Hodgdon scores 28 in softball victory over Fort Fairfield

HODGDON, Maine — Not to be outdone by the Hodgdon boys baseball win over Fort Fairfield earlier in the day, Hodgdon’s girls softball team logged an impressive victory of their own. 

The Hawks defeated visiting Fort Fairfield by a score of 28-8.

Hodgdon’s offensive turnout was led by Meghan Peters, who had three hits and five runs scored, along with Sadie Thompson, who had three singles, a home run and three RBIs. Aleyah Matheson also contributed significantly, with two singles, a double and home run with five runs scored. Delaney Little twice singled, doubled twice and had two stolen bases with four runs scored. Marissa Dow had two triples, a single and four RBI.

In addition to Matheson’s scoring contributions at the plate, Coach Mark Faulkingham also praised her play at the catcher position, on a day where temperatures had reached into the 90s with plenty of humidity. 

“Huge shout out to backstop Aleyah Matheson for a tremendous job behind the dish on such a hot day, “ said Faulkingham. “It was a super day for the Hodgdon softball program, with many more to follow. Our families and community truly supported the girls not only today, but throughout the season.”

For Fort Fairfield, scoring was done by Kourtney West, who had two hits and two runs scored, and Camryn Ala, who scored two runs after reaching base on two separate walks.
