TAUNTON, Mass. – After losing the first game of the season series to King Philip on a walkoff home run, it didn’t take long to see how ready the Taunton Tigers were to extract some revenge.

The hosts came out swimming, plating four runs in the bottom of the first inning, highlighted by a three-run home run, and then held off a late surge from the Warriors to earn a 4-3 win.

“I think they definitely ready to play tonight, this was an absolute must win for us when you think about the Hock championship,” said Taunton head coach Dave Lewry. “We came out with four runs in the first but kind of struggled a bit after that. We got some base runners but couldn’t come through with the clutch hit. They are a good team…that shortstop [Meghan Gorman] played a tremendous game for them, just tremendous. We just couldn’t get the base hit when we needed it [for insurance]. But the four runs held up for seven innings so we’ll take that.”

Junior Jaime Brown had a line drive double to lead off the bottom of the first, Kya Enos gave the Tigers a 1-0 lead with an RBI single through the left side, Mackenzie Handrahan took first after being hit by a pitch, and freshman Hanna Aldrich blasted a deep shot to center field for a three-run homer, giving Taunton a 4-0 lead.

“It’s a good spot for her,” Lewry said of Aldrich’s spot in the order. “She’s a clutch hitter for us but I don’t want her any further up in the lineup so there isn’t too much pressure on her. And she’s gotten a lot of big hits for us in the five-hole so I think its a real nice spot for her. And none bigger than tonight. When you hit the ball out to center, you crush the ball. It’s 220 out there, and that cleared by a good 20 feet if possible.”

The Tigers had a chance to add to their lead but KP starter Elise Pereira (6 IP, 8 H, 5 K) settled in nicely, only allowing five hits over the next five innings. And even when Taunton did get a hit, or looked like they might, KP shortstop Meghan Gorman had a handful of highlight reel plays to stall Taunton’s attack.

For example, in the second inning, the Tigers had runners on first (Brown via a walk) and second (Alexa White leadoff double) with just one out. But Pereira induced a pop up to center field and then Gorman robbed Enos of a hit with a diving catch at short.

King Philip got on the board in the top of the fourth inning. Pereira helped her own cause with a one-out double to center and courtesy runner Liliana Rolfe came around to score on an RBI single from Jess Bonner to make it 4-1.


The Warriors had a chance to cut into the lead more when Brianna Lacy singled to get runners on first and second but Taunton freshman Alexa White (5.2 IP, 9 H, 3 K) got a strikeout to escape the jam.

It looked like Taunton was going to add to its lead in the bottom of the fourth when Alexa and Kelsey White had had back-to-back singles to begin the inning but Gorman snagged a line drive and got the tag at second for the force out for an unassisted double play.

Sydney Phillips led off with a double in the fifth and made it to third with two outs, but White once again came up with the right pitch, getting a fly ball that senior centerfielder Liana Duarte tracked down and made the catch over her shoulder just before the fence.

“Liana is clearly our best outfielder, this is her fourth year in the outfield for us, Lewry said. “When a ball is hit to her, I don’t have to hold my breath. And Mack is developing into a real solid left fielder, she keeps the ball in front of her and makes the plays. And Alexa is an infielder who’s learning how to play out there and she’s doing a nice job out there. Liana definitely made some nice plays for us today. A couple of those balls, they could have been trouble and been over her heard but she made the plays.”

But an inning later, King Philip’s offense did cash in, pushing across two runs. Jess Bonner singled and moved to second on a groundout. Lacy reached after an infield throwing error, allowing Bonner to come home to make it 4-2. Courtesy runner Majorie Guerrier stole second and came in to score on a two-out single from Nicole Carter.

Sophomore Jaylin Couto came in to relieve White, inducing a pop up behind the plate that Enos made an acrobatic play on to get the third out.

“It’s hard a decision for me to get used to making because I haven’t had that in the past,” Lewry said of using multiple pitchers. “When you have a pitcher out there, she’s throwing a good game, it’s hard to pull her and put someone cold. You just hope they don’t come in and walk three batters in a row. But Jaylin did her job, she does throw hard, she had some nice stuff. The whole key there was to throw quality strikes and she did that.”

Alexa White picked up her third hit of the day, her second double, with two outs but Pereira picked up a strikeout to end the threat in the bottom of the sixth.

Faith Turinese singled with two outs, and Guerrier stole second to get into scoring position, but Couto got a fly ball to center for the final out.

Taunton softball (10-2 Hockomock, 11-2 overall) moves into a first place tie with the Warriors with the win, though KP has a game in hand.

Pereira Provides Heroics, KP Rally Stuns Taunton

PLAINVILLE, Mass. – Heading into the bottom of the seventh inning of Saturday afternoon’s first meeting between the preseason Kelley-Rex title favorites at the Plainville Athletic League fields, King Philip had been held without a hit by Taunton freshman pitcher Kelsey White.

The Warriors had the middle of the order due up for the final at-bat and plenty of confidence on the bench that a comeback was still possible.

