Offense, Dibble Powers Upper Perkiomen Softball to District Semifinals
Written by Bradley Schlegel, Staff Writer

            Upper Perkiomen's softball team is back in the state tournament. On

Morgan Lindsay circles the bases after hitting a home run

in Upper Perk's vicotory over Upper Dublin.

Wednesday, the team relied on its potent offense and the solid pitching of Lily Dibble to post a 10-1 victory over Upper Dublin in the second round of the District One Class 5A Tournament.

            Morgan Lindsay, Dani Freer and Sierra Fretz each delivered three hits for the fourth-seeded Indians (16-7), who travel to No. 1 seed West Chester East on Friday for a semifinal round game Friday. Lindsay, their No. three hitter, homered. Freer, the No. four seed, doubled. Fretz, the No. five hitter who also homered, finished a triple short of the cycle.

            Lily Dibble allowed one run on seven hits for Upper Perkiomen, which qualified for the states for the third consecutive year. The sophomore, who permitted a single run in the second, registered three strikeouts and did not issue walk.

            Dibble was supported by near-flawless defense. The Indians did not commit an error. Third baseman Kelsey Bernhart made consecutive standout plays in the second inning, making a diving catch of a bunt and diving to her left to snare a line drive. They threw out an Upper Dublin runner at the plate on a double to right center field to ending the inning.

            The Indians rallied for four runs on four hits in the third inning to snap a 1-1 tie. Freer delivered an RBI hit and scored ahead of Fretz's homer to left field.

            Freer's RBI double in the fourth inning highlighted a three-run rally in the fourth inning. Lynnsi Joyce added a sacrifice fly in the fifth inning. Lindsay's solo shot an inning later capped the scoring.

            Dean Sullivan's team is guaranteed at least two more district playoff games, as well as a berth in the PIAA Class 5A tournament, which begins June 3.
