  Through eight games, the Saugus High School softball team sits at 4-4 on the season. The Sachems were able to reach the .500 mark when they staged a mighty comeback against Pentucket on Monday at home. The Sachems fell behind 6-1 before coming alive to tally eight of the next 10 runs and come away with a dramatic 9-8 win.

  Starting pitcher Fallon Millerick once again threw a complete game. She struck out six batters and surrendered nine hits in her seven innings of work. Meanwhile, the offense was ignited by Gianna Costa, who drilled two hits and drove in two to lead the way. Single hits were supplied by Ava Rogers (RBI), Bella Natalucci (RBI), and Alexa Morello (2 RBIs).

  It was a big win for the Sachems, as they were coming off a tough 10-1 home loss to Beverly last Friday. In the Beverly game, Ryann Moloney provided most of the offense by drilling two of Saugus’s three total hits in the contest. Taylor Deleidi had the other hit.

  The day before, the storyline was much more positive for Saugus, which beat Somerville, 6-1, in a non-league clash. Millerick had perhaps her best pitching effort of the season so far. She gave up just four hits and fanned three in another complete-game performance. The offensive attack was highlighted by Costa’s three hits and two RBIs, as well as RBIs from Moloney, Felicia Reppucci and Rogers. Millerick also helped her own cause with two hits in the win.

  A scheduled game at Swampscott on Wednesday was postponed due to wet field conditions at Swampscott’s home field. The Sachems travel to face Winthrop, a team they scored 15 runs against in the season opener, this Friday, and follow that up with a game at Melrose on Monday, May 2.
