McGann-Mercy wanted a little payback today following their one-run loss to Southold on April 5. Their ace, Sarah Penny, was on the mound ready to throw some heat, but Southold had other ideas. Their bats were hot and they had a 1-0 lead after one inning.

The Southold defense came to play too, as did their ace Ashley Hilary, who was in the zone with her pitching. Southold chased Penny by the third inning, after adding another two runs to bring the score to 3-0. Penny was replaced by Izzy Sorgi. It wasn’t much better, as Southold managed another three runs to make it 6-0 on some fancy hitting by Kathleen Tuthill and Hannah Sutton. McGann-Mercy tried to mount a comeback in the top of the seventh, but was shut down by Southold. Final score: 6-0.

Southold plays at home on Saturday at 12 noon against Center Moriches.

McGann-Mercy next plays Shelter Island at home on Saturday at 11 a.m.
