Posted Friday, April 18, 2008 by Sharon Sawler

It took 9 hard fought innings today, but the Wildcats got even with Put Valley winning 7 - 6. Keara Hickey went the distance from the mound striking out 8 and giving up only 6 hits. Great hitting was turned in by Linda Tibaldi going 3 for 5 with a double and triple. Lauren Birkelbach set the tone of the Wildcat's bats with a leadoff triple. Tibaldi's single scored Birkelbach and Maio to give the Wildcats a 2-0 lead in the first. With the score tied in the 5th PV scored 3 to take the lead 2-5. The Wildcats responded in the 6th with a few errors by PV and one of Brophy's 2 hits to score 3 runs to tie it up. Linda Tibaldi leadoff the 7th with a triple and Carolyn D'Ariano had the RBI to score her. The Tigers answered with one run of their own to tie it up. Both teams were held scoreless in the 8th and Andrea Pucarelli reached 2nd in the 9th by an error and Linda Tibaldi hit her in with a double. Fantastic defense in the 9th held PV scoreless to give the Wildcats the victory 7-6. Casey Moran's outstanding defense at second helped the Wildcats play flawless defense from the 6th inning on. Congratulations on a great team victory!
