WOOD-RIDGE, NJ - Emma Baker slugged two hits and Gianna Roncaicoli added two, but it was not enough as Waldwick defeated Wood-Ridge, 13-5, in girls softball Monday afternoon in the season opener for both teams.

Waldwick’s Sage Rizzi scored in the first inning on a single with two outs to plate the first run of the game off Wood-Ridge starter Brooke Biamonte.  Rizzi would come back to haunt the Lady Blue Devils clearing the bases with a bases-loaded double in the second to give Waldwick a 5-0 lead.

Wood-Ridge scored two in the bottom to get back in the game, with Baker scoring on a steal of home for the first run, and Roncaicoli singling Amanda DiMase for the second run.
