Maris Barbato belted out a 4-hit day in Ursuline’s 12-6 win at Girard. Barbato finished a homerun shy of the cycle as she also drove in 4 runs. Gia Caldrone and Jordyn Kenneally each had a pair of base hits as well. Kenneally (10-4) tossed 5 innings while Emma Ericson came in to close out the game by pitching the last two.
The Irish (20-4) now focus their attention on the tournament as they will face either Alliance or Niles in Friday’s sectional title tilt at YSU.
Leading Girard’s offense was Sidney Durkin – who closed out her evening with a double and a single. The Lady Indians are matched against Springfield on Monday in the South Range Division III District Semifinal.
