Bazonski, Eagles beat St. Joe
PITTSFIELD -- Alicia Bazonski brought her "A" game to the Doyle Softball Complex Monday afternoon. That game helped Mount Everett beat St. Joseph's.
Bazonski tossed a two-hitter and struck out 14 as the Eagles edged the Crusaders 1-0.
St. Joe's starter Marissa Avanzato didn't have quite the gaudy numbers, but the senior was just as effective. She surrendered three hits and only one walk while striking out four.
The Eagles had two of their three hits in the fifth inning, and that's when they scored their run. Deseraye Conaway led off with a single, took third on Sam Hoover's single and scored on Rachel Ackerman's squeeze bunt.
The Crusaders had a chance to tie the game with a runner at third and two outs in the seventh but couldn't.
