Behind a note-worthy performance on the mound from junior pitcher Celeste Fuccillo, the Lady Tide picked up their first win of the season, topping Somerville 7-6 in the ninth inning.

A three-year starter for Everett, Fuccillo came into the match having surrendered 8 earned runs to Medford High School in the May 26 loss (14-2), but it was her bounce-back performance that stole the show and helped the Tide eke out the win.

“Celeste pitched an amazing game,” said Crimson Tide Head Coach Stacy Poste-Schiavo, who watched her ace fan 14 batters on the day. “After the Medford game, we told her she needed to lay off the outside pitches because when they came around late, they were getting a piece of the ball. She adjusted and as a result, she had 14 strikeouts and only 5 hits,” said Poste.
