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 third, Baldwin-Dagnese got a base hit, then scored; 7-1, Windham.

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!”
