Freedom 9, Northampton 2 – Rapid Recap 

Freedom softball team jumped out to a nine-run lead and posted a 9-2 home victory over Northampton on Monday in an Eastern Pennsylvania Conference quarterfinal.

Turning point: The Patriots didn't waste any time getting their bats going, piling up their nine runs in the first four innings. Freedom senior pitcher Shayla Peterson had an RBI double in the first inning and senior second baseman Lexie Szaro scored on an error in the frame to put the Patriots up 2-0. 

Top performers: Peterson went 3-for-4 with two doubles, a pair of RBIs and two runs. She struck out six and held Northampton to five hits. Patriots senior shortstop Cozette Smith went 2-for-3 with a pair of RBIs. Freedom senior center fielder Brenda Reninga reached base all three plate appearances and scored two runs. Szaro reached base three times and junior designated player Arielle Gonzalez had two hits. Northampton designated player Brandi Davidson went 2-for-3. 

What it means: The second-seeded Patriots advance to Wednesday's semifinals to play third-seeded Bethlehem Catholic, which beat Nazareth 9-1 on Monday. The Golden Hawks defeated Freedom in both of the teams' meetings this season. The Patriots improve to 18-3 on the season. The seventh-seeded Konkrete Kids fall to 11-9 and will get ready for next week's District 11 Class AAAA playoffs.
