Wednesday was a perfect day for a SCC Softball game, the warmer temperature, sun shining on her back, Amity’s Katie Koshes pitched a perfect game, striking out 19 of the 21 North Haven batters who went up to the plate.
Koshes was on fire, she went 2 for 3 at bat as well. Dani Nordyk and Jenna DiLorenzo had RBIs and Teresa Marchitto had a hit for the Lady Spartans.
Aside from the first inning in which Amity scored both of its runs, the game was otherwise scoreless: meaning North Haven pitcher Haley Arnaoutis also did a good job on the mound.
This was Amity’s third consecutive win this season.
The Lady Spartans (3-0) travel to Milford to take on the Foran Lions (1-1) Friday at 3:45 p.m.
