Rena Maritote pitched the nightcap and fanned four while allowing an earned run. Christina Carbonaro went 2-for-3 and had a RBI double for the Blazers.

Earlier in the week Hernandez pitched a shutout against area rival Elmwood Park. She had nine strikeouts and gave up five hits in the 2-0 win.

In the first inning, Marissa Bertolli singled and then scored on a double by Kelly O’Brien, who went 2-for-3 on the day. The Blazers added another run in the second inning when Christi McNamara scored on a double by Carbonaro. Senior Karen Wagner went 2-for-2 in the much needed win.
