SOFTBALL: North Penn rolls over Central Bucks East

For Montgomery Media / MARK C. PSORAS North Penn's Erin Maher scores a run as Central Bucks East catcher Julia Schoenwald calls for a late throw during Thursday's PIAA Class AAAA quarterfinal game.
The North Penn softball team remembers the jitters it had prior to its first PIAA game a year ago.

The feeling of losing that game has been festering ever since. The Maidens certainly could empathize with Central Bucks East after they handed them a 11-0 loss in the Class AAAA quarters, but on Thursday afternoon it was all smiles on the Maidens’ side.

The goal was to get further than they did a season ago and now with two wins in the state playoffs the Maidens have done that. On Monday they will face Neshaminy in the semifinals at a time and place yet to be determined.

“I told my coaches winning the district last year and losing in the first round of states was going to help us,” Maidens coach Rick Torresani said. “Central Bucks East won the district, but they’ve never been in this environment.”
