Softball drops opener in thrilling last at bat

By LORENZO RECUPERO

Crimson Tide softball opened the season Monday, coming up just short as rival Revere High School pulled off the come-from-behind victory on their home field.

Tied, 4-4, in the seventh inning, with two strikes and two outs and a man on second base, Revere hit a timely double to drive in the winning run.

Revere opened the game with a first inning home run off of Celeste Fuccillo to take the lead before the Lady Tide (0-1) stormed back with a 4-run third inning, powered by senior Macayla Bessler’s 2-run double that scored runners Haley Oteri and Kayley Rossi. Bessler also scored a run of her own on a passed ball in the inning.

Fuccillo, the Lady Tide’s ace in the bullpen, didn’t get the win but pitched a complete game to go with seven strikeouts.

The Tide will go up to bat next at Glendale Park on Wednesday against Medford High School. First pitch is scheduled for 4 PM.
