Bill Iezzi: Gloucester Catholic Softball

Gloucester Catholic made a powerful statement in the Rancocas Valley Softball Tournament Saturday.

The Rams' clutch hitting in the first two rounds said they are the team to beat in South Jersey.

Colleen O'Donnell smashed a two-run triple to snap a 2-2 tie with Williamstown in the bottom of the sixth for a 4-2 lead. The Rams won, 4-3.

Gloucester Catholic was trailing Cherokee, 5-2, in the top of the seventh when the Rams erupted for five runs and a 7-5 victory in the second game.

GC coach Joe Matranga said the Rams are a good hitting team, one through nine, and he wasn't exaggerating.

The Rams are scheduled to play Hammonton Sunday at 1 p.m. in a semifinal. The championship game is at 2:30 p.m.
