The last time that the Falmouth High School softball team played against Dennis-Yarmouth a couple of weeks ago, the Clippers could have lost. They won a close game, 4-3, the tightest contest that they’ve had all season long.
FHS was not about to let that happen again.
Behind a dominant performance from starting pitcher Phoebe Cutter, the Clippers rolled to an easy win in the second game of the year against D-Y, improving to 9-0 overall on the year after besting the Dolphins 9-0 at home on Senior Day.
The Clippers are supposed to have a makeup game at some point with Nantucket High, but that game has not yet been scheduled. As of now the team’s finale contest is Friday, June 11, against Mashpee High School in Mashpee.
Cutter cut down the Dolphins all day long, striking out 12 while allowing just one hit and three walks. Julia Hicks led off the third inning with a single, and that was it for hits for D-Y. The team got single walks in the second, fourth and sixth innings.
Falmouth, on the other hand, was able to put up three multi-run innings. The Clippers plated four in the third to open the game up, then added three more in the fourth to put it away. They tacked on two more in the sixth for good measure.
First baseman Maci Griesbauer had three singles in four trips to lead the team. She also drove home a run. Cutter more than helped her own cause by going 2-for-4 with a double and four runs batted in. Haylee Girourd and Madison Mahoney also had two hits each for the Clippers.
