Freshman Allie Puatu was one of the few bright spots for the DHS softball team last week, as she allowed just six hits while striking out seven Hingham batters in her varsity debut in the Lady Dragons’ 3-2 win over the Harborwomen.

Not only did Puatu do it with her arm, she made a solid defensive play late in the game that prevented the tying run from scoring when she backed up an over-throw at third base.

 

The victory ended the Lady Dragons’ seven-game losing streak that started immediately following its season-opening victory over Plymouth North.

Sophomore first baseman Lindsey Cobb was the hitting star for Duxbury, going 3-for-3 in the win.

Other highlights during the week included Annie Gates allowing just five hits and striking out five in a 3-2 loss to North Quincy, while Christina Curley went 3-for-3 at the plate, and sophomore Alex Leaverton going 3-for-3 with a walk in an 11-5 loss to Middleboro that was tied at 5-5 in the fifth inning. Curley had two hits in that game also.

Now sporting a 2-7 record, the Lady Dragons will try to get back on track with three Patriot League home games this week, the final one being on Wednesday afternoon when they entertain Silver Lake at 4 p.m.
