Scarborough softball continued its 2015 roll this past week, winning a pair of at-home postseason matchups to extend their untarnished record. The Red Storm dropped first the Eagles of Windham, 12-4 on Thursday, and then, in something of a nailbiter, the Tigers of Biddeford, 6-5 on Saturday.

Those victories bump the Red Storm to 18-0 on the season, and usher them all the way to Wednesday’s 7 p.m. Western Maine Final vs. Thornton – a rematch of last year that should prove mightily exciting.

No. 4 Biddeford at No. 1 Scarborough

The Tigers actually jumped out, in spectacular fashion, to a 1-0 lead in the teams’ semifinal on Saturday afternoon, Abbie Paquette launching a two-out, solo homer off Red Storm starting pitcher Lilly Volk.

Scarborough unleashed in the third, however, grabbing an advantage that Biddeford would prove unable to chew through. The Storm put up six quick runs on a bevy of hits by the likes of Volk, Laura Powell, Abbie Murrell and others.

Suddenly, the Storm had all the momentum, and the Tigers were playing catchup. They did pretty well at it, managing to lop four runs off Scarborough’s advantage as the game progressed. They could not, however, grab the crucial tying run, let alone a go-ahead point, and the Storm held on to win.
