Softball: Countryside duo combines on perfect game to beat Lakewood 11-0

CLEARWATER — Countryside celebrated senior day in perfect fashion Wednesday afternoon.

Seniors Erica Queen and Davionna DiSalvatore combined to retire all 15 Lakewood batters in an 11-0 victory shortened by the mercy rule.

"They have not played great recently, and it was good to come out and play this well," Cougars coach Kaylyn Bayly said. "When you can score that many runs in five innings, it's always a good thing."

After being retired in order in the first inning, the Cougars capitalized on three Spartan errors and two walks to score five runs in the second.

The Countryside offense did its own damage in the third as it scored six runs on seven hits.

Ashleigh Bynum opened the inning with a single, and DiSalvatore and Holly Ostrander singled to load the bases. Kelsie Sanchez singled in the first run. A fielder's choice cut down a run at the plate before Kristin Hubbard singled to drive in two runs. Ayanna Andrews drove in two more runs with a triple and scored on a Spartan error.

"We didn't get off to a good start, but we were able to get some at-bats later," Bayly said. "We were able to relax and focus on mechanics to get a few solid hits."

Countryside faces St. Petersburg in next week's PCAC Challenge and the upcoming Class 6A, District 7 tournament.

"It's going to be tough to play a team four times," Bayly said. "But hopefully, we can build on this."
