With the season on the line, the Gloucester High School softball team fought back to continue on to the Division 2 North semifinals.

Until the seventh inning, Gloucester had been kept to only three hits and was losing by three runs.

This all changed when Jemima Grow walked and then made it to second off of Jenna Hoofnagle’s single. Then, Taylor Abbott hit a two run RBI double which tied the game and took it to extra innings. Tracy Wood started off the eighth inning by hitting a dropped line drive and making it to second. Elizabeth Schuster then laid down a bunt, which was thrown over the first baseman’s head and gave Wood an opportunity to score the winning run, ending the game at 5-4.

“When Taylor tied the game it brought me out of the sadness I was feeling because I thought the season was over,” said third baseman Marissa Orlando. “It felt really good to be able to show that we deserve to be moving onto the semifinals.”

With this win, Gloucester will be competing in the next round against No. 6 Burlington. The last time the GHS softball team was in the semifinals was in 2016.

The next game will be on Wednesday, against Burlington June 13th in Lowell.
