The Laurence vs. Gift of Love game on 06-21-06 had the Laurence bats fired up with each of the ten girls present scoring at least once. Bridget Grogan's "smart at bats" produced 3 hits, a walk, 2 R.B.I.s and she crossed homeplate three times. Mary Ameruso doubled twice, walked once, scored three times and picked up an R.B.I.Pauline O'Shea hit a three run homer and drove in an additional run on one of the two singles.Judith Wanderer sent one sailing deep to left center scoring a two run homer.
Defensively, the girls pulled it together beautifully with a number holding positions other than their usual, and proved themselves to be quite adaptable: Erin as pitcher, Mary Ameruso at 2nd, Lauren Houck at 1st and later in the game, Brittany Lonnborg at 2nd.The 20-2 victory gave Laurence first place with a 9 and 1 season as they head to the playoffs!
