BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ - The Governor Livingston softball team faced off against the Livingston Lancers at home and came out with a victory to extend their winning streak to 9, with a score of 5-2.

Alanna Namit was on the mound for the Highlanders and found herself in trouble early in the first inning, giving up two runs. Namit quickly settled in, taking command in the subsequent innings. She finished with 12 strikeout in the game.

The Highlanders offense did not show signs of life until the fourth inning, where they would score five runs. Alyssa Hammer brought in the first run, with bases loaded and no outs, off a slow roller. Difficult to field, the Lancers allowed Hammer on first, and a run to score. With bases still loaded the Highlanders continued to take advantage.

Katie Debbie went 1-for-3 with an RBI on a double and scored a run; while Madison Phillips was 1-for-3 with two RBI on a double. Jaime Belfer, Nicole Trezza, Katie Hughes, and Christine Pacheco each scored a run for Gov. Livingston.

The Lancers would have an opportunity in the 6th inning. After putting away two batters, Namit found herself in trouble with bases loaded, but the Lancers were unable to capitalize and left three runners stranded.

Next, the Highlanders are scheduled to meet the 4-7 Linden Tigers in the first round of the Union County Tournament on Saturday, April 29 at 10 a.m., at home.
