BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ - Madison Phillips struck out 10, walked none and allowed four hits in Gov. Livingston's7-1 softball victory over Scotch Plains-Fanwood on Saturday in the first round of the Union County Tournament.
"We were very confident coming into this game, maybe a little too confident," said Grace Sanzalone of Gov. Livingston. "Throughout the game, we came out stronger and started hitting, as we should. We need to work on closing. Not making errors when we need to make outs."
Sanzalone went 2-for-2 with a double and run scored and Carolynne Goldbeck went 2-for-3 with an RBI and two runs scored to lead third-seeded Governor Livingston. Kacie Worswick, Taylor Hendrzak, Hayley Berliner and Phillips each also had one RBI.
Maria Pansulla, Mary Coloney, Julia DiGiacomo and Amanda Marcus each had a hit for Scotch Plains.
"Everyone did their part. Overall it was a team effort, we played well," said Sanzalone.
