Girls High posted an impressive turnaround in a Public League quarterfinal softball playoff on Friday, handing host Northeast its first loss of the season, 22-6, in a five-inning game.
Brianne Lineman had a double and a triple to pace a 16-hit attack to avenge a 10-run loss to Northeast during the regular season.
The Vikings (14-1) had won 13 of their 15 games by at least 10 runs.
The win advanced Girls High (11-3) into the league semifinal on Tuesday against Science Leadership Academy at La Salle University (1 p.m.). The other semifinal will be the second game of that doubleheader at the same site, featuring Masterman and Franklin Towne Charter (3 p.m.).
Catholic. Host St. Hubert strung together four consecutive hits in a seven-run second inning on the way to a 10-0 league quarterfinal playoff win over Archbishop Wood.
The entire lineup for the Bambies (15-5) was productive, as Melissa Robinson and Erica Ragazzone had back-to-back doubles in the middle of the seven-run inning and Samantha Coyle, the No. 6 hitter, had a run-scoring single. Coyle finished 3 for 3.
Pitcher Robinson took care of the rest of the game, tossing a three-hit shutout.
