The Gloucester softball team has extended its win streak after a 5-1 win over Saugus last night. The Fishermen remain undefeated this season, bringing their record to 5-0.

Sophomore pitcher Sydney McKay started for Gloucester and didn’t allow the Sachems to score a single run. However, after a line drive to the foot, McKay was forced to leave the mound. She was then relieved by Lizzie Schuster and Maddie Machado.

Machado, a freshman this year, pitched a scoreless final inning and struck out Saugus’ final batter to end the game.

Gloucester’s biggest hit came from sophomore Diane Story, who hit a hard ball past the left fielder early in the fourth inning. Story’s hit brought home freshman Briana Powers and senior captain Whitney Good.

Catcher Sam Cominelli also made a bunt that advanced Meagan Manning from first base to third and put her in scoring position.

“I want to win it all,” said Manning, a captain this year. “At this rate I think we could win the NEC and take it from there.”
