DISTRICT 3 SOFTBALL

Bermudian Springs 10,

Lancaster Catholic 1

Tori Murren dazzled and the Eagles’ bats came to life as Bermudian Springs claimed a dominating road victory in the District 3 Class 3A quarterfinals on Thursday.

Briella Riley opened the scoring with a two-run single for Berm (11-10) in the second inning which proved to be more than enough for Murren, who allowed just one run on five hits in a complete game. She also struck out nine.

Riley finished the game 3-for-4 at the dish with four RBI, while Maddie Reever and Gabby Kaltreider each knocked in a pair. Reever and Kaltreider each notched hits as part of a five-run seventh inning that put the game to bed for the Eagles, who now travel to top-seeded Trinity (15-2) on Tuesday for the semifinals. A win would ensure Bermudian not only a berth in next Thursday’s title game, but also a state playoff spot.

Brandywine Heights 9, Fairfield 3

A five-run third inning by the Bullets proved too much for the visiting Green Knights on Thursday in the Class 2A semifinals.

Top-seeded Brandywine (13-7) struck for two runs in the first inning before fourth-seeded Fairfield (9-10) got one back on a Cameryn Swartz RBI single in the top of the second. The Bullets kept coming, however, adding a third run in their half of the second before a five-run outbreak in the third.

Kira Weikert started in the circle for the Knights and went 2 1/3, allowing four earned runs before being relieved by Ellie Snyder.

Swartz, Weikert and Cailin Swam each recorded an RBI for Fairfield.
