The Pembroke Softball team got its season off to a great start on Thursday afternoon. In their first game-action of the year, the Dragons came away with an 18-2 win over league mate Byron-Bergen, as their starting pitcher Allie Schwerthoffer put forth a great effort.
Schwerthoffer stifled the Bees on Thursday, allowing only two hits while striking out seven. As an eighth grader, she has big shoes to fill this season after the departure of quality starter Sam Tatarski – who graduated after the 2017 season. So far, so good for the Pembroke hurler.
Offensively for the Dragons yesterday, several batters recorded notable performances.
Leading the way for the Dragons was Haylee Luderman, who finished 2/3 with an RBI and three runs scored. McKenna Johnson also chipped in with two RBI and three runs scored. Dekari Moss, Schwerthoffer and Sarai Dixson all added hits, while Hailey Natalizia walked three times and also scored three runs.
The game ended after five innings of play due to the mercy rule.
With the win, Pembroke is 1-0, while Byron-Bergen falls to 0-1 with the loss.
Next up for the Dragons will be Holley this afternoon, while the Bees look forward to a matchup with Alexander later today.
