WHS SOFTBALL: Wildcats Get Win #12 Of The Season, Defeat Lowell Catholic In Nail-Biter

WILMINGTON, MA — The Wilmington High School Varsity Softball team (12-5) defeated Lowell Catholic by a score of 1-0 on Friday, May 24, 2019.

Both team’s pitchers threw three hitters and had great defense behind them. Neither team could put forth serious threats.

In the top of the first inning, Ashley Crawford doubled. She advanced to third and eventually scored on passed balls.

Chase Andersen made two excellent plays at third base and was a vital part of a combination play in the bottom of the sixth that helped to preserve the victory. With two outs, Lowell Catholic’s number two hitter doubled to left field and was awarded third on an obstruction call. With the third hitter at the plate, she attempted a steal of home, but was erased on a 2-5-3 play. Ashley Crawford received the pitch from Ally Moran and she chased the runner back to third before throwing the ball back to third basemen Chase Andersen. Andersen forced the runner back towards home plate and threw to first basemen Bella Kieran covering the plate for the third out of the inning.

Ally Moran retired the side in order in the seventh for another shutout victory for the Wildcats.
