THIELLS Sophomore Sidney Padilla and senior Hayley Napier each drove in three runs when visiting Suffern defeated North Rockland 10-6 in a League IV-A softball game Tuesday.
Padilla had a three-run double in the top of the first inning to get the Mounties started.
“My first at bat is always really anxious,” Padilla said. “I knew I had to hit the ball and when I hit it, I knew I was right on it.”
“We had to keep hitting even when the defense got rough,” Napier said. “We had hit in timely situations and it was a good game.”
Sam Iodice went 4 for 4 with two doubles, two RBI and two runs scored. Rachel Schwartz also drove in a pair of runs. The Mounties pounded out 12 hits.
“Offensively, we are capable of doing that at any given time,” Mounties coach Jim Lloyd said. “Defensively, we can give them back as fast as we can score. We’ve hit like that against Tappan Zee, Pearl River, Valley Central. I never feel safe. The defense doesn’t hold up.”
The teams combined for nine errors, six by North Rockland.
The Mounties know they’ll need to be better on defense when these teams meet again on May 2.
“I’m really excited to see them again,” Padilla said. “I’m hope do a lot better next time. We did really well this time, too. I think we can keep going and be a really good team.”
All the offense was in support of Kate Wood, who allowed three earned runs. She scattered eight hits, didn’t walk a batter and struck out six.
Amanda Smith had a two-run double in the home first but Wood settled down to shut out the Red Raiders over the next three innings.
“I give them a lot of credit. They have some talented players on their team,” Wood said. “I think a lot of that mental toughness came from working on the mental game preseason. You don’t give up, you don’t think you’re losing and when you’re winning, you don’t think you’re winning. It’s tied. The whole game you’re tied until you can put some more runs on the board and feel safe. But even then you’re always thinking you want more.”
Madison Knipl took the loss, going four and a third innings and allowing three earned runs on nine hits. She had an RBI double. Megan Carbia went 2 for 4, with a double and an RBI.
