Allied Softball Takes on the Centennial Girls’ Varsity Team

Words: Ashley Berry

At 3:00pm on Wednesday, April 8, the Centennial allied softball team was primed to take on the Marriot’s Ridge Mustangs. Due to transportation issues, the Mustangs never made it to Centennial. Rather than send the allied team home, the Centennial girls’ varsity softball team stepped up to the plate for an in-house scrimmage.

The allied team was off to a great start with five runs in the first inning. Michael Clark ran from second base to home plate off a solid hit by Dominic Roybal, scoring the first run of the game. Roybal and Michael McCarthy were both on base when Orkun Unal hit a ball to the back wall, giving both a chance to run home. Both Unal and Jonathan Hanks had successful at-bats and were on base when Thompson Truong had a nice hit which brought both of them home.

Jordan Ciraolo, Sammy Kastner, and Tori Montanez were quickly retired by Matthew Na and Clark, ending the first inning with a score of 5-0.

Clark scored again in the second inning, making the score 6-0. At the bottom of the second inning, three players from the Centennial boys’ varsity team, Connor Clemens, Matt McShane and Robert Hunter, joined forces with the allied team. Despite a run scored by Caroline Strott of the girls’ team, the allied team didn’t back down. Clark was responsible for three outs at the plate off of throws from Hanks and Clemens, ending the second inning with a score of 6-1.

Michael Havlik, McCarthy and Clark each had amazing hits in the third and final inning, and Unal scored his second run. Montanez scored a second run for the girls off a hit by Kastner in the bottom of the third inning. That would be their final run. Both Strott and Ciraolo found themselves out at the hands of Havlik and Celina Jensen was thrown out at first base on a nice play between Clark and Havlik, ending the game with a score of 7-2.

Allied softball’s peer helpers, Sakena Redmond, Anna Crowe and Frankie Krzyzanowski, and coaches, Coach Frost, Ms. Seen, Mr. Young and Ms. Dodd, helped the team take this win.

Allied Softball’s next game will be Tuesday, April 18 at 3:00 at Glenelg.
