The New City-Suffern-Congers 9-10 softball all-stars clinched a spot in the Eastern Regional Tournament championship game with a win Wednesday afternoon.
NCSC will play for the regional title tonight against the Delaware state champs at 6 p.m. The regional tournament is in Old Forge, Pa., and is the highest level the 9-10 softball age bracket goes.
To get to the championship, NCSC beat the New Jersey team from Robbinsville Little League 4-3 Wednesday night. Kaitlyn Fudge pitched a complete game for NCSC, and the win improves her record to 10-0 this summer between the district, section, state and regional tournaments. On Wednesday, Fudge gave up three hits and struck out 10.
Sasha Goldstein drove in two of NCSC’s runs and scored another in the win. Kristin Tarantino went 2-3 with an RBI.
The loss was the New Jersey team’s first in the regional tournament. NCSC improves to 3-1 in the regional tournament. NCSC’s loss in pool play was the first loss for their team this summer after sweeping through the district, section and state tournaments.
Delaware advanced to the title game in similar fashion, by beating the previously unbeaten Pennsylvania team. Delaware is also 3-1 heading into championship game.
