Briana Hart, Alyssa Durante and Victoria Moriarty got on base every time they were up at bat. Jenna Hofmann, Marissa Scotto, and Catherine Murphy made some outstanding defensive plays during this game. Julia Falcone and Kristie Carey each added key hits. At the end of the 2nd Championship game, Rockaway again came away victorious. With this win, Rockaway 9/10 year-old Girls became the 1st team to ever win a District 27 Flag in the history of Rockaway Little League Softball!
Marty Andresen, President of Rockaway Little League, was on hand to congratulate the girls. All of the girls signed the Championship Flag, which will now be displayed proudly in the Rockaway Little League Clubhouse. The girls went on to face the winner of the 9/10 Little League Softball from Staten Island for the NYC Title. Megan LaCognata came back to rejoin the team after vacation. Unfortunately, they lost to the team from Staten Island. But what a great run the girls had!
The girls were coached by Bill Murphy, Dawn Duggan and Barbara King. They also had the benefit of instruction by 3 of Bishop Kearney’s Softball players; Michelle Kenel, Kerry King and Nora Marley.
