Palmetto opens its softball season with a 7-1 rout of Lourdes


Looking to make another deep postseason run this year after losing in the state championship game last year, the Palmetto softball team began its 2013 campaign on the right track.

The Panthers beat Lourdes 7-1 in their season opener Monday afternoon at Palmetto Bay.

Palmetto scored four runs in the top of the third inning and then added two more in the fourth to give it a 6-0 lead it would not surrender.

Amanda Guglietta, on top of earning the win as Palmetto’s starting pitcher, also went 2 for 3 at the plate with a double and an RBI. Gabby Spallone went a perfect 3 for 3 with a double and two runs.

The win over the Bobcats was a rematch of last year’s Region 4-8A quarterfinal, which Palmetto also won 12-3.
