Bryn Mawr senior shortshop Auburn Stephenson talks about her team's win over St. Paul's on Friday, April 17, 2015.
Bryn Mawr's softball team couldn't play much better than it did Friday against St. Paul's School for Girls. The Mawrtians excelled at hitting, pitching and defense in a 13-1 victory over the Gators in an Interscholastic Athletic Association B Conference game at St. Paul's shortened to five innings because of a 10-run Mercy rule.
Bryn Mawr pitchers Sydney Stephenson, a freshman, and Maddy Unger, a senior, combined to give up two hits and strike out six as the Mawrtians improved to 8-0.
The Mawrtians had eight hits, including three for extra bases, against St. Paul's pitchers Liz Kelly and Kelly Blakes. They didn't commit an error.
"They are 8-0 for a reason," St. Paul's coach Ken Nagle said. "Their pitcher (Stephenson) throws hard and throws a lot of strikes. She doesn't give you a whole lot of opportunities. They play a clean game defensively. They do a very good job of limiting opportunities. They can really swing the bats. It's a tough combination."
Junior catcher Robin Brocato had a double and 3 RBIs and Stephenson scored three runs to lead the Bryn Mawr offense.
