Plattsburgh High 5, Saranac Lake 4

PLATTSBURGH — Rachel Bedard’s RBI single to center helped the Hornets (9-6, 9-6) to a walk-off win.

“We played a pretty good game,” Plattsburgh High coach Neil Bowlen said. “We made the most of our opportunities at the end. We’ve had some injuries, but (Bedard) has been coming on in the second half of the year.”

Jamie Bedard was credited with the win on the mound, striking out three batters and walking five.

“She gave 100 percent on every batter,” Bowlen said. “Sometimes, your ace doesn’t have their best stuff. But that’s what makes them good — when they pitch well without their best stuff.”

Karlie Neale and Kolbi Lyon each accounted for doubles.

Sydney Battistoni led the Red Storm (10-5, 10-5) at the plate, going 2-for-4 with two RBI. Teammate Megan Kilroy was 3-for-4.

Saranac 9, Northeastern Clinton 5

CHAMPLAIN — Brette Campbell’s two-run home run in the fifth inning helped the Chiefs (14-4) to a four-run win.

Saranac was able to take a 4-0 lead, though, with four runs in the opening frame.

“We had some untimely walks,” Cougars (5-10) coach Carrie McComb said. “It took us a little bit to settle down, but we got under control defensively. Also, it took us three innings to the hit ball ourselves.”

Ashley Terry was 3-for-4 for the Chiefs, while Campbell and Abby Joyal went 2-for-4 with two hits.

Michaela McDonough paced Northeastern Clinton at the plate, going 2-for-4.

Kourtnie Campbell was credited with the win on the mound, firing 12 strikeouts.
