seven innings while striking out three. 

Upper Perkiomen 16, Pottstown 0 >> The Indians scored six runs in the first followed by an eight-run second and two-run third to take the three-inning victory.

Taylor Lindsay, Gail Kooser and Kourtne Buck each finished with two RBI apiece in the victory. Lindsay got the win in the circle, striking out three while allowing one hit.

Laura Frank finished with two runs and two hits. Karlee Fretz also scored two runs. 

Spring-Ford 8, Pope John Paul II 3 >> Spring-Ford climbed into a tie for first place in the PAC-10 with a victory over the Golden Panthers.
