Dover Rotary Wins Division Championship Title
The top-seeded Dover Rotary girls softball team captured the Dover Youth Softball League’s 10U Division championship with a hard-fought, 7-5 win over Collins Sports Center at Shaw’s Lane in Dover on June 20, finishing the season with an impressive 13-1 record.
Mariah Ouellette started on the mound for Rotary and pitched two solid innings before being relieved by Charlotte Wensley, who closed out the game with two scoreless innings of her own. Addie Sheehan and Hannah Fitzgerald pitched admirably for Collins in the loss, combining to hold the potent Rotary lineup in check and keep the game within reach.
Rotary’s Jordyn March provided the game’s pivotal offensive blow, plating Sasha Elly with the eventual winning run with a two-out line drive single to right in the bottom of the second inning to break a 5-5 deadlock. Collins’ catcher, Sophia Cedrone, tagged out Rotary’s Ella Wasserman at the plate to end the inning and prevent further damage, thanks to a perfect relay throw by Sheehan.
Rotary added a lone insurance run in the third to pull ahead 7-5, and the scoring ended there as Collins’ fourth-inning threat fell just short. (Fosters)
