First Win in the Books

After a tough start to the season, the talented Durfee softball team finally got to show off their talents at Somerset Berkley this past Wednesday. The girls got on the bus determined and ready to get not only their first away win, but their first win of the season. 

Starting pitcher Tara McCann had an almost perfect game, only allowing two hits within the five innings. With pitching like that, it was hard for the Durfee girls not to counterattack at the plate. After having only one run in the prior three games, the girls knew it was their time to step up. That's just what they did. McCann and senior Mackenzie Crumley both had back to back RBI singles in the fourth and put the girls ahead 6-1. 

 

On defense, it looked like Durfee was trying to earn their spot in ESPN's Top 10 Plays. They made no errors and had many notable plays throughout the game. Center fielder Alexa Garant made a running catch to end Somerset's attempt to get back in the game during the bottom of the fourth. Danai Boone also had her part in holding the team together by catching two low throws at first base in the sixth and seventh innings. 

 

It was certainly a team effort by the Durfee girls. They finished the game with a 9-3 win and a happy bus ride home, the first of many.
