The Dulaney softball team had an opportunity slip away in extra innings at defending Class 4A state champion North County last week.

The Lions put that lesson to good use yesterday at Baltimore County rival Catonsville, scoring two runs in the top of the eighth inning to come away with a 4-2 upset over the No. 6 Comets.

Dulaney pitcher Sarah Moetter struck out 11 and drove home the winning run with a sacrifice fly to outlast Catonsville's All- Metro senior pitcher Amanda Fefel. It was the first time the Lions defeated Catonsville since Fefel's arrival four years ago. Both teams are now 2-1.

Katie Cole (two doubles, one RBI, one run scored) and Michelle Barwick (two doubles, one run scored) led the Lions' nine-hit attack.

Brittany Frankenfeld started the Lions' eighth inning on second base with the international rule in play, moved to third on a sacrifice bunt from Barwick before Moetter drove her home with a fly ball to left field. An insurance run followed with Cole doubling and then scoring on a single from Jamie Eckenrode.

It was an impressive response after the Comets had tied the game at 2 in the bottom of the seventh inning on a leadoff homer by April Terzi.

"We've been working real hard on hitting and it's starting to pay off." said Dulaney coach Lori Ryan. "There's no real stars on the team - we"re just a real solid team that plays well together." Glenn Graham
