Housatonic shows no mercy in lop-sided win over Terryville

The Mountaineers continued their high-scoring season with a whopping 34 runs against the Kangaroos, bringing the season total to an even 100 runs in HVRHS’ first six games of 2024. Every starter touched home at least once against Terryville, and so did two bench players. 

HVRHS looked ready for a big game as the team got loose under clear blue skies, about 65 degrees at starting time. The breeze was cool, but the Mountaineers were all warmed up. 

“These girls are throwing some nice passes,” remarked a Terryville supporter observing the Mountaineers’ pre-game drills.  

HVRHS got to work immediately with their first eight batters reaching home. By the end of the first inning, the Mountaineers led the Kangaroos 9-1.  

They tacked on six more in the second, before an action-packed third inning upped the score to 26-5. The fourth inning was all Terryville. The Kangaroos put up four runs to HVRHS’ zero.  

Unrelenting, the Mountaineers added eight more in the fifth inning before ending the game on mercy rule (up by 15+ after the fifth inning).

Madison “Maddog” Dewitt drove in five runs on five hits for HVRHS, Deanna Portillo logged three hits and four RBIs, and Grace Riva batted in three runs on three hits. Abbie White brought home three runs on a single at bat, but she was hit by a pitch on each of her other three times at the plate. 

For Terryville, Molly Negro-Hawes hit a 3-RBI double, and TK Haldes brought in three runs with three hits. 

HVRHS moved to 4-2 this season. The Mountaineers will be on the road again when they play Shepaug Valley Friday, April 19.
