Bruins blast Warriors

LIZTON — Between the weather and spring break vacations, local softball teams have not been getting in many games.

However, the lack of playing time did not affect the Bruins last night as they throttled the visiting Warriors in five innings, 25-1.

“They hit the ball better than I could have ever expected to start off the season this way,” Tri-West coach Stacey Rogers said. “I told them, we still have to keep moving up.”

The Bruins produced both from the mound and the plate with stellar performances from a pair of sophomores.

Tri-West’s Claire Johnson accomplished one of the game’s rarest feats as she hit for the cycle with a single, double, triple and inside-the-park-homerun. She also added on another inside-the-park-homer for good measure, going 5 for 5 on the day.

“I just got up there and tried my best,” Johnson said. “Everyone tells me to swing for the fence and do your best, but I just went up there to get on base because that’s the goal.”

In five innings of play, the Bruins’ Marita VanDyke threw 13 strikeouts with a performance that certainly caught the eye of Rogers and Covenant’s batters.

“Marita is an unbelievable pitcher and her ball moves like crazy,” Rogers said. “We had an opportunity to let her move that ball all around and see what she could do.”

The Bruins’ Kari Sellers also had an outstanding night from the batters box as she went 4 for 4 with two triples, a double and a single. Taylor Baggett recorded a triple and two singles.

Every Tri-West starter scored at least one run.

Covenant Christian gave up a slew of runs (8) in the opening inning but got one back in the top of the second.

An error by the Bruins on a ground ball hit by the Warriors’ Gracia Baifembi with two runners on brought Madison Moes across the plate for Covenant’s only run of the game.
