Taunton rolls over Bishop Feehan in softball
Leading, 2-1, in the bottom of the fourth inning, the third-ranked Taunton softball team (10-1) got consecutive RBI hits from senior captains Jaime Brown and Alexa White to stretch their lead in a 7-2 win over fifth-ranked Bishop Feehan in a rematch of last year’s Division 1 South sectional semifinal.
Brown slugged a two-run double to plate a pair of runs and scored on White’s single a batter late. White added two more RBIs on a sixth-inning double, finishing the night with three hits.
“This was a tournament-style game,” said Taunton coach Dave Lewry. “We came out, put pressure on them, their pitcher had us off balance, but we hung in and got a couple of breaks. I wouldn’t be surprised if we meet again.”
The Tigers got around early on Shamrocks pitcher Jess Levesque. Sophomore McKenzie McAloon cracked her first career home run, a solo shot, to give Taunton a lead. She knocked in another run on a third-inning sacrifice fly.
“She’s been working on things offensively and it has started coming together,” said Lewry. “This was a big game for her and shows her hard work is paying off.”
In the circle, Taunton sophomore Kelsey White went the distance, scattering four hits and fanning nine. She met trouble in the seventh, loading the bases with no outs, but worked out of it allowing just one run.
“Kelsey really is mentally tough,” said Lewry. “She’s a great pitcher who throws her best pitches in tough situations.”
