The season ends for the Parkland Softball team

The Parkland Softball team was hoping to continue their run in states on Thursday but Spring-Ford had other ideas. The Rams, the District one 3rd place team, used a 4-run 2nd inning and never looked back as they beat Parkland 4-1 in the PIAA 6A quarterfinals.

The Trojans had chances in the 4th and 5th innings but Rams Pitcher Brianna Peck used a strikeout to end the 4th and a line-drive double play to close out the 5th. With the loss, Parkland ends the year at 25-3, having won both the league and district titles. Spring-Ford will now move to the state semi-finals as they improve their record to 26-1.

Parkland had a great ride led by their seniors but will have a new look next season as they will say goodbye to nine of them, including pitcher Kelly Dulaney, who went 23-3 this season striking out more than 200 batters. She will be playing at nearby Kutztown University next season.

The game was played at Moravian College’s Blue and Grey Field.
