The team won Monday night's game in extra innings, 3-2.
A nail-biting extra inning led to a cathartic North Division Championship victory for the Malden High School varsity softball team Monday, as the team edged over Acton-Boxborough 3-2 – the team's first such victory in the history of Malden High School. The win comes after four straight playoff victories against traditional powerhouses like Central Catholic, and will send the team to their first regional championship against Bridgewater-Raynham Tuesday night. ESPN Boston reported that “both teams struggled defensively and both (team's) pitchers shined on the big stage” during the low-scoring game, which saw pitcher and senior class president Kiara Amos strike out 13 players. “It was a game of strong pitchers,” Malden head coach John Furlong…

The Malden High softball team's season came to an abrupt end yesterday, as they dropped a 5-2 decision against the Crusaders of Bishop Fenwick in an MIAA Division 1 North quarterfinal at Callahan Park.
This time of year, playoff seedings mean little. Regular season stats mean even less. What counts on the softball diamond in June is execution. And execution, or lack thereof, is why the Malden High softball team’s season came crashing to a halt yesterday against Bishop Fenwick. The Crusaders made the plays they needed to, and put the Golden Tornadoes on the back foot early with some well executed small ball, and consequently prevailed in the MIAA Division 1 North Sectional quarterfinals by a 5-2 margin at Callahan Park. Malden finishes what has been a very successful campaign with a record of 18-4, while Bishop Fenwick (17-4) takes on Acton-Boxboro on Wednesday in the semifinals Crusaders hurler Taylor Ahearn set the tone early, and kept …

But it was the bats that got the job done at Callahan Park yesterday as number three Malden walloped 14-seed Lexington 11-3 to seal a spot in the MIAA Division 1 North Sectional quarterfinals for the second straight season. The Golden Tornadoes fell to Central Catholic 3-2 on a heartbreaking obstruction call last year. “I’m very pleased with how we hit the ball today,” said Malden coach John Furlong. “We …
