Westfield 8 Middletown North 6 (11 innings)
The Blue Devils hit four home runs and pounded out 11 hits to reach 9-0 and an upset win over a Lions squad that has spent most of the season ranked in the top five of the state polls. Freshman Kalea Culagay hit a two run homer in the seventh inning to tie the game at four and force extra innings. In the 10th, Julia Romano hit her second blast of the game to give Westfield a 6-4 advantage, but Middletown North rallied for two runs in the bottom of the frame to keep the marathon going. Westfield was able to persevere scoring on an error and sacrifice fly in the 11th to get its biggest win to date. Lions pitcher Malori Bell had a staggering 19 strikeouts in a losing effort.
