innings. St. Francis Prep put away the contest with an eight run third inning.
Nicole Diehm, Nicole Bifulco and Krystal Hoffman put together three straight hits which upped the Terriers lead to 8-0 in the third inning.
Head coach Jim DeAngelo can only shake his head as the Lady Flippers were mercied for the first time this season. Luckily for Stella Maris, softball is unlike football, where instead of playing once a week, they could play another game two days later against St. John's Prep and try to get over their huge loss.
Caitlin Garofalo got the nod on the mound and was outstanding in pitching five no hit innings and inspired Stella Maris to a 12-1 win.
"She was throwing awesome. She had good command of the ball," DeAngelo said.
For the Flippers to have a chance to make the CHSSA Brooklyn/Queens championship, they must defeat the upper echelon teams. Today at 3:45 p.m. at Fort Tilden, Molloy is one of those challengers at the top of the division who Stella Maris have lost twice to this season.
