FCIAC softball Locked in on a title
FAIRFIELD — St. Joseph’s Payton Doiron could be excused for not being aware of how dominant her no-hit pitching performance was when the No 1-seeded Cadets defeated cross-town rival and No. 2 seed Trumbull, 1-0, in the FCIAC championship game at Sacred Heart University on Friday.
Afterall, Doiron had walked the bases loaded in the first inning. She got out of that jam, and then let her defense help retire 19 consecutive batters.
“I got it out of my system, stayed confident, and relied on my defense,” said Doiron, a right-handed junior.“I like to think one batter at a time and try not to get to ahead of myself. That kept me distracted (from thinking about the no-no). The defense always has my back.”
