Westport 13, Indian Lake/Long Lake 10

WESTPORT — The Eagles were able to capitalize on walks as they held off the Orange.

Indian Lake/Long Lake pitcher Emma Gray threw a solid game for her team, recording 14 strikeouts. However, she was called repeatedly for illegal pitches, which forced walks and put runners on base. Gray finished with 11 walks.

“The big difference tonight was the walks,” Westport coach Ike Tyler said. “Their pitcher pitched well, but she had a hard time on several occasions being called for an illegal pitched; it helped us score runs.”

The sixth inning was the most productive for the Eagles, as they were able to score six runs at the end of the inning to give themselves a 13-10 lead heading into the seventh.

Sarah Looby helped Westport out offensively. She had a triple, three walks and two stolen bases.

The Eagles were able to capitalize with runners on by being aggressive on the bases. They finished with eight steals.

“Ellie Schwoebel had a delay steal at home for us in the third; it really got us going,” Tyler said. “That was a five-run inning for us — it shook up their pitcher up a little bit.”

Westport’s Brendee Russell gave the Orange trouble on the bases and on the mound. Russell stole four bases and went 2-for-3, and she also tossed seven strikeouts and for the win.

“Russell pitched a really good game for us and only walked four batters,” Taylor said. “She got a little fatigued toward the end of the game but got them out 1-2-3 in the sixth. She pitched really well tonight.”

Prudence Dechene led Indian Lake/Long Lake offensively, going 3-for-4 with three singles, while teammate Madison Miller hit the only double in the game.

ELIZABETHTOWN — The Lions had an explosive 30-run, 24-hit performance against the host Indians.

SARANAC — Runs and hits were both scarce in Saranac on Wednesday.

The Chiefs pushed across a run in the bottom of the seventh inning to edge Northeastern Clinton.

Neither pitcher walked anyone as winner Kourtnie Campbell allowed two infield hits and struck out 12, while tough-luck losing pitcher Stephanie LaValley surrendered four hits and struck out four.

“It was a good old-fashioned pitching duel,” Saranac coach Sam Campbell said. “It didn’t take long to play the game.”

The Chiefs tallied the lone run of the contest when Ashley Terry singled to right and went all the way to third on an outfield error. Brette Campbell then executed a suicide-squeeze bunt to drive in Terry.

Kourtnie Campbell finished with two of the four Saranac hits, while Terry and Taylor Brewer each added a single.

Michaela McDonough and Krista Connelly accounted for the Cougars’ hits.

Peru 19, Beekmantown 3

PERU — The Indians needed just five innings to defeat the visiting Eagles.

Peru started off the bottom of the first with a leadoff home run by Brianna Padron, which started a flood of runs for the Indians — they finished the inning with eight.

Alexis McKee added to Peru’s offense, as she hit a home run and totaled four RBI. Nicole Breton and Sam Fletcher each recorded a double for the Indians as they both totaled three hits and three RBI.

Shanae Jodoin led Beekmantown offensively, going 2-for-3 with two singles.

“We hit the ball pretty well, but we still had some mental mistakes in our game,” Peru coach Jason Brown said.

Brown is hoping his team’s hot hitting will continue for the Indians’ next matchup against Ticonderoga.

“We are getting ready for our game Friday against Ticonderoga,” Brown said. “It should be a good game for us.”
