Vikings softball crushes Nauset in home opener
The Wareham Vikings softball team smashed their way into the season with a 22-1 win over Nauset in their home opener game on March 31.
The game started slow as both teams got their footing, each scoring once in the first inning. The Vikings picked up steam as the game went on, scoring again in the second inning and ending the third up 8-1.
In the fourth inning, the team had hit its stride when Laura Pinkston hit a grand slam over the fences, bringing the team’s score to 14.
From there, the team’s streak only continued.
“These girls’ team chemistry is the best I’ve seen in a long time,” said Rudy Cadena.
The girls have worked hard, Cadena said. He said that rather than choosing team captains himself, he’s asked the players to be leaders more democratically and that a number of them have really stepped up. Some talented underclassmen are among the starters, Cadena said.
The team’s next home game will be on Wednesday, April 6, at 3:45 p.m. against Dighton-Rehoboth.
