In a back-and-forth game, Broadneck’s softball squad was able to pull away from rival Severna Park to win on the road, 5-3, April 19.
Senior Addi Hurst led the Bruins with four RBIs, including a two-run home run. Allie Weibley hit two doubles, and Abby Favazza and Sam Waters each hit one as well.
Bella Hererra got the Bruins on the board with a RBI in the second inning, driving Favazza home. Malayna Owens made two great plays in right field. In the first inning, she made a diving catch, and then in the sixth inning, she made a putout at first base on a line drive, thwarting a potential Severna Park rally.
Favazza, the team’s catcher, and shortstop Mara Gilkey combined for yet another out at second as a runner tried to steal in the third inning.
In the fourth inning, Herrera snagged a line drive and doubled off the runner at second with a throw to Waters at second base.
Pitcher Hailey Adamson went four innings with five strikeouts and three runs scored. Waters relieved her in the fifth inning, striking out three and allowing no runs.
