Greenwich High softball smashes Warde to start season 2-0

Just like in their previous game against Wilton High School, the Greenwich High School softball team scored early and often against Fairfield Warde High School yesterday afternoon, coming away with the commanding 15-3 victory.

“Overall it was a great day,” Greenwich High head coach Mary Beth Fratello said. “Offensively the bats were there, everybody contributed, defensively we made the plays when we had to and Alison [Kach] threw the pitches that she had to so she could get out of jams. It was a solid performance.”

Greenwich scored two runs in the first inning, five runs in the second inning and four more in the third to basically ice the victory. Caroline Bennett had a stellar day at the plate, going 4-for-5 with two doubles, two singles, scored three times and picked up five RBIs.

Not to be outdone was Jenny Amborgio, who went a perfect 4-for-4 on the day with four singles. Ebba Mark finished 3-for-5 with three singles, scored once and netted two RBIs. Rebecca Decarlo finished 2-for-5. She crossed the plate three times, netted four RBIs and opened the floodgates by drilling a triple in the third inning.

Erin Ferguson went 2-for-5 with a triple and three RBIs, while Madison Burhans also netted two hits and  two walks. Erin White and Alison Kach also picked up one hit each to round out the team’s offense.

On the mound, Kach was light’s out for Big Red. In five innings of work, Kach gave up three runs and four hits, while striking out three and walking two. Kach’s only mistake on the day was in the second inning, as she gave up a three-run home run. Other than the homer, only one other Fairfield Warde batter was able to touch third base on the day.

“She was on today,” Fratello said. “She gave up those runs early and she was pretty much on. She has had some control issues, but she battled back and got the outs.”

With the victory, Greenwich upped its overall record to 2-0 on the young season.

“It’s really nice to get those wins right off the bat,” Fratello said. “We got to keep on hitting and playing defense. We need to cut down the mental mistakes. We’ve done that the first two games, but we still have a long season to go. We got ti keep rolling.”
