Coral Reef topples Palmetto, stays undefeated

 

Special to The Miami Herald

The Coral Reef softball team played an aggressive game against Palmetto to win 10-1 on Thursday.

The combination of Kylan Becker at shortstop, Lauren Blanco at first, Denver Keller at second and Dayna Wilson on the mound makes for a powerhouse infield.

“The last few games we have come together, but with this game I was nervous,” Wilson said. “Palmetto is our rival, and when we played on Feb. 19 we won, but 3-2 in the eighth.”

The Panthers remained scoreless until the fifth inning when they finally managed to break through the Barracudas’ defense.

Just in her second year, Becker was key in the ladoff role, scoring three runs and managing four steals.

“Since I am the lead, I just try to get on base and then let my teammates score me in,” Becker said.

The Barracudas remain undefeated through nine games.
