Donovan Catholic 2 Middletown North 1
The Griffins manufactured runs in the 3rd and 4th inning and Lindsay Nelson went the distance giving up just one run to get to 22-0 on the season. Alex Pagano hit a sacrifice fly to left field in the 3rd inning to score Mya Lamicella and Mikayla LaPlaca hit a hard grounder to 3rd that had Kayla Roncin slide home to beat the throw. In the 6th inning, Middletown North’s Riley Kernan made it a 2-1 game with an RBI double to right center field. The Lions were primed to tie the game, but Lamicella made a diving grab to take a base hit away from Kayla Gallo to get out of the inning. Nelson gave up five hits and struck out eight to improve to 15-0 on the season. Watch the highlights of a fantastic game in our US Army Softball Game of the Week:
