Hawks score 18 runs in five inning victory at Elkton

Since a season-opening loss to Harford Tech, in which it scored seven runs, the North Harford softball time has scored 10 runs or more in each of its last three games, all victories, including an 18-5 demolition of Elkton, on the road in Cecil County Friday afternoon.

The Hawks scored five times in the top of the first and six more in the second to take control. They would go on to score in each of their five turns at the plate including four more in the top of the fifth. Elkton, which scored two times in the bottom of the first, scored three times in the fourth to pull with 14-5, but the Hawks would not be denied.

North Harford had 13 hits, including two each by Lauren Landis, Tonya Marks, Maggie Mullin, Emme Brossoit and Alexis Trzeciak. The Hawks only had one extra-base hit, however, a double by Dani Becker, who had three RBI’s and two runs scored. Trzeciak also drove in three runs.

Mullin was the winning pitcher, working all five innings, allowing six hits and two earned runs while striking out five.
