After the game, Coach Pamela de La Flave said, “We were struggling for a while and we definitely lost games that we shouldn’t have.  Coach Rennie and I knew we had to have a quality practice to get out of the funk.  Since then, the girls have been doing much better offensively.  Coach Rennie and I are happy to have some momentum going into the State tournament;”

Dayton’s ten runs came from ten hits during 28 at bats.  Every player got on base at least once and either got a hit, an RBI or both.

Holly Wilson knocked in three runs and right fielder Victoria Delia knocked in two runs.  Others knocking in a run were center fielder Marinna Kwinta, shortstop Amanda Lau, catcher Karly Fitzpatrick and second baseman Arianna DeMartino.

Three players got two hits.  They are Lau, Fitzpatrick and third baseman Sophia Ritter.  The others getting hits were first baseman Maggie Phillips, Wilson, center fielder Angelina Cacioppo and Delia.

Four players stole a base.  They are Phillips, Kwinta, Cacioppo and Delia.

Dayton’s next game is Wednesday at West Orange High School.  On Thursday, Dayton plays its Round one game against Dunellen at Dayton.  Dayton is seeded six and Dunellen is seeded 11.  The winner will play the winner of the Hoboken (#3) Belvidere (#14) game on May 22 in the quarterfinal game.
