St. John Vianney 10 Donovan Catholic 9 (9 innings) | Shore Conference Softball Final

Isabelle Cattelona’s RBI single to right field in the ninth gave Saint John Vianney a dramatic come-from-behind extra innings thriller ending the three-year reign of the Griffins as Shore Conference champs.  SJV raced out to a 5-0 lead before two Donovan Catholic homers helped the Griffins take a 6-5 lead.  Madison McDougall’s solo blast in the fifth tied the game 6-6 setting the stage for extra innings drama.  Christina Ginex gave Donovan Catholic a 9-6 lead in the top of the 8th with a three-run double.  SJV was down to its final out before Gabby Gonzalez launched a dramatic three-run homer to dead center setting the stage for Cattelona’s heroics.
