CMW falls to Northern, 3-2, in 3A softball semifinals

The C. Milton Wright Mustangs fell one step short of a state 3A title game appearance on Tuesday, suffering a 3-2 loss to six-time defending Maryland champ Northern-Calvert in the state semifinals at Glen Burnie's Bachman Sports Complex.

The Mustangs, playing as the visiting team, conceded one run in the bottom of the first and another in the second.

Two innings later, CMW's Jenny Lynch came up with two runners on bases and smacked a game-tying double.

Both teams went scoreless through the fifth and sixth innings.

Northern led off the home half of the seventh with a single, moved the runner to third base, then got the game-winning hit on an infield single.
