Ethel Walker traveled to Suffield Academy on Saturday and scored a big 4-1 victory over a strong Suffield team.
Walker’s got the scoring started early by playing small ball. Cecelia Petrarca ’19 was hit by a pitch to lead off the game, and advanced to second on a great bunt by Lizzy Strapp ’21. Reagan Kerecz ’20 followed with a single, and she advanced to second and Petrarca scored on a throwing error by Suffield.
Walker’s added another in the second when Theresa Jo ’18 walked, stole 2nd and scored on two passed balls.
Hannah Theriault ’20 and the Walker’s defense did much of the work from there. Theriault pitched 7 strong innings. While she wasn’t overpowering, she allowed only 4 hits on the afternoon. Theriault walked four and hit one batter while striking out four.
Theriault helped herself in the 6th inning with a laser home run over the left-center field wall.
Walker’s tacked on an insurance run in the 7th when Petrarca again led off the inning by getting on base then advancing to second on an error. Strapp sacrificed her to 3rd, and Kerecz executed a great sac bunt to score Petrarca.
Suffield scored in the bottom of the 7th to make it a 4-1 game.
Walker’s moves to 3-0 on the season and travels to Miss Porters on Monday afternoon.
