Fuccillo leads the way for Lady Tide

Waiting for postseason slot

By LORENZO RECUPERO

Celeste Fuccillo has fanned 19 batters over the last two Everett High School softball games, leading the Lady Tide to a win before dropping the Greater Boston League Tournament game Sunday against Lynn Classical High School at St. Mary’s Field in Revere.

In the 12-2 win over Lynn English on June 3, the Tide struck early, scoring 7 1st inning runs due to errors and walks to jump out in front for good. And Fuccillo made sure the lead wouldn’t be relinquished, striking out 15, including a 1-2-3 1st inning to set the tone.

Hayley Oteri led all batters going 3 for 5 from the plate. Fuccillo (2 for 4) and Kayley Rossi (2 for 3) pitched in as well.

The team’s strong 3-game wins streak was snapped in a tough 7-4 loss to Lynn Classical Sunday. After falling behind 7-0, Everett fought back in the 5th inning with 4 runs of their own.

The MIAA postseason schedule is set to be announced this week. The schedule will consist of teams that chose to opt-in to the playoff tourney.
