SUMMIT, NJ - Aided by three home runs, the Summit varsity softball team came from behind to beat Dover High School, 13-3, at Memorial Park on Monday.

The Hilltoppers improved to a perfect 5-0 on the year, with four of the wins coming by 10 or more runs.

Summit trailed in the top of the first inning when two errors led to three unearned runs for the Tigers.

After being set down in order in the bottom of the first, Summit's offensive destruction of Dover began in the second when California-transfer student Kicca Fabricant blasted a solo home run to deep left field.

"I just felt it," Fabricant said. "It went really far and I was really happy about it. We needed it to get our intensity up."

Fabricant's bomb cut the lead to 3-1, which remained the score until Summit stepped to the plate in the bottom of the fourth. Junior Kyla Houston opened the frame with a round-tripper to deep center field.

After Fabricant walked and senior Lisa Campenelli reached on a walk, the Hilltoppers added two more runs to take the lead on a passed ball and a fielder's choice ground out from Joanna Scott.

"They started off slow with the bats," head coach Rachel Killeen said. "Then right away they got it going. Kicca, I think, woke up our whole team. Then one after another we had Kayla and Kyla. We have some hitters this year."

Summit added nine more runs in the bottom of the fifth, as the first seven Hilltoppers to bat reached base and scored in the inning.

Summit pitcher Kayla Hoesly helped herself by launching a three-run home run over the head of Dover's center fielder which ended the game on a 10-run mercy.

On the mound, Hoesly allowed only the three first inning runs, all of which were unearned.

The Hilltoppers return to the field tomorrow when they play at Benedictine.

Extra Time

It was close to 70 minutes into the match and I had to go to the bathroom.  Badly.

As fans watching the World Cup know too well, bathroom breaks are a serious dilemma, especially for those who don’t have a TV in the loo.  This biological necessity is exasperated by beer, which during World Cup matches also fuels a strong propensity to throw chairs and instigate riots.
