SPRINGFIELD, NJ – Jonathan Dayton softball team turned in one of their most complete games of the season and beat David Brearley Bears 7-1. The Bulldogs are now 6-2 on the season and 3-2 in their league, UCC - Mountain .
Coach Pamela De La Llave said, “We were very aggressive at the plate and solid in the field. When you have both of those things happening at the same time, it’s hard to lose. The girls looked great.”
The coach said the team’s pitcher, “Arianna is doing a phenomenal job for us on the mound.” In fact, senior Arianna DeMartino pitched a complete seven inning game and allowed only one run on just four hits. She struck out five and gave up just one walk.
At the plate, the entire team contributed. Senior catcher Karly Fitzpatrick was one for three and knocked in three runs in the four run fifth inning breaking the game wide open. Junior Holly Wilson was one for three and knocked in two runs. DeMartino helped her cause going two for three and knocking in a run.
First baseman sophomore Maggie Phillips scored the first run after hitting a triple. Senior center fielder Marinna Kwinta was also one for four and scored a run. Juniors Angelina Capiocco in left field and Amanda Lau at shortstop were both one of three. Junior third baseman Sophia Ritter and freshman right fielder Victoria Delia were both hitless in two at bats, but both also drew walks and Delia scored a run.
The Bulldogs travel to Roselle Park Wednesday and return home to face Oak Knoll School on Monday. The first round of the Union County Tournament is Thursday.
