Now 11-0 in league play, the Gulls improve to 22-4 overall, while the Leopards drop to 3-9 in the CCC and 9-16 overall.
Endicott scattered six hits and plated five runs across the opening two innings, led by a three-RBI triple from Lauren Misiaszek. While Gulls' pitcher Michaela Hamill had a no-no going through the third, Wentworth was able to plate a run off a sacrifice fly from junior Rylee Rehders (Moreno Valley, Calif.), scoring Brianna Beverly (Pawcatuck, Conn.) for the 5-1 score. Junior Deanna DiPilato (Worcester, Mass.) ruined the no-hitter for Hamill in the bottom of the fifth with a single to left, but was left on base as the Leopards went down in order.
Endicott scored five runs in the top of the sixth, hitting the eight-run mercy after a sacrifice fly from Adrianna Favreau. Wentworth got one back on an RBI-groundout from Ceidilh Higgins, but Endicott added a run of insurance from Misiaszek after Favreaut's RBI to hold on to the eight-run lead.
Freshman Katie Verreault (Scarborough, Maine) and DiPilato were the only two Leopards to connect from Hamill's heat, while Higgins and Rehders knocked in both WIT runs. Sophomore Kayla DeMedeiros (South Dartmouth, Mass.) fanned one batter in 5.1 innings of work.
Gulls' pitcher Maggie Oram pitched her third shutout win of the season, allowing just three hits with three strikeouts. Higgins, DiPilato, and sophomore Brionna Meyers (Seabrook, N.H.) connected at the plate in the setback.
Misiaszek paced the Gulls with two RBI, as the Gulls collectively booked 10 hits, three coming from first baseman Olivia Odermatt.
