It's District Championship for Upper Perk Girls Softball
Written by Bradley Schlegel
2017-06-01

            Morgan Lindsay smacked a two-run homer in the bottom of the fourth inning to power Upper Perkiomen's softball team to 4-1 victory over Villa Maria Academy in the District One Class 4A softball title game Wednesday afternoon.

            Taylor Lindsay went the distance on the mound for the Indians (21-3), who advance to the PIAA Tournament. She allowed just three hits and struck out 10 at Methacton High School. 

            "This is an awesome accomplishment," Head Coach Dean Sullivan said. "It hasn't hit me yet."

            Morgan Lindsay's two-run shot on a 3-2 fastball off Alyssa Viscardo snapped a 1-1 tie for Upper Perkiomen.  The pitch was supposed to be a drop, according to Hurricanes head coach Nicki Hartshorn.  "It was an awesome feeling," said Morgan Lindsay, a freshman catcher.

            Alyssa Sullivan finished with two hits for the Indians, who will take on the No. 3 seed from District Three on Monday at a site and time to be determined.

            "Upper Perkiomen better win a state championship," Hartshorn said. "That's the only thing that is going to make me feel better."

            Villa Maria Academy went ahead 1-0 in the second inning on a second-inning home run by Lisa Becker.  After squandering scoring opportunities in the initial three innings, the top-seeded Indians forged a 1-1 tie in the fourth inning on a sacrifice fly by Olivia Young.

            They took the lead for good in the fourth on Morgan Lindsay's one-out homer to left field, which scored Sarah Heidler.

            Emily Moll's slap single to left field in the sixth inning drove home Alyssa Sullivan to cap the scoring.

            Taylor Lindsay retired 14 consecutive hitters before allowing a single to open the seventh inning. However, she retired the next three Hurricanes hitters to clinch the title.
