Bensalem vs. Council Rock North

Bensalem Comments
The Owls were able to honor their 3 seniors and secure an 11-1 senior day win over CR North.

CR North was able to get on the board in the first inning that to an RBI single by Taylor Gearhart. But the Owls were able to settle down and shut down the Indians.

Megan Klein and Ayva Knowles led off the game with back to back doubles and Maggie Formichelli hit a sacrifice fly to put up 2 runs in the home half of the 1st.

The Owls were able to add 2 more runs in the 2 inning when Mackenzie Kramer lead off the inning with a double down the right field line and scored later when Kayla Clarkson smoked a line drive at 1st base and was able to beat out the misplayed ball. Clarkson swiped second and was able to score on a Klein’s single.

The big inning came in the 3rd when the Owls played 7 runs. Formichelli lead off the inning with a hustle double on a ball that dropped between 2nd base and center field. Camryn Pickering hit a single up the middle. A walk to Kramer loaded the bases for Ashlyn Merz who hit a 2 RBI single. A few fielders choices, an error and Klein’s second double of the game closes out the Owls scoring.

Maggie Formichelli pitched another solid game throwing all 5 innings only allowing 4 hits while walking 1 and striking out 7.

Megan Klein was 3-3 with 2 stolen bases, 2 doubles and 3 runs scored. Ashlyn Merz was 1-2 with 2 RBIs she put some real good swings on the ball today. I think we are a hard team to game plan for because someone new is stepping up every game.

For the Indians Gearhardt lead the team with 2 hits.
