KILLINGLY — Freshman Maddie Stepski drove in four runs and Amanda Arruda homered as Stonington High beat Killingly, 14-4, in an ECC Division II softball game Saturday.
"We just saw the ball well," Stonington coach Ann-Marie Houle said. "Maggie [Constantine] had a great day at the plate — 4 for 4 and they were line drives. ... We were glad to go up there and play well."
Constantine had two RBIs to go with her four hits. Arruda's homer was a solo shot over the center fielder's head in the fifth inning. Arruda was 3 for 5 with a triple, two RBIs and three runs scored.
Colette Dreher and Shea O'Connor each added two RBIs. The Bears led 8-0 after two innings. They finished with 15 hits.
Elaina Previty started and pitched four innings to earn the win. She allowed three runs, two earned, on eight hits. Cayla Beverly threw three innings and gave up one run on two hits.
Killingly dropped to 6-11, 1-6 ECC Division II. Stonington (9-7, 4-2) next hosts Waterford on Monday in the annual Play for the Cure game starting at 5 p.m.
