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.
