MONROE, CT — Masuk High’s softball team extended its winning streak to six games and improved to 7-1 overall with an 18-9 win at Stratford on Wednesday and a 14-0 blanking of visiting New Fairfield the next day. The New Fairfield game was called in the fifth inning because of the mercy rule.
The Panther bats showed no mercy in the opening inning, pouncing on the Rebels to the tune of six runs to get things started.
Ella Bunovsky tripled with one out and Izzy Viglione, Sofia Lieto, Alyssa Castillo and pitcher Grace Ely — helping her own cause — all smacked doubles in the opening frame.
When all was said and done, Natalie Lieto doubled and homered, Bunovsky had four hits — including a pair of triples — and Viglione, Sofia Lieto and Castillo each had two hits. Julia Bacoulis and Aubrey Zvovshe-Ramos both had hits and scored in the triumph.
Ely allowed just two hits as Masuk posted its third shutout of the season.
Masuk gets back to action Monday, April 24, when Notre Dame-Fairfield comes to town at 4:15 p.m.
