Northside overpowers Shorecrest 15-9

ST. PETERSBURG — Northside Christian doesn't have any trouble scoring runs. Behind the strong offensive performance of Kayla Turner, Julianne Grande and Tiffany Boyer the Mustangs slugged their way to a 15-9 victory over Shore­crest on Thursday. The win kept Northside unbeaten.

"They hit the ball so well," Shorecrest coach Trent Rubley said. "We have to keep it low and make them hit it on the ground."

The Chargers scored first when Alexis Galinski reached on a walk and scored on a single by Hannah Smith. Northside struck back with two runs in the bottom of the first inning.

After Shorecrest took a 4-2 lead in the second inning, Northside broke open the game with seven runs. Jessica Anderson drove in two runs with a single, Lauren Tozour had a two-run double and Boyer drove in two runs with a triple.

The Chargers chipped away at the lead, getting three runs in the third and two in the fourth to tie the game at 9. Jacque Galinski, Hannah Smith and Hayley Smith did most of the damage on offense.

"They're a well-coached team and their kids are prepared," Mustangs coach John Anderson said. "Coach Rubley taught them the game."

Northside shut the door as Jessica Anderson and the Mustangs' defense allowed only one baserunner the rest of the way.

The Mustangs were led by Boyer, who had a double, triple and three RBIs. Kathryn Brown added three singles, and Grande and Turner added two hits apiece.

Shorecrest's offense was led by Smith, who had a double, a single and two RBIs.
