GLOUSTER — The Eastern softball team earned a 15-1 win over the Trimble Tomcats on Wednesday. 

The Eagles scored two in the first, three in the second and one in the third to lead 6-1 before scoring eight in the fourth and one more in the fifth. 

Adelynn Stevens had Trimble's only hit, also scoring a first-inning run. 

Briana Orsborne took the loss, pitching the first four innings, with Ashlynn Hardy working the fifth. 

Ella Carelton nearly pitched a perfect game, allowing only the first-inning run, which was unearned thanks to an Eagles' error. She struck out two without walking a batter.
