So far this season, it seems to be the Audubon softball team is that has found several different ways to win a game. The Green Wave started out their season by winning the first eight games on their schedule and during that time, Audubon has won with both pitching and by their bats. After suffering their only loss of the season to Hammonton, Audubon was looking to pick up their fourth win in a row against Gateway. Kiersten Hughes was the starting pitcher that kept the Gators off the scoreboard and watched Audubon’s offense scored all of their runs during the second inning. From that point on, the defense took care of things on the field and Audubon would cruise to the 8-0 victory.
Ever since their twelve run loss to Sterling just over a week ago, Gateway went on a three game winning streak. Those wins move them close to the conference lead Green Wave in the standings. Each one of Gateway’s victories were against conference opponents and they were looking to add one more win against Audubon. But Audubon was also keeping pace with wins over Sterling, Lindenwold and Haddon Township and extend their conference record to 8-0. Eight was magic number today as that was the number of times Audubon scored during their second at bat in a game played at Gateway. From that point on, Hughes would settle in and pick up the victory for Audubon.
