SOFTBALL: Souderton bats stun Pennridge

Souderton would have liked nothing better than to come to Pennridge and beat the Rams on Senior Night. Thanks to power hitting and stellar relief pitching, the Indians did just that.

The Indians used a four-run third and three-run seventh to down their Suburban One Continental rivals. Although Pennridge fought back from a 4-0 hole, Souderton was not to be denied, using seven extra-base hits to slug past its opponent. Meg Roynan’s relief appearance also boosted the visitors, as she held the Souderton lead under pressure.

“We played tough, I’m really proud of my team,” Souderton coach Steph Rummel said. “They never let their heads get down. They wanted it, they proved it and it came out the right way. A lot of our hitters are better relaxed and I think that the mindset shows in the way they hit.”

Many teams would have folded after the kind of third inning Pennridge had. The Indians put four runs on the Rams, including solo home runs from ninth hitter Angie Carty and Nikki Canfield. The other two runs came via an RBI double by Haley Delany and Paige Shelly scoring on a wild pitch after hitting a double. Although Souderton came in with a 4-7 record in the league, no one can dispute the kind of power its lineup possesses.
