Laurence Pump Wins Rockaway Little League Opener
The Laurence Pump Major Girls Softball team opened their 2006 season to a flying start with a 18-1 victory over Flynn and Flynn on Sunday, April 30.
The girls proved themselves ready and well rested for their 8:45 a.m. season opener by playing a terrific game both offensively and defensively. Game highlights included two-3 run homers in the third and fourth inning by Pauline O'Shea, the team's catcher and Mary Ameruso's 2 RBI single in the fourth.
Defensively, Pitcher Catherine "Cat" Murphy walked only three and struck out five batters in five inning of work.
First baseman Annette Scott was a defensive wizard demonstrating a true-mitt and the art of a superb stretch. All of the girls including Flynn and Flynn played with tremendous heart and hopefully they will continue that the rest of the season.
