Thunder -N- Lightening
Rain threaten to spoil the Lady Warriors play off debut the entire day , at one point thunder could be heard in the distance as dark clouds bullied their way towards the Reservation where Lady Warriors call home , ady Crusaders were crossing the plains with their contingency in tow . A first round victory was at stake and Coughlin had their eye on the prize . In 7 innings , #6 Gwen Glatz eliminated the red-white and blue crusaders in grand fashion with an unbelievable riser and puncturing fastball that seated itself deep in the pocket of catcher Sarah Coolbaugh 's glove . 8 times she worked batters over giving them something to look at then
escorted them to the bench . In the top of 4 she melted their hearts retiring
the sides 1-2-3. Glatz did scatter 6 hits and 1 free pass before delivering the final blow behind an outstanding defensive performance . At the plate , the Lady Warriors used up the crusader arm in 6 innings punishing the lime green sphere all over the diamond flooding the stat sheet with ribbies and runs . Bree Bednarski led all hitters going 3-4 with Rbi . Gwen Glatz , Sara Coolbaugh and Kristi Skok had multiple hits . Jess Parente stole home while Lauren Maloney and Jules Scappaticci both laid down beautiful bunt singles .
With the weather report rain free the WA Lady Warriors delivered thunder and lightening with an 8-0 round 1 victory that sets up a Wednesday night showdown at the Reservation with an undetermined opposition at press time .
