The Somerville Storm U14 received a night off last week with a rainout against Burlington on Tuesday night before hosting the Newton Panthers on Wednesday.

The Storm played their best game of the year on Wednesday finishing off the Panthers in five innings, 17-1. 

Again, it was a complete team effort with the Storm pounding out thirteen hits and eight of the nine girls scoring runs with Amanda Grace, Diedre Matthews, and Amolee Hawkins each scoring three times.  Emily O’Regan continued her hot hitting with a pair of hits and a pair of runs scored. Brianna Dellisola was one for three with three RBI’s. Kayla O’Regan was also one for two with a pair of runs, and Jen Toner was two for three with two runs scored.  Emily Woodman and Charlotte Schofield each added a hit and scored runs.

The Storm took a 5-0 after three innings before exploding for 12 runs in the final two frames. 

The Newton Panthers, now 4-6, managed only one run on a pair of hits. The Storm defense was strong again, committing only two errors and recording seven putouts, including a double play on a fly ball caught by center fielder Charlotte Schofield, who threw to SS Brianna Dellisola to double off the runner.

Amolee Hawkins went the distance striking out nine.

The U14 Storm have a busy week this week with Games on Monday in Topsfield, Thursday at Trum at 6:15, and a make-up game in Burlington on Friday.
