U18 Girls Softball Hits the Win Column

        Upper Perk Girls Softball League’s U18 VIGs team had an exciting week coming back from a 12-run deficit to tie Quakertown on May 21, and winning its first game of the season with an 11-2 victory over Nor-Gywn on May 22.

        In the Tuesday game, the Tribe went to Quakertown with a depleted squad to challenge the rival RASA team. Due to injuries, Upper Perk had to play the game with only eight players. The Quakertown team took advantage, scoring three runs in the first, four runs in the second and five runs in the third to take a 12 -0 lead. 
        The Tribe never gave up and continued to battle what seemed like insurmountable odds and finally broke through in the top of the fifth scoring eight runs. In the inning every Tribe player got a hit with Sara Good, Meghan MacIntyre and Alexis Coles notching doubles. After Quakertown scored a run in the bottom of the fifth, Upper Perk continued the onslaught with five more runs in the top of the sixth. Pitcher Meghan MacIntyre was then able to shut down Quakertown with a 1-2-3 sixth inning.
        On Wednesday, the Tribe traveled to North Wales to take on Nor-Gywn. The bats continued to be alive as Upper Perk scored two runs in the first, highlighted by Erin Himmelsbach’s double, and three runs in the second off singles by Gabby Glinski, Christa Harris, Sara Good and Mindi Gallagher. Meghan MacIntyre kept the Nor Gywn squad off balance through the first four innings, allowing only one runner to get into scoring position. 
        MacIntyre finished the game with eight strikeouts while allowing only three hits. Top offensive players were Good, 4 for 4; Gallagher, 3 for 4; and Himmelsbach, 2 for 3 with a walk.
        This brings Upper Perk’s record to 1-3-1. Upcoming home games include a pair of games to be played at the Upper Perk High School on June 4 versus Quakertown at 6:15 p.m. and a June 6 game against Deep Run at 6:15 p.m.
