Ethel Walker hosted fellow all-girls school Westover this afternoon on a beautiful spring day. Walker’s got off to a great start, scoring 2 in the first and 7 in the second to take a 9-0 lead over the visitors.
In the top of the 3rd, Walker’s struggled defensively and allowed 4 unearned runs, giving Westover a chance to get back in the game. Once again in the top of the 4th, Walker’s errors gave Westover chances and they capitalized, scoring two more to make it a 9-6 game.
After a scoreless bottom of the 4th and top of the 5th, Walker’s tacked on 2 more runs in the bottom of the 5th, extending the lead to 11-6. After Westover failed to score in the top of the 6th, Walker’s added 5 more runs on in the bottom of the 6th to end the game 16-6.
Hannah Theriault pitched a great game for Walker’s, pitching around an off-day defensively by Walker’s and limiting Westover’s offensive attack.
Walker’s collected 15 hits on the afternoon. It was highlighted by a triple for Lizzie Strapp ’21 and a two-hit performance by Cecelia Petrarca ’19.
Walker’s moves to 6-0 on the season and looks forward to a match-up at defending Class B Champion Cheshire Academy on Friday.
