Salem girls beat Dover, stay unbeaten in softball
The Blue Devils (8-0) are the only unbeaten team in Division I. Dover fell to 5-3.
Dover was led by by pitcher Molly St. Germain, who went 2 for 3 with two runs batted in and walk.
Longtime Salem coach Harold Sachs called the game one of the toughest of this season. “There was a time where we looked like we were going to break, but we pulled it out,” said Sachs.
The Blue Devils responded in the bottom of the third with three runs of their own, two of them on a base hit by Wallace. Salem led 4-3 after three.
Towler, who entered the game in the third inning, shut the door on Dover threats in the fifth, sixth and seventh, striking out four and stranding five Green Wave base runners.
Said Sachs: “She’s a junior. She’s starting to really find her way on the mound. She’s a leader when she’s out there and I think people are comfortable playing behind her.”
