The 12U softball team, comprised of 10 to 12-year olds, played their last home game, against Portland, on Sunday, October 20.
Portland scored one run in the first, and Windham answered back with a slug fest. Chloe Edwards,#6, got a double. After Taylor Bernier, #2, got hit by the pitch, #7 Lacie Higgins bunted and got on base, Edwards scored.
Alayna Baldwin-Dagnese, #1, got hit by the pitch and now the bases were loaded. Bernier scored after Rachelle Cloutier, #3, got hit by the pitch. Caitlyn Marsh, #11, got a base hit and Baldwin-Dagnese and Bernier made it to home plate.
5-1, Lady Eagles.
Windham’s defense was sound as more than once the inning ended with Portland runners on base.
In the fourth, Edwards doubled and scored. Fast forward to the sixth inning where Portland had started to make a comeback, but Windham put a stop to it and took the game, final: 9-6.
“This year we’ve expanded [fall ball participation] and it’s been a pretty good success overall.
There’s been a lot of versatility with learning different positions and creating a good experience for the kids,” replied coach Ron Higgins. “Coaches Ryan Edwards and Shawn Leger bring knowledge, experience and a positive vibe to the group. This has been the second year for Windham with Fall softball and it seems to be a hit!”
