St. James and Kapaun were tied at 1-1 through four innings in Game 1 before the Crusaders scored four runs in the fifth on three singles, two walks and two errors.
"We're okay", C-FC coach Steve Lyga said. Batting third, Burns has the protection of Yaya Spencer hitting second and Juliet Bernstein batting fourth, creating a middle of the order that can compete with anyone on Long Island. When I have all three pitches going, it's pretty easy to get people out, keep people off balance so they have to keep guessing at the plate.
"We made too many mistakes", Gantt said.
"Every single time we played them past year, we would play a really good game, but they would always find a way to beat us in the end", Moran said.
The Pioneers pushed across single markers in the fifth and sixth innings to knot the score at 4-4 and then scored three times in the seventh inning to set the final score. Kamden Dulesky popped up to Linsly pitcher, Kelsey Smith. At the bottom of the inning, Marley Eller, outfielder and pre-med freshman, made it home when Griffin was at bat.
However, the Bulldogs got things going in the next inning. Amen scored on an error, and junior infielder Carson Tallman added an RBI-single.
Downin and the Cougars continued their hot streak on Monday, as Downin drove in four runs and also pitched five shutout innings in a 10-0, five-inning victory over previously unbeaten North County. Bailey Brown then walked to load the bases once again, before Gretchen Gragg and Stephanie Martin hit back-to-back two-run singles to put the Warriors ahead, 6-3.
"It was pretty even except for two innings", Linsly assistant coach Darryl Crews said.
Maroons pitcher Walker Nowers allowed just five hits and struck out seven. Kendahl Pruitt homered over the left-field fence for the 'Canes in the fourth inning. We didn't hit it as consistently as we needed, but hopefully it will help us with a big conference stretch this week. That's nice, but that hurt us a little bit. The Mustangs got a walk-off home run from catcher Riley Suits to defeat David Crockett, 2-1, in the semi-finals, before winning over Cookeville in the finale. "I'm happy we came out with the win", added Kennedy, who had 11 strikeouts. "Sometimes it just doesn't fall our way, but we did very well". "We kept them off balance all day". Isabella Fonticella was 2-for-2 and scored twice.
Evan Norman (two singles, triple, two RBI), Ty Gallagher (two doubles, single, two RBI), Jake Roberti (two singles) and Randy Dodig (RBI triple) led the (2-0) Sawyers.
"This is a veteran group".
"In game two, we kept the momentum rolling and came out on top", said Woodhead.
In Saturday's first game against Ellsworth, Hawks Coach Iris Woodhead said her team struggled with late-game execution.
