Mon. S.J. girls' roundup: Perfect outings for Kingsway, New Egypt pitchers

Posted: May 08, 2012

Kelsey Dominik of Kingsway and New Egypt's Alison Martino pitched perfect, but abbreviated, games to highlight Monday's South Jersey softball action.

Dominik (17-3) struck out nine in notching her first perfecto as the host Dragons needed just five innings to scorch Delsea, 14-0, in a Tri-County Conference clash.

Martino (14-2) retired a dozen batters on strikes over six innings, as the host Warriors dismissed Burlington County League rival Maple Shade, 10-0.

Olympic. The Battle of Cherry Hill went West's way, when Jamie Robertson escaped a bases-loaded, none-out jam in the seventh by striking out two batters and inducing a game-ending groundout to earn the 1-0 home win over East.

Bishop Eustace, the No. 6 team in The Inquirer's Top 10, clinched the Olympic Conference Freedom Division championship in dominant fashion, getting goals from a dozen players in trouncing Gloucester Catholic, 22-5.

Morgan Wright led the charge with four goals, while Mikaela Gekas-Robinson, Kristen Kelbon and Mel Vasso each registered a hat trick for the Crusaders (11-2 overall, 9-0 division).

Tenth-ranked Seneca, which already had the National Division title in the bag, used a 4-1 second-half surge to pull away to a 7-3 victory at second-place West Deptford.

Ellie Blythe had a hat trick and Maddy Schulte chipped in two goals and an assist for the Golden Eagles (11-2, 9-0).

Cherry Hill East's tandem of Caitlin Delaney (7 goals) and Becca Taub (5 goals) proved too tough for host Cherokee to handle, as the Cougars cruised to a 15-8 win.

Burlington County. Clare MacAdam deposited her third goal of the match with 55 seconds remaining in regulation, allowing ninth-ranked Holy Cross to rally from a 4-1 halftime deficit and escape with a 7-6 home win over Northern Burlington.

The Greyhounds' upset bid was buoyed by Nicolette Salay (3 goals) and Tizzy Hoggs (2 goals).

Cinnaminson broke open a tight game with a 10-4 second-half outburst, as Sarah Ritter and Carleigh MacWilliams combined for nine goals in a 14-8 triumph at Delran.
