Game Summary

Ethel Walker hosted Suffield Academy in a tremendous game on Thursday afternoon. After trailing early in the game, Walker’s came back to tie it and Ava Hampton ’22 singled home the winning run with 2 outs in the bottom of the 9th to beat a very strong Suffield team. Suffield got on the board first, scoring 1 in the top of the 1st before Walker’s rallied back for 2 of their own in the bottom half. Walker’s carried the 2-1 lead through a scoreless 2nd before Suffield scored 4 in the top of the 3rd, jumping out to a 5-2 lead. In the bottom half, Walker’s came back once again, as Sara Fallon ’19 hit a towering 2-run home run to bring the Wildcats back within a run. Both teams added a run in the 4th inning, and Suffield scored again in the top of the 6th to take a 7-5 lead. Walker’s scored 2 in the bottom half, as Reagan Kerecz ’20 hit a clutch RBI single and Cecelia Petrarca ’19 scored on a past ball to tie the game at 7. Neither team scored in the 7th or 8th inning, and Sydney Longley ’17 pitched out of a bases loaded 1-out jam in the top of the 9th to get to the bottom of the inning. After the first two batters of the inning made outs, Jenna Murray ’20 was hit by a pitch and Fallon walked. Hampton followed with the walk-off single to right field. Longley pitched all 9 innings, striking out 10 in a gutsy effort on the mound. Walker’s improves to 5-0 on the season, and heads into the long weekend having played two great games over two days.
