WOODBRIDGE \u2014 Amity junior Elizabeth Brownfield lives in the moment. That thought process went a long way Thursday afternoon, keeping the Amity softball team on a roll. Brownfield, who had grounded out earlier in the game, laced a two-out, two-run double in the fourth inning to propel Amity to its eighth win in nine games with a 3-1 victory over North Haven. \u201cI had grounded out earlier in the game and I was not thinking about that,\u201d Brownfield said. \u201cI tried to stay loose and be ready to hit. This is a pretty big game for us. This reaffirms how we feel going into the SCC\u2019s. It helps when you beat a team like that.\u201d Brownfield\u2019s clutch hit was all starting pitcher Grace Whitman needed as the senior went the distance. She allowed one run on five hits, struck out three and walked one. \u201cI thought she (Whitman) was amazing,\u201d Amity coach Sara Hale said. \u201cShe was really on today. She did a really good job. She was in control.\u201d North Haven (15-4) had runners on base in two of the first three innings, but could not capitalize. Whitman retired the side on four pitches in the fourth, before the Indians scored their only run in the fifth. Eryn Sheeley led off the fifth with a walk, moved to second on a sacrifice, and scored on Haylee Garthwait\u2019s two-out single to right. The inning could have been bigger for the Indians, but a grounder in the hole by Peyton Davis was snared by Amity shortstop Nicole Koshes, who fired to third for the force to end the threat. \u201cThat was a key play right there,\u201d North Haven interim coach Karen Castagnola said of Koshes. \u201cWe had a rally going. She killed it. They are a good defensive team. They are a good team. We just didn\u2019t get the big hit today.\u201d Sheeley then led off the seventh with a single to left, but Whitman retired the next three batters in order to end the game and snap North Haven\u2019s nine-game winning streak. \u201cWe are 15-4,\u201d Castagnola said. \u201cIt\u2019s been a good run and we hope to continue that. Our defense was good today and Lauren (Card) was spot on. We just didn\u2019t hit.\u201d After two solid defensive plays by North Haven\u2019s Carly Brown kept Amity off the scoreboard early on, the Spartans, ranked eighth in the GameTimeCT Top 10 poll, took a 1-0 led in the third. With two outs, Dani Nordyk doubled to right and Carly Marchitto followed with a single to right to score Nordyk for a 1-0 lead. Amity (16-3) gave Whitman some cushion in the fourth with two runs off North Haven pitcher Lauren Card. Rachael Crow started the rally with a one-out single to left, Leia Foyer reached on an infield single, and both scored on Brownfield\u2019s double. \u201cThat was a huge hit,\u201d Hale said of Brownfield. \u201cWe have so much confidence in the whole lineup, one through nine. Our third hitter gets a base hit for our first run and our ninth hitter gets in two runs with a hit. We have talked about that all season long\u201d Card was solid in the circle for the Indians, going the distance and allowing three runs on six hits, while walking three and striking out four.
