AuSable Valley 7, Moriah 6

AUSABLE FORKS — Madison Rondeau fired 12 strikeouts as the Patriots battled back from a five-run deficit in the second inning.

“We made some mistakes early on, and they took advantage,” AuSable Valley coach Marty Snow said. “Moriah hit the ball well and played good defense, but we were able to settle down and generate some offense.”

Tiffany Evens and Miranda Sheffer paced the Patriots with two hits each.

“I was pleased with everyone,” Snow said. “We made a few mistakes, but so did they. I’m just glad were able to come away with a win.”

Taylor Sprague led the Vikings with two doubles in the loss.

Plattsburgh High 12, Northeastern Clinton 10

CHAMPLAIN — Rachel Bedard and Amanda McMahon combined to go 7-for-8 at the plate, helping the Hornets to a two-run victory.

“Neither pitcher pitched terrible; it came down to whose defense was going to come up with the ball,” Cougars coach Carrie McComb said. “Both teams were able to time each other very well. We tied it in the third, and they came right back. We might have waited an inning too long to comeback.”

Emily Boyer, Katie Matott, Stephanie LaValley, Paige Dominic and Krista Connelly all registered two hits for Northeastern Clinton.

“We definitely didn’t give up,” McComb said. “We did have the tying run at the plate in the seventh, but the game ended on a groundout.”

Plattsburgh High’s Karlie Neale belted a home run.

Boyer and Matott also hit home runs of their own in the loss.

Crown Point 4, Minerva/Newcomb 1

OLMSTEDVILLE — Alex Macey fired 14 strikeouts and helped her own cause at the plate, registering a two-run home run for the Panthers (11-0).

“We hit a lot of lines drives, but they played decent defense in the first couple innings,” Crown Point coach Tony Macey said. “Maria Malone had a sacrifice bunt in the third. That helped generate some offense. Minerva/Newcomb committed three of its four errors in the third, and we capitalized.”

Macey led the Panthers at the plate with two hits, while Hunter Spaulding added the Panthers’ third and final hit of the ballgame.

Cheyenne Williams managed the Mountaineers’ lone hit of the contest.

Chazy, which held a 7-4 lead after one inning, chipped away and eventually cut its deficit to one with a run in the bottom of the seventh.

Megan Reynolds paced the Eagles with a single, a triple, a home run and three RBI. Taylor Laurin added two hits, and Paige Garnot had a triple.

“It was definitely a hitter’s game,” Chazy coach Liz Garrand said. “We cooled off a little later in the game.”
