Taking advantage of their abundant quickness, Smyrna softball put together two big innings to defeat Charter of Wilmington 10-0 Friday.
Playing a rare 11am weekday game thanks to Good Friday, Smyrna woke up quickly as Alexis Moore utilized her lightning speed to reach first on an infield single.
Following an error on Olyvia Smith’s sacrifice bunt, the wheels began to turn full speed on Smyrna’s offense.
Kaelyn Press hit an RBI single but Sara Miller doubled to center, bringing in two more runs.
Laiken Zay’s RBI double and Kayla Wilson’s 2-run single finished off what would be a 6-run, 6-hit, 11-batter bottom of the 1st for Smyrna.
They’d jump on Charter again in the 4th, as the top four batters all reached base and scored.
Moore guided a double along the left-field line, before Olyvia Smith doubled to put runners at second and third with no one out.
Press connected on a 2-run single to center, and Miller drove an RBI double to left.
Madison Drummond then put the game up to the critical 10-run margin with a run-scoring single to left.
The offense was more than enough for Jessica Anderson, who tossed a complete game 4-hitter in picking up the victory.
Smyrna (7-2) won their 6th straight game, as they take a break until Saturday, April 22 when they face Arthur L. Johnson (New Jersey) at Caravel at 4pm.
Taylor Gillis had two hits for Charter (6-2), who will return to action Monday, April 24 at home against Newark Charter.
