2A-10 softball: Bishop McLaughlin rolls past Calvary

SPRING HILL — Before the storm clouds and lightning could impact the Class 2A, District 10 semifinal between Bishop McLaughlin and Calvary Christian, the Hurricanes poured on 14 runs off of only six hits in a 14-3 win Monday evening.

"We have never advanced past the first game of districts," Bishop McLaughlin coach John Yaratch said. "When you have beaten somebody twice during the season, you always worry about that third game because you never know what is going to happen."

Bishop McLaughlin (13-9) started the barrage in the first inning, scoring six runs in the first, two in the second and six in the third to close out the scoring. McLaughlin benefited from seven errors and 11 walks by Calvary. Hurricanes freshman pitcher Megan Malone (four strikeouts) pitched four strong innings, allowing no runs on two hits. The Warriors scored three runs in the top of the fifth to avoid the shutout.

The win puts Bishop McLaughlin in the district championship game and state playoffs for the first time. On Thursday, the Hurricanes host the winner of today's semifinal between Tampa Prep and Indian Rocks Christian.
