catcher Slaugh­en­houpt mak­ing the catch along the pro­tec­tive net­ting. Af­ter con­sec­u­tive sin­gles, Ko­lakowski in­duced a popup to Colonel Richard­son’s Mor­gan Wil­loughby to end the in­ning.

Wil­loughby started the sec­ond with a sin­gle, and scored when Mur­ray blasted her home run to left for a 2-0 North lead. North Dorch­ester’s Brooke Mor­ton drew a walk, and con­sec­u­tive sin­gles by Mor­ton team­mate Mered­ith Bell and Strange loaded the bases.

St. Michaels’ Samantha Romberger de­liv­ered by rip­ping a two-run sin­gle by the mid­dle for a 4-0 lead. Eas­ton’s Cameron Fos­ter added to the lead by plat­ing Strange on a sac­ri­fice fly to cen­ter.

Af­ter a sec­ond score­less in­ning by Ko­lakowski, the North loaded the bases on three straight sin­gles by Wil­loughby, Mur­ray and Ko­lakowski with one out in the third.

Ad­kins, who pitched a gem in the state semi­fi­nals against the 1A state cham­pi­ons Bo Manor and fresh­man pitcher Madi­son Penta, got out of the in­ning with a popup and ground­out.

Mor­ton took over in the cir­cle for the North in the third in­ning with her long­time catcher Bell be­hind the plate. She al­lowed one hit and struck out one in her two in­nings of work.

The North added to its lead in the fifth with a two-run in­ning. Miles started the in­ning by blast­ing a solo home run to left. Colonel Richard­son’s Gabby Galante sin­gled to cen­ter, and later scored on a wild pitch for a 7-0 lead.

North Caro­line’s Brea Bishop and Cambridge-South Dorch­ester’s Katie Smith were un­able to play due to an in­jury, but coached first and third base dur­ing the in­ning.

Wil­loughby pitched the fifth in­ning for the North, strik­ing out four. A dropped third strike and throw­ing er­ror al­lowed the South to get on the board at 7-1.

Galante fin­ished the game at the mound for the North, pitch­ing the fi­nal two in­nings. She al­lowed a run and struck two in her out­ing.
