Aaliyah Gonzalez hit a three-run home run in the top of the fourth inning off East Hampton pitcher Alyssa Brabant to lead Elwood-John Glenn (5-6 overall, 3-6 League V) to an 11-0 shutout Monday, April 22. Lauren Hoolahan went 4-for-5 with two RBIs for the Knights. Amanda Howard earned the win. She pitched seven innings, allowing no runs on three hits, striking out 10 and walking three.
The loss follows a dominant 25-2 win by East Hampton over Amityville April 16 that snapped a seven-game losing streak. The Bonackers (2-8, 2-7) scored early and often in that game, with Sophia Swanson supplying five runs, going 1-for-1 with a triple and four walks. A balanced attack led to multiple runs across five innings, including an eight-run second and seven-run fourth. Brabant was the winning pitcher.
East Hampton faces a tough Mt. Sinai team next, traveling to the 7-1 Mustangs today, Wednesday, April 24, for a 10 AM game. The Bonackers will host Miller Place (6-3) the following day at 10 AM.
