SARANAC — The Chiefs were able to get some clutch pitching Monday, as they defeated the visiting Blue Bombers.

Kourtnie Campbell picked up the win for Saranac, pitching a complete game and recording seven strikeouts and only walking two.

Summer Gillespie and freshman Brette Campbell each had two hits for the Chiefs, while teammate Tori Trim had the only double of the game.

“Both teams made a couple of early mistakes which accounted for some of the runs,” Campbell said. “We kind of scored a few to open it up later; we hit the ball well in key situations.”