Click here for a photo gallery from this game.

A lead-off single by Meg Gorman broke up the no-hitter, catcher Brianna Lacy battled for a two-out walk to keep the game alive and senior pitcher Elise Pereira, who had not gotten the ball out of the infield in her first two at bats, drilled a two-out, walk-off three-run homer over the left-field fence.

Pereira’s blast gave KP a 3-2 victory, stunned the Tigers, and gave the Warriors an early edge in the race for the league title, which KP has won 11 times in the past 12 years.

“You’ve just got to be loud and you’ve got to try and create the energy if you can’t do it with the bats,” Pereira explained. “We knew that was our last shot, so we gave it all we had.”

When asked if she had learned anything helpful from her two previous at-bats, Pereira said, “She was throwing all fastballs inside, so I backed off the plate a little so I could get my hands inside and she threw it right there.”

Coming into the game, both teams had been relying on potent offenses, but Saturday was a pitcher’s duel, as White and Pereira were both keeping hitters off-balance by hitting spots and mixing speeds.

“I thought there would be more runs today,” said KP coach Norm Beauchemin, “but it was excellent pitching on both ends. It was fun. It was a fun game.”

MacKenzie Handrahan lined a single to left to start the second and, after a strikeout, she barely beat Gorman to the bag after the KP shortstop made a superb diving stop behind second. With two on and no outs, Pereira got a strikeout and a fly ball to left to get out of the jam.

Taunton broke the deadlock in the fourth inning. Kya Enos got it started by drawing a walk and advancing to second on a comebacker from Handrahan. A wild pitch moved the Taunton senior catcher to third and with a 3-0 count, freshman Hanna Aldrich dropped down a perfect suicide squeeze bunt to get the run home.

It was a game with few mistakes, as both defenses were just about flawless through the first few innings. In the sixth, Taunton added an insurance run and again it was the middle of the order that came through.


With one out, Enos lined a single to left and Handrahan followed by driving a bouncing ball through the left side. Enos stole third on a ball in the dirt and Aldrich had a swinging bunt up the first base line, which she turned into a hit by avoiding the tag of Brooke Taute, and earned her second RBI of the game.

Taunton coach Dave Lewry said, “We didn’t hit any great shots but we did what we had to do to get the runs in there. For a ninth grader she does pretty good job. Our offense revolves around Kya, we all know that, and she’s having a great year for us so far.”

KP had little going offensively. After getting a runner to second in the first and another baserunner in the second, the Warriors did not get another player on base until two outs in the sixth when Sydney Phillips reached on an error. White fielded a pop up in front of the plate to close out the inning and preserve the two-run lead.

“She was hitting her spots beautifully,” said Lewry of White’s performance. “We were in and out, up and down a little bit, and she might have gotten a little tired because it was her first time going past five innings actually. She acted like an ace today.”

The Tigers could have put the game away in the seventh. Alexa White ripped a single down the left-field line and Kelsey White drew a four-pitch walk. Jaime Brown dropped down a sacrifice bunt to move both into scoring position and an error on a popped up bunt by Liana Duarte loaded the bases with one out.

Enos hit one to Taute at first, who was able to get the lead runner at the plate, and Handrahan bounced back to Pereira to end the threat. Pereira scattered six hits in the game, while striking out seven (many on her change-up) in what both she and her coach called her best start of the season.

Pereira said, “This was my best outing of the season. I learned a lot from the last couple games, Newton North and Feehan, and learned where I needed to put the ball and pitches I needed to throw to get them where I wanted the batters to be.”

“We got a couple of gifts there to load the bases with one out and had the three, four hitters coming up but it didn’t happen,” said Lewry of the missed opportunity to add insurance runs. “Then you walk a batter in the seventh, and she pitched a fabulous game, but put the runner on and home run and it’s over.”

Gorman started the rally in the bottom of the seventh with a single to left, her second time reaching base in the game. After a pop up to Aldrich at short and a liner right to Handrahan in left, Taunton was one out from the win. Lacy put a scare into the Tigers ripping a long foul ball to left that would have been gone had it been pulled a little less. She fouled off several White pitches and fought her way to a hard-earned walk that brought the winning run to the plate.

“I think Bri’s at-bat was the big one,” said Beauchemin. “That helped Elise realize we’re making good contact now.” Pereira added, “Her at-bat definitely wore out the pitcher a little and then I got a great pitch.”

Beauchemin was asked if he had any advice for Pereira before her final at-bat and he replied, “Nope. Not at all. I don’t want to jinx anybody.”

Pereira fell behind but she squared up the pitch she was looking for and crushed it over the left-field fence to the right of the scoreboard and lifted KP to an improbable win when it seemed like the Warriors were going to fall behind their biggest rivals in the division.

King Philip (5-2, 4-0) will be on the road to face Stoughton on Monday, while Taunton (5-2, 4-2) will try to bounce back on Monday at Foxboro.
