Penn Manor pulled away for a 14-8 triumph over the host Solanco softball team Tuesday, April 16.
Solanco slugged four home runs – two by Becca Foulk and one each by Sierra Dean and Taryn Britigan – in a 15-0 four-inning triumph over visiting McCaskey Wednesday afternoon, April 10.
"You got the result you were looking for," Solanco coach Brett Miller said. "It's the simplest way of saying it. They threw the ball in and we hit some really long fly balls. If we had a fence, they would have cleared fences."
Solanco's softball team is knocking the cover off the ball.
The Golden Mules have scored 67 runs in their last three games including a total of 39 in two wins last week.
Solanco (3-1) clobbered visiting Ephrata 20-0 in three innings Wednesday, April 3.

Section rival Elizabethtown posted a 13-2 triumph over host Solanco in five innings in the curtain-jerker Wednesday, March 27.
Solanco's softball team will look different than originally planned, but the Mules' lofty expectations never change.
"The goal for the team is always the same," coach Brett Miller said. "Win the game. Players can have individual goals but the team's goal is to win the game. If you put enough of those wins together people start handing you hardware."
