The Tigers held bragging rights on their division rivals…right up until Monday night.
The third time proved to be the charm for the Warriors. Kali Magane struck out 11 and allowed only three hits and fellow senior Ashley Hession blasted a three-run homer in the second inning to lift KP to a 3-0 victory in the Div. 1 South quarterfinal at Jack Tripp Field.
“Oh gosh. We wanted to leave everything on the field,” said Hession about how the Warriors felt coming into Monday’s game. “I got up there and I just…we had to do it for the team, you couldn’t think about yourself, and we did.”
The defining inning began with a leadoff walk by Brooke Taute and a single by Caeli Bench that put two on with no outs.
Taunton pitcher Aimee Kistner got a line out to left and another line drive right back to the circle to give her a chance of escaping the jam, but her two-strike rise ball to Hession caught too much of the plate and the St. Joseph’s commit deposited the pitch over the left field fence.
“She caught a rise ball that possibly didn’t rise as much as we had hoped,” said Taunton coach Dave Lewry, “and got it up around the letters and hit the ball out and that’s the ball game.”
Hession admitted that she had no idea that it was going to be a homer when it left her bat. She said, “I didn’t realize it was gone, I really didn’t. Not until I hit second base and then I knew. It was amazing.”
Magane dominated the Tigers from start to finish and made sure that Hession’s one swing was enough to earn the win. She struck out the side in the top of the first and struck out two hitters in an inning twice.
The Tigers got a two out walk in the second, but did not get their first hit until the fourth on a single by Meghan Navarro, which followed Kistner’s walk and was the only time that Taunton had more than one base runner in an inning. Magane stuck out Kya Enos and got Sarah Bagge on a soft liner over second that Hession chased down to end the threat.
“She beat us tonight. There’s no doubt about it,” said Lewry. “We didn’t even hit her well in the two games we won; we just got enough bats on the ball to score a couple of runs.
“In three games we probably squared four balls up. She’s good…the kid can pitch.”
KP coach Norm Beauchemin added, “Dominant, dominant. She’s getting more and more determined. Mentally stronger, but not physically stronger; I think she’s reached her peak.”
Taunton also got a hit from Katie Van Zandt with one out in the fifth, but the inning ended when Liana Duarte grounded to second baseman Meghan Gorman who turned a 4-3 double play. That was the last Tigers base runner, as Magane retired the final seven hitters.
“The first game they only had two hits,” said Beauchemin. “They may have had three hits today, so actually they may have hit her better today than the first game but we didn’t make any errors…and we scored runs.”
Kistner had a rough start to the game but seemed to get stronger as the innings wore on and turned it into another pitcher’s duel. She limited the Warriors to just two hits after the second inning (a single in the fifth and one in the seventh) and finished with three strikeouts, including back-to-back K’s to end the sixth.
“Aimee battled like she does every single game,” said Lewry. “She had trouble with a couple of pitches early on, couldn’t get things to work, but she just finds a way to battle through things.”
Lewry added that he is going to miss the influence of seniors Jordan Wade, Navarro, and Kistner, who have played at least four years on varsity and won a pair of league titles.
He said, “I said to the other kids coming back next year, let’s remember what they established. Lets remember the teamwork they emphasized. Lets remember the hard work they were willing to put in every single day. We’ve got to keep that same level of spirit.”
Beauchemin was basking in the moment after beating the Tigers. He said, “It was nice to see the seniors come through…If we don’t win another game, this one’s sweet, but I think we’re going on.”
When asked if he felt comfortable potentially playing the next two games at Jack Tripp Field, he replied with a smile, “We’re very comfortable here. We’ve played a lot of games here and had a lot of success in the past.”
King Philip (20-4) will face the winner of Hopkinton/Walpole on Wednesday at 5 p.m.

MANSFIELD, Mass. -For the first time in five seasons of competing in the Hockomock, Taunton softball can proclaim itself the best following a 12-0 victory at Mansfield on Monday afternoon that clinched a one-loss league campaign and at least a one-game advantage over King Philip.
It is not the first Hockomock title in the program’s history (the Tigers and Warriors shared the title in 2014), but it is the first time that Taunton will finish the season alone in first place in the Kelley-Rex division, ending a streak of nine straight titles by KP.
