Varsity roundup (April 18): Hereford upsets No. 2 Dulaney in softball, 5-2

Hannah League hit the game-winning single to lift Hereford (3-2) to a 5-2 win over No. 2 Dulaney (9-1) in softball.

Erin Collins (3-for-3) hit her third home run of the season and she allowed one hit and struck out eight for the win.

No. 11 Broadneck 1, No. 3 Severna Park 0: It took a little small ball early and a dominant pitching performance from senior Ally Thompson late, but No. 11 Broadneck got the statement victory it was looking for on Tuesday against rival No. 3 Severna Park.

The Bruins scratched across a run in the bottom of the first inning when Kierstyn Hassler led off with a walk and then later slid home safely on a double steal. And that, as it turned out, was all Thompson needed.

The Bruins' ace struck out 15 batters — one short of her own program record— and allowed just five hits in a 1-0 victory that helps keep Broadneck (9-3, 7-2 Anne Arundel County) just one game behind first-place Arundel in the league standings.

Thompson had it all working against the Falcons, hitting the corners and taking advantage of a curveball and screwball that had a lot of movement. And when she did get into trouble, as she did in the top of the first and fourth innings when Severna Park (7-3, 8-4) loaded the bases, she made the big pitches she needed to.
