MONTVILLE, NJ -A day after an emotional extra inning win over Morristown, the Montville offense struggled, but they scratched across a run in the 5th to defeat Randolph 1-0 on Thursday, April 30.

This game was dominated by pitching from the start and it led to the game ending in only 1 hour and 10 minutes. Kristie Monaco was the starting pitcher for the Montville Lady Mustangs and she was terrific, pitching the first 5 innings allowing only 1 hit and picking up a victory. Sammie Booth came in relief of Monaco and pitched 2 perfect innings to earn the save.

Randolph failed to get a rally going to threaten the scoreboard, but held their own defensively for most of the game. Randolph pitcher Kristen Lindquist was terrific on the mound; pitching a complete game while allowing 1 run on 6 hits in the loss. Her teammates failed to help her as Cindy Menriger was the only Randolph player to record a hit. In fact, the Rams only had 3 baserunners the entire game and they all came in separate innings. Aside from the 1 hit, Amanda Beatrice reached via a walk in the 1st, and Kristen Lindquist reached on an error in the 2nd.

In the 5th inning, Montville finally broke the scoreless tie after an infield single by Christina Kaminskij, then after she advanced to second on a wild pitch, Madison Hill reached on an error. After a pop out by Booth, Cayleigh Aslanian grounded into a fielder’s choice that forced Hill out at second but scored the run. Aslanian wound up with the only RBI of the game.

Coach John Immediato talked about how it took his team “a little while to get going.” He also spoke about how they finally scratched a run across in the bottom of the 5th. He was very pleased at the performances of Kristie Monaco and Sammie Booth on the mound, speaking of how they got ahead in the count and threw strikes. He spoke about how the team was riding high after a big extra inning win over Morristown 7-4, with Jordan Strickland hitting a game winning home run in the 9th inning.

Kristie Monaco talked about her performance saying how she treats each hitter the same and has a game plan going into the game on what she’s going to throw. She was happy about how well the defense played behind her. Sammie Booth knew they had some very good hitters and she knew when she came in to pitch that she had to pitch them carefully. She thinks the team is coming together at the right time as she says “they play well together” and they “get the timely hits when needed.”