“It means a lot to us,” said Taunton coach Dave Lewry. “It was nice getting a share a couple years ago but we’ve been on top all year and to drop back and potentially lose it or end up in another tie was not what we were looking for, so this one feels good.
“KP has dominated it for so many years and it just feels good to be able to come in and take it away from them, for a year anyway.”
Senior Jordan Wade, who is in her fifth season with the Tigers, added, “We haven’t been on top since we entered into the Hockomock and, this is a great division, to know we’re one of the best in this division means a lot and I think it’s a good push for us to go into states.”
Taunton had the opportunity to clinch the title on Sunday but lost for the at Milford (its first loss of the season), which added even more motivation to not allow the outright title slip away as it has in the past couple of years.
Wade said, “We came in this year and we just wanted it. The loss yesterday just made us want it even more. We did not want to lose today.
“We’re a confident team and we used that loss yesterday as fire, as energy to come out today. We needed that loss just to let us know that people are out there, just like us, wanting to go into the tournament and wanting to go far into states.”
The Tigers did not waste any time putting themselves in a position to clinch the title, scoring four runs in the top of the first.
Freshman Jaime Brown was moved up to the top of the order, replacing Liana Duarte, and that switch paid immediate dividends. Brown lined a lead-off triple to right and would score on a wild pitch. After Aimee Kistner singled and Meghan Navarro reached on an error, sophomore Kya Enos blasted a three-run homer to left center, using her speed to score standing up.
“We were talking about that, the coaches, before the game – lets jump on top early,” said Lewry. “Kya obviously was huge. She’s been clutch for us all year. She doesn’t feel pressure; she just comes and plays.”
Mansfield had runners on base in the second and third innings against Kistner, who was pitching her second game in as many days, but both times the Taunton pitcher got the out that she needed to escape unscathed.
Those missed opportunities would be the last ones that the Hornets would get. Kistner seemed to get stronger as the game wore on, mixing her pitches and increasing her velocity in the later innings. She retired the final 13 hitters that she faced.
“I was a little worried because it was back-to-back days,” Lewry explained, referencing some nagging injuries that Kistner is managing. “I was a little concerned that she’d feel the effects from yesterday, but she did a great job for us today. She’s clutch; she can dig down when she needs to.”
Mansfield would finish with just one hit, a third inning single by Megan Letendre. Kara Bendanillo walked, Maddie Letendre reached on an error, and Liz Mackin reached on a fielder’s choice. That was it for the home team.
Meanwhile, the Taunton lineup showed that it has pop from all positions. Duarte led off the fifth with a bunt single followed by an infield single from Brown. Wade drove her in with a single to left and then Kistner (3-for-4) cleared the bases with a triple to center. Madi Letendre retired back-to-back hitters, but Sarah Bagge brought in courtesy runner Hailey Medeiros to make it 8-0.
Lewry said, “That’s been a big thing for us all year is that we have gotten offense out of our entire order. It’s nice to see it come around again.”
Katie Van Zandt singled to start the sixth and would come home on a throwing error, while Wade reached on an infield single, stole second, moved up on the error and would score her second run of the game on Kistner’s third run drive in.
In the top of the seventh, Duarte (2-for-4) lined a triple to right field, scoring Bagge and Van Zandt and making Lewry look like a genius for moving her down to the nine-hole on Monday.
“That worked out pretty nicely,” he said. “Liana’s been struggling a little bit the last couple weeks…so I figured just take a little pressure off her and Jaime hits no matter where you put her. It seemed to pay off.”
The season has been one big pay-off for the Tigers, who clinched the Kelley-Rex title with their 14th shutout of the spring. Taunton has outscored opponents 220-16 and finished a perfect 10-0 against teams from the division.
Taunton (19-1, 15-1) will close out the regular season against Dighton-Rehoboth and city rival Coyle & Cassidy. Mansfield (11-7, 8-7) finishes up with Holliston and Canton.

MILFORD, Mass. – In the middle of the season, Milford went through a rough patch, what head coach Steve DiVitto labeled a “lull.” The Hawks followed up a big win against defending state champion St. Peter Marian with a loss to North Attleboro. They beat Sharon but then were beaten 12-0 by King Philip. A win against Foxboro was was followed by a loss to Franklin.
At the beginning of last week, DiVitto spoke to his team and told them it was time to get past the “Dog Days” of the schedule and start ramping up to be ready to go in the tournament.
