Christina Bascara's single down the right-field line ended the offensive drought and handed Pennsbury a 1-0, nine-inning win over Neshaminy in a pitching-dominated Suburban One League softball game Tuesday.
Pennsbury's Val Buehler posted the win with nine shutout innings, a pair of hits allowed, 10 strikeouts, and two walks. Lauren Quense's stat line mirrored Buehler as she went the distance, walked two, yielded two hits, and fanned 10, but she allowed the late run.
Mackenzie Obert singled to lead off the ninth and scored on Bascara's hit.
Friends Schools. Grace Finkbiner scored the tying run in the seventh inning and drove home the winning run in the eighth as host Friends Select topped Abington Friends, 7-6.
Finkbiner singled home Alex White in the eighth for the win. In the seventh, she knocked home Liz Hawkes before she scored the tying run on a single by Kate Feske-Kirby.
Bicentennial. Maddie Clemens went 2 for 4 and Megan Bolton drove in three runs as Christopher Dock topped Morrisville, 10-5. Katherine Brown hit a grand slam in the seventh for Morrisville.
Catholic. Junior righthander Trish Conolly recorded her first no-hitter, and Archbishop Carroll blanked visiting Hallahan, 10-0. She struck out four in the five-inning game.
Senior Shannon DeFusco went 2 for 3 and homered for her ninth extra-base hit in the last five games.
Public. Shaina Estes drove in five runs, including a three-run homer in the fourth, as Swenson cruised at Parkway West, 15-4.
Inter-Ac. Junior shortstop Lauren Fortunato went 4 for 4 and scored three times to help Agnes Irwin roll at Springside, 11-4. Taylor Lord went 4 for 5 and drove in four runs, including a solo homer in the sixth.
Del-Val. Olivia Incarnacion and Miranda Baylor hit back-to-back homers in the third to trigger Interboro's easy 11-1 win over visiting Penn Wood. Incarnacion also posted the win with four strikeouts.
