WILMINGTON, MA — The Wilmington High School Varsity Softball team (10-7) defeated Winchester by a score of 9-1 on Wednesday, May 23 in Wilmington on Senior Night. With this victory, the team qualified for postseason play .
Ally Moran pitched a one hitter (no hitter broken up in the top of the seventh) and had 12 strikeouts in the win.
Wilmington scored three runs in the second with 2 hits (Ryan Bailey and Emily Wright) squeezed in between 3 Winchester errors.
In the third inning, the Wildcats scored three again with some great hitting from Adele Burton (single), Liz Gordon (single), and Ryan Bailey (double).
In the fifth inning, Dana Goulet smacked a triple. Antonia Kieran launched a ball to deep right field that would have been a home run in most parts, but, at town park, it went for a sacrifice fly and an RBI.
All was not perfect for Wilmington, however. There was a collision between center fielder Kacie Bourrell and shortstop Dana Goulet. Kacie made a great catch, but both were injured on the play.
