Lynnfield Girls Softball

The Lynnfield Girls Softball League's primary mission is to provide a fun, instructional and safe outlet for girls who want to learn and enjoy the great sport of softball. We also serve as a feeder program that helps build and maintain a strong high school program.

Good start for LGS in ECWSL Week 1

Senior and Junior Teams Go a Combined 6-3

The first week of the 2016 Lynnfield Girls Softball League season was a success as our nine teams all got underway with 10 games total. 

The seven Senior and Junior League teams compiled a total record of 6-3 (including two inter-town games), with four teams making it through the week undefeated.

In the Senior League, the Tigers, Dodgers and Shamrocks all won their opener against out-of-town competition on Monday night. The Dodgers and Shamrocks did not play their second contest of the week due to Tuesday night's rain and the Tigers were postponed Thursday due to a conflict. All enter Week 2 at 1-0.

The Marlins had the best week in the Junior League, starting off 2-0 with close, hard-fought wins over other Lynnfield clubs. The Cubs also came out of the week unscathed, beating the Middleton Rays on Friday night after being rained out Tuesday. The Mariners dropped two close contests, one to the Lynnfield Marlins and the other to the Middleton Marlins. The Blue Jays lost their only game, a squeaker against the Lynnfield Marlins.

In the Farm League, the Bulldogs hosted Middleton on Wednesday and played their in-town counterparts, the Lightning, on Thursday. The Lightning had their game in Topsfield rained out on Tuesday.

None of the rained out games have been rescheduled as of yet.

Week 2 begins tonight (5/2) as the Mariners host Topsfield at the high school and the Shamrocks take on Hamilton-Wenham at the Middle School. Traveling tonight are the Dodgers (at Topsfield) and the Tigers (at Middleton).

Check the rainout line, website, Facebook and Twitter (@LGS_Lynnfield) to see if a game is called off. No notice means the game is on. Good luck to all!

LHS Falls to 3-5

Hamilton-Wenham takes down Lynnfield

The Lynnfield varsity softball team lost its fourth straight game Friday afternoon, 11-5, to league newcomer Hamilton-Wenham to fall to 3-5 on the season. The Pioneers opened the scoring in the first when Rachel Badger singled, stole second, went to third on a sacrifice bunt by Abby Weaver and scored on a hit by Hayley O'Brien. The bottom half was not so kind as the base umpire called five consecutive illegal pitches to start the game and set the tone; this was the first time all year that hurler O'Brien had been called for illegal pitches, but it seriously hurt the Lynnfield cause. The Generals scored five times with the benefit of only one hit in the frame and never looked back.

Lynnfield gets back at it on Monday against Amesbury.

Meanwhile, the Lynnfield JV is quietly compiling a solid winning record. The group is 6-2 overall.

 

Pioneers Fall to Rockport

After a 3-1 start, the LHS varsity softball team has fallen on some hard times. The Pioneers dropped an error-filled 8-1 decision to Newburyport on Wednesday, April 20. The team followed that up with perhaps their best showing of the season in a 5-3 loss to one of the Cape Ann League's two best teams, North Reading. Then, on Monday the 25th, the Pioneers again had the error bug as they fell to visiting Rockport, 16-6.

Lynnfield (3-4 overall, 2-4 Cape Ann League) has a big showdown in Hamilton-Wenham on Friday, the 29th.

 

Three-Run Inning Carries Pioneers to Win

A three-run third inning was all the Lynnfield High varsity needed to edge visiting Masconomet, 3-2, on Friday, April 15. Hits by Abbie Weaver, Rachel Badger and Annika Han, along with an RBI ground out by Hayley O'Brien accounted for the runs.

Masco crawled back in the top of the seventh, scoring two runs and loading the bases. But Han snagged a hard liner to center to end it and preserve O'Brien's second win in three outings.

LHS (2-1) hosts East Boston in a non-league tilt on Monday (10:30 am).

Pioneers Rally, but Fall at Pentucket

Lynnfield rallied from an early 4-0 deficit with a seven-run third inning, but eventually fell to Pentucket, 13-7, at the Pines in Groveland.

Freshman Taylor Tringali, in her first varsity at-bat, led off the Pioneer rally with a single to right field. Junior first baseman Christina Castadoro also notched her first varsity hit in the inning, which saw 12 Pioneers step to the plate. Abbie Weaver, Rachel Badger, Leigh Guerra and Olivia DeLuca had hits in the inning as well.

Sophomore Hayley O'Brien was again on the hill for Lynnfield. She was victimized by some bad bounces, a few defensive lapses and two two-out, two-run home runs that barely cleared the 195-foot (or so) fence as Pentucket gamely rallied back. O'Brien had Lynnfield's only extra-base hit, a double that one-hopped the fence in straightaway centerfield.

Lynnfield (1-1) is back at it Friday at home vs. Masconomet. Game time is 3:45. 

LHS Opens with Win Over Triton

The Lynnfield High Varsity opened its 2016 campaign with a 6-5 walkoff victory over visiting Triton on Monday, April 11. Hayley O'Brien singled home Annika Han with the game-winner in the bottom of the 7th.

Lynnfield had tied the score, 5-5, in the bottom of the sixth when Olivia "Smiley" DeLuca sprinted home from second on an errant pickoff throw. Triton had rallied to take the lead with four runs in the top of the sixth.

O'Brien went the distance on the mound for the win. She was aided by solid defensive play throughout the game.

Lynnfield opened the scoring in the third on an RBI single by Rachel Badger, scoring tri-captain Abbie Weaver from second. Triton tied it in the top of the fourth, but Lynnfield came back with three runs of their own in the bottom half. O'Brien led off the inning with a hit and pinch-runner Taylor Tringali moved to second on a ground out. Kathleen Hamm reached on an error, scoring Tringali. One out later, Leigh Guerra's grounder in the hole was bobbled and thrown wide, plating pinch-runner Allie Wing. Shannon Furey singled, scoring Guerra with the fourth Lynnfield run.

The Pioneers travel to Pentucket on Wednesday.

Lynnfield U16 Team Wins Indoor Crown

Playoff Champs

LHS Squad Wins at Sportsplex

The Lynnfield U16 Indoor Winter Softball League team emerged victorious in the playoff round at the Route One Sportsplex on March 19. Bolstered by a few players from the House team, the Lynnfield girls -- all of whom will be playing for the high school team this spring -- came in as the top seed and won both games in close fashion.

Lynnfield players who participated in the playoffs and/or during the season included Abby Berry, Rachel Badger, Allie Wing, Olivia Montenile, Hayley O'Brien, Kelly Dillon, Alex Ross, Kathleen Hamm, Molly Smedira, Emily Dickey and Lucy Madden.

The Lynnfield U18 team also had a successful winter season, making the top tier of the playoffs, but losing a 1-0 heartbreaker in the first round to a club team.

Great Fun at LGS Banquet

The Isotopes, pictured here at Prince Pizza following the league banquet, reached the playoff semifinals

 

Banquet a Hit

Over 100 players, coaches and parents turned out to enjoy food and each other's company on Monday night, June 22, at Prince Pizza. Every player received a Lynnfield Girls Softball t-shirt and 14 graduating 8th graders took home a special trophy.

The event capped off another excellent season for the league. It was also a transitional year as we joined the Essex County Women's Softball League after having been an in-town league for much or all of our existence. The LGS also welcomed players from grades 2-4 for the first time, and they played (and played well) in the ECWSL's Farm League.

We can't wait for next year and bigger and better things.
