SOFTBALL

Blackstone Valley 8, Worcester Tech 2

Tuesday, May. 28, 2013, at Worcester

When the Blackstone Valley Tech softball team made the trip to Worcester Tech on Tuesday, the Beavers had two things on their mind: claiming the school’s first State Vocational title and exacting revenge on the Eagles. Valley Tech (17-3) accomplished both with an 8-2 victory on the road after having dropped a pair of one-run games to Worcester Tech (16-4) in the regular season. “We were really looking forward to this,” said coach Denise Medaglia, whose Beavers discovered their opponent for the final on their way back from a 7-6 semifinal win at Shawsheen Tech Monday. “On the bus, we found out that (Worcester Tech) won too, and we were like, ‘Oh, awesome, we get another shot at them.’” Alycia Wagner, the Beavers’ winning pitcher, knew her team was capable of beating the Eagles despite the two earlier losses. “We had the other two games in the bag, it was mental errors that gave it up for us,” Wagner said. “But we learned how to fix that, and now we’re back at it.” Wagner threw a complete game and allowed just five hits, one walk and one earned run, while striking out five.
