The Mustangs (8-0 overall, 6-0 in Suffolk VI) overcame deficits of and 8-4 and 9-6 with a 15-hit attack. They tied it at 9 with three in the sixth, two scoring on Holly McNair’s second double and the tying run coming home on a sacrifice fly by Hailey LaGiudice (2-for-2, three RBIs).
The junior shortstop made a statement with her bat and her speed yesterday, going 3-for-5 with a two-run homer, a two-run single and two stolen bases to lead Carey to a 10-0 win over Island Trees in Conference ABC-I.
