Cape Coral rips Northside
By TERRY JONES
Published July 24, 2005
BLOOMINGDALE - Cape Coral opened the 11-year-old softball state tournament with an 11-1 win over Northside (Carrollwood) on Saturday.
Cape Coral faces Plant City at 1 p.m. today. The winner advances to Tuesday's 6 p.m. final with the loser facing Northside in an elimination game at 6 p.m. Monday.
Northside took a 1-0 lead in the second. Catcher Christina Lonalo singled to left, stole second and third and came home on a wild pitch.
But Cape Coral used three hits and took advantage of four of Northside's 12 errors to take a 3-1 lead in the bottom of the inning.
Cape Coral sealed it in the third by scoring three runs on no hits, six walks and three errors.
"We have a much better team than (Saturday) indicated," Northside manager Jodi Weiss said. "They are strong defensively and offensively. They just got down and couldn't get back up."
Cape Coral manager Mike Novo said he was pleased with his team's performance but remained cautious.
"We had great defense. Our offense came alive. We had clutch pitching with defense backing her up," he said. "I was really surprised we made no mental errors. (Today) will be a tough game with Plant City, and the title game won't be easy either. Right now, our girls are just having fun."
