High Schools: Ken West wins big in softball


Tonawanda News — “Believe it or not, in Florida, we practice-striking out and running it out,” said Ken West coach Matt Chimera. “We actually practice it because in situations like that it puts the defense in a bind. It did.....That was a big play, but we also had some big hits. I think all of our young kids all had a hit. At least one. Charlotte had some big hits. Lina (Mirabella) had a couple big hits. I thought we hit the ball well.”

Mirabella (2-for-3/triple/two RBI) doubled home in the third to make it 6-0. Miller led off the fourth with a triple as the Blue Devils would score three more runs and help Ken West extend its lead to 9-0.

Miller mixed her pitches well and her change-up was especially effective as she struck out nine Lady Lions in her six inning of work in the pitching circle.

Lady Lions (1-2 NFL) coach Julie Kwoka gave credit where it was do. Kwoka said Ken West hit the ball hard, made plays in the field and were aggressive on the base paths. Kwoka said that her team has learn from this game and find a way to be more efficient and make the plays they know they can make.

“There’s a lot of little things we need to talk about,” Kwoka said. “Today, (West) also hit the ball very well. You can always count on Kenmore West to hit the ball hard, and they do. They hit the ball hard.”

Lions starting pitcher Megan Schneider (2-for-2) collected two of her teams three hits.

Borkowski (two runs), who scored the final West run, worked a 1-2-3 seventh inning to close out the win.

It was a twin killing for Ken West who scored a 5-4 win in JV action.

The Blue Devils are scheduled to host Kenmore East, today at 4:45.
