Renaissance Academy Bests Perkiomen Softball in TCL Final
Written by Matt D'Ippolito, Correspondent

Perkiomen's Mindy Gallagher runs across home plate, scoring a run as the Renaissance catcher waits for the throw in Tuesday's Tri-County League Championship game played at Perkiomen.

        The Perkiomen School may have been a powerhouse all season in Tri-County League softball play, but the team’s usually unstoppable offense couldn’t manage to match Renaissance Academy in the league championship Tuesday at home.

        Perkiomen (11-5) only managed to put up seven hits to Renaissance’s 13, with the Panthers’ lone RBI coming from second baseman Mindy Gallagher in the 8-4 loss. Defensively, pitcher Meghan MacIntyre had four runs earned against her but was able to throw four strikeouts. Perkiomen only earned two of their four runs and logged seven strikeouts.
        Perkiomen worked the bases well as usual, with Gallagher stealing twice and Dorita Deveney, Gabby Glinski, Jasmine Cora and Erin Whitney each stealing once. But their running and MacIntyre’s pitching efforts weren’t enough to stave off a strong offensive game from the Knights.
        “We were there physically but not mentally,” Perkiomen Head Coach Melissa Gaiser said. “I’m really not sure what happened. We had some amazing plays and hits, but not enough.”
        It had to be a tough loss considering the Panthers’ 15-0 three-inning blanking of Barrack Academy Thursday in the semifinal. That game showcased the entire batting lineup with three hits from Gallagher and two from Isabella San Miguel, and Gallagher, Deveney and Nikki Scott leading in RBIs with three apiece. Perkiomen started the game with a powerful offensive showing, netting its first 11 runs in the first inning.
        The momentum coming into the final wasn’t enough to propel them past the tougher opponent, though. Renaissance was off to a quick start with five runs coming in the first two innings, while the Panthers only scored two of their runs in that same span. And while they held the Knights to one run each in the fourth, sixth and seventh innings, they couldn’t quite catch up.
        Perkiomen’s runs came from Gallagher, Cora, Anya Schultz and Amelia Dormer.
