Fifth-ranked Arundel didn't get a hit yesterday against Severna Park pitcher Mandy Donaldson, but took advantage of four errors by the host Falcons to pull out a 3-2 win in an Anne Arundel County League South Division softball game.
Soraya Grace went the distance for the Wildcats (5-1 overall, 3-0 in the league), allowing four hits while striking out six. Trailing 2-0, Arundel scored a run in the third and two in the fourth to take the lead.
Right fielder Maria Drury then helped the Wildcats keep it, robbing Donaldson of an extra-base hit in the fifth with a spectacular running catch in the alley.
"I'll take no more hits the rest of the year if we're going to win every game," said Arundel coach Paul Yannuzzi. "It's a nice win ** for us."
