Gianna Genello delivered a double, the 200th hit of her high school career. That made her the all-time hits leader at Caldwell High School.

Pitcher Cayla Lombardi allowed eight hits and four earned runs as she picked up the complete-game victory. Lombardi struck out four batters.

For sixth-seeded Ridgefield Park, Dorian Capurso had three hits including a home run. Danielle Sinclair went 2-for-4 and drove in a pair of runs. The Scarlets conclude the season at 16-9.
