The Marjory Stoneman Douglas softball team picked up their biggest win of the season with a victory over Park Vista Community High School on Thursday.

The Cobras came in ranked fourth in the state and had been 5-0 this year before falling to the Eagles. 

“The girls played great in all aspects of the game,” said Head Coach Brian Staubly. “Great pitching and defense. We had clutch hitting in the first three innings of the game. We have played really well the last four games against some of the best teams in the state.”

Jesyne Espinal pitched a complete game, allowed only one run, and struck out eight. Olivia Alvarez knocked in a run in the first, but Park Vista responded to even the score. Then in the third, Alvarez had another RBI hit before Isabella Silva singled home a run. Kayleigh Cuccia also had two hits and scored a pair of runs.
