OXFORD – The Oxford Lady Pirates had a huge week in girls softball winning three of four games against key SWCL opponents.
The Pirates defeated Millbury 4-3, Uxbridge 16-4, and Southbridge 10-3 with their only loss coming at the hands of the Tantasqua Warriors, 12-8.
Junior Jamie Brodeur hit a walk-off sacrifice in the bottom of the seventh and sophomore hurler Evelyn “The Dynasty” Marquis pitched a nifty six-hitter and scored the winning run as the Pirates squeaked by the Woolies 4-3 in a real barnburner on Monday (April 22).
The Pirates fell to the Tantasqua Warriors 12-8 in an offensive slugfest on Wednesday (April 24). Mimi Abreau had a pair of hits, including a homer in the loss.
Brodeur and Sarah Smith supplied the offense and Marquis pitched a complete game as the Pirates crushed the Uxbridge Spartans 16-4 on Thursday (April 15)
Marquis had three hits while holding the Pioneers to only three hits on Saturday (April 27) in the Pirates 10-3 win. Smith also belted a couple of hits for the Pirates in the victory.
The Pirates take on Shepherd Hill at home this Friday (May 3) in a game that has all the makings of real battle.
