New City-Suffern-Congers used a third consecutive no-hitter over the weekend to advance to the championship of the 9-10 softball all-star state tournament.
Kaitlyn Fudge has started all three games, and she pitched all six innings on Saturday in NCSC’s 9-0 win against Oneida in Syrcause. NCSC Coach Eddie Fudge said Kaitlyn Fudge’s no-hitter remained in tact thanks to some great defense from Megan Keveney and Samantha Kaner.
Fudge hasn’t given up a run so far in tournament play, and NCSC hasn’t lost a game in the district, section and so far state tournament.
Offensively, Kristen Tarantino blasted a home run and drove in two runs, while Kimberly Kaufman went 2-3 in the win.
NCSC can win the state title Monday at 1 p.m. against Half Hollow Hills. In its first game of the state tournament, NCSC beat Half Hollow Hills 2-0. Since NCSC is undefeated, to win the state title Half Hollow Hills would have to beat NCSC twice.
