If an off ense can’t get something going consistently, it makes it more diffi cult to win the game, and as a result the Everett High softball team (19-3, 33rd I seed) has to go home early after host Belmont (11-8, 32nd seed) was able to hang on to beat its Greater Boston League (GBL) counterparts in a Division 1 preliminary round game, 2-0 on May 31. “(Belmont) was such a beatable team, but unfortunately we just didn’t bring our bats,” said coach Stacy Poste-Schiavo afterwards. Pitcher Peyton Warren once again did her job after going six complete innings, and allowing just six hits and two earned runs. She fanned one batter.

Emma Longmore led off the game with a walk. Bryanna Mason then tried to bring her home, but her line shot to center was tracked down by the centerfi elder. The Marauders went down in order in the home half of the fi rst on a liner to shortstop Gianna Masucci, a fly to centerfielder Jayla Davila and another fl y to leftfi elder Arabella Cvitkusic. The Tide loaded the bases in the second on walks to Emilia Maria-Babcock, Davila and Arabella Cvitkusic, but they were unable to get that clutch hit to break the scoreless tie. But the Marauders did break the tie when they came to the plate with two runs on three hits. In the third, Mason was credited with Everett’s fi rst hit of the game, but she too was stranded on the basepaths. The game continued to move along at a brisk pace, thanks to the solid pitching and defense on both sides. But in the fi fth, Cvitkusic walked, before Longmore singled to start the visitors fourth threat in fi ve innings. Alexa Uga then drew a two-out walk to load the bases again, but another fl y to the outfi eld ended that potential surge, as well. In the home half of the sixth, Belmont had runners on first and second, but the Everett girls once again made the defensive plays to go along with a strikeout by Warren to get out of the jam. But in its fi nal at-bat, Everett was retired in order to lose the close, heartbreaking contest. “This was defi nitely a frustrating loss, because our girls played great defense to support their pitcher Peyton Warren, who pitched another amazing game,” said Poste-Schiavo, “and Emilia (Maria-Babcock) supported (Warren) throughout the game behind the plate. “This was not the hitting team that we have been throughout this entire season,” added the veteran Everett coach. “The Belmont pitcher was not overpowering, and we should have hit her better. We made contact, but directly at their players, and also couldn’t take advantage of our bases loaded chances. “Overall, assistant coach Jennifer Nigro and myself are extremely proud of this team. They worked hard work, and played with determination all season long. They are also a great group of kids, who worked well together on and off the fi eld, and we would like to thank everyone for their support to the team this season.” Masucci chosen GBL MVP Everett senior shortstop Gianna Masucci was selected as the GBL MVP by the league coaches recently. They also named junior catcher Emilia Maria-Babcock, senior second baseman Emma Longmore, senior fi rst baseman Bryanna Mason and junior pitcher Peyton Warren to the 2024 all-star team.
