PIKE CREEK – Fifth-seeded Delaware Military Academy used solid pitching and great defense to edge No. 12 Padua, 1-0, in a first-round softball tournament game on May 23 at Midway Softball Complex. Freshmen Delani Sheehan pitched a seven-hitter, and Alexus Novotny drove in the only run for the Seahawks (14-5).

The Pandas started strong in the top of the first inning as Caitlyn Baxter had a leadoff infield single and advanced to third on a Hannah Williams double with no outs. After a pop out, senior Abby Cunningham hit a fly ball to right fielder Ashlee Conaty, who fired home to nail the speedy Baxter and keep the game scoreless.

WILMINGTON – Indira Purnell scattered five hits and struck out nine, and she hit a solo home run, to lead William Penn to a 4-3 win in nonconference softball on May 15 at Canby Park.

A strong wind blew in from right field throughout the day, wreaking havoc on fly balls and resulting in a centerfielder catching one in the infield for an out, but Purnell used it to her advantage leading off the fourth. She sent a shot over the leftfielder’s head, with the wind taking the ball away from the fielder. Purnell never stopped running and easily beat the throw home to put the Colonials ahead, 2-0.

Milford stuns Padua with seventh-inning comeback

By

Dialog reporter

 

PIKE CREEK – Padua took a two-run lead into the seventh inning of its softball game May 4 against Milford, and the Pandas retired the first batter of that final frame. A few runners got on, however, and an error opened the door for the Lady Bucs to score five runs for a 7-4 victory at Midway Softball Complex.

The early innings of the game were ruled by the pitchers, Padua’s Abby Cunningham and Milford’s Morgan Abbott. Cunningham was in trouble just once through five innings. That came in the first, when Rajene Bowe tripled to open the game and Darby Brennan laid down a bunt single, followed by a stolen base, to put runners on second and third with no outs. Read more »

CLAYMONT – Delaware Military Academy broke open a tie game with four runs in the sixth inning and two more in the seventh and took a 10-4 decision at Archmere in Diamond State Athletic Conference softball on April 27 in Claymont.