In front of a huge crowd and with an intensity that felt more like June than the middle of May the Hawks responded on Sunday afternoon with a 7-3 victory over previously undefeated Taunton in a battle of Hockomock League champions.
“We wanted to play a complete game and we knew it would take a complete game to beat them,” said DiVitto. “We wanted to come out and play our brand of softball and compete…and we were fortunate enough to come out on top.
“We said today was a great test to come out and see where we are at and we’re happy with the result.”
Taunton took the lead in its first at-bat. Jordan Wade reached on a fielder’s choice with one out and moved up to second on a groundout. Fellow five-year starter Meghan Navarro provided the big hit with a single to center that brought home the opening run.
While Milford entered the game having scored 171 runs, the Tigers had only allowed nine all season. So, an early one-run deficit felt like a lot more to the Hawks.
In the bottom of the second, they received a jolt of life from one of their seniors. Kaitlyn DeCapua opened the inning with a single to left off Aimee Kistner. Megan Jacques was up next and the catcher blasted a two-run homer over the left field fence (her first home run of the season) to put Milford in front.
“We needed something. Something needed to be ignited,” said Jacques. “Once that happened, I think it trickled down among the team and everyone had a fire lit in them.”
DiVitto added, “That was a big boost for us and it proved to the girls that we can compete and we can come out on top if we play our game.”
Kelley Reichert started the game for the Hawks, who were playing their fourth game in six days, but after Wade led-off the third with a single, DiVitto made the change and brought in Ali Atherton. She would allow only three hits in five innings of relief.
One of those hits tied the game in the third, as Kya Enos lined a double that Maggie Farrell laid out for but missed by inches in left center. Wade came around to score her second run of the game.
It stayed tied 2-2 heading into the bottom of the fifth and the game was being played at a tempo and at a competitive level befitting two teams that have the potential to add to their Kelley-Rex and Davenport division titles.
Enos made a sliding grab of a sinking liner to end the third, after Kistner, Wade and Katie Van Zandt turned a 1-6-3 double play. Navarro was also excellent in the field, creating all three outs in a perfect fourth inning and making a nice pick of a liner to start the sixth. Jill Powers and Emily Piergustavo made similar plays in the field for the Hawks.
The wheels fell off for Taunton in the fifth. With one out, Wade made a rare throwing error to allow Shannon Cormier to reach. Kate Irwin was next and she bunted past the charging Jaime Brown at third for an infield single. Cormier would come in to score on a second Taunton error and an inning that should have already been over continued for the Hawks offense.
Milford made the Tigers pay. Jess Tomaso singled to center and that scored Irwin and two batters later DeCapua cleared the bases with a single that plated a pair of runs and pushed the Milford lead to 6-2.
“We’ve played a lot of great teams and it’s just that; its the team that can capitalize on the mistakes that’s going to win,” said DiVitto.
Taunton coach Dave Lewry remarked, “We haven’t had an inning like that all year, especially where the snowball goes down the hill and it just gets bigger and bigger and it did that.
“Maybe it’s good to get it out of our system and not in tournament time, but they’re a real good team, they hit the ball, and if you give them five, six outs in an inning you’re going to have a tough time.”
With two outs in the sixth, Cormier again provided Milford with punch at the bottom of the order with a triple that landed just inside the line in left. She scored on Irwin’s second infield single in as many innings.
DiVitto explained, “There are no easy outs in our lineup one through nine. Shannon Cormier is a great bat in the nine-hole and turning the lineup over.”
Navarro picked up her second RBI of the game with a single to score Liana Duarte in the seventh, but that was as close as Taunton would get, as Atherton finished the game with her third strikeout.
“This is one of the better teams that we’ve seen this year and even losing I think it’s good for us because we had to play with more intensity,” said Lewry. “Maybe, we just lost a little bit of that edge and this can help us get it back.”
Jacques said, “This is a really great win. Everyone did their job and they did it well and I think that was the ultimate deciding factor between who won and lost.
“I think this gave us a little belief that we can beat anybody. This whole week we’ve been having a playoff mindset and this was the topping to the cake that we’re ready.”
Taunton (18-1, 14-1) can clinch its first outright Hockomock title with a win at Mansfield on Monday. Milford (15-4,12-3) will wrap up the regular season against Stoughton on Tuesday.
