Holly Mariano broke for home as soon as the ball skipped past the catcher, her instincts so sharp on Saturday afternoon that Ocean City softball coach John Bruno said it seemed like she was determined to end the game right there.

And that’s exactly what she did as the senior catcher scored the walk-off run to lift Ocean City past visiting Mount St. Joseph, 2-1, in a nonleague game.

Before scoring, Mariano reached on a single in the bottom of the seventh and moved to second base on a hit by Malia Hindle. She headed to third on a walk from Lauren Milberry. The Red Raiders do not have much room behind the backstop, putting even more pressure on Mariano as she darted to the plate following the past ball.

“It was a real heads up play,” Bruno said.

Marissa Holt, a junior righty, posted the win with five strikeouts and one walk over seven innings.
