SHREWSBURY – The Framingham Fury, girls u-16 softball team lost to Shrewsbury on Thursday night in the Twin Valley League semi-final.
The loss caps a remarkable run for the Framingham team and will mark the first time in 3 years that they will not be in the league final, which consists of 28 MetroWest and Central Mass cities and towns. Last year, the team was undefeated.
It was a tight affair early last night vs Shrewsbury.
The teams were deadlocked at 1-1 through 3 innings. Shrewsbury pulled ahead 5-1 in the 4th, but behind a mammoth home run by Sarah Spalti, which made the score 5-2. The game remained tight into the 6th inning when some uncharacteristic fielding miscues lead to unearned runs.
The loss notwithstanding, the season was a complete victory.
Starting in January the team began off-season workouts.
While all spring sports were a victim of COVID, the Fury continued working on their own and were ready to start up again once team practice was allowed.
The hallmarks of the team were energy, enthusiasm and support.
The team represented the city with great pride and continues to show a promising future.
Team members include: Brooke Anderson, Sophie Bailey, Ella Blaine, Alexis Deleon, Kayla Goodridge, Hannah Hoffman, Eden Manning, Julia Matz, Olivia Palmer, Gigi Patruno, Mya Quinones, Catherine Seay, Sarah Spalti, and Amber Welch.
