Meg Campney supplied both RBI for the Sentinels in their 2-1 victory over the Cougars in Champlain Valley Athletic Conference softball.
Campney had the only two hits of the game for Ticonderoga, cracking a triple and a double.
“She was our big hitter (Monday),” Sentinels coach Shelly Young said. “She brought in all of our runs.”
Jennifer Favro and Stephanie LaValley combined for Northeastern Clinton on the mound and allowed just those two hits. But, two runs in the third inning proved to be the difference.
Jordan McKee was strong on the mound for Ticonderoga, collecting the win.
“We started off strong,” Young said. “Jordan struck out the first three batters she faced — she pitched pretty solid. They scored their run in the second inning and we had two errors in the inning.
“Both teams played fairly well; it was a good game.”

SARANAC LAKE 3, LAKE PLACID 2
LAKE PLACID — In a low scoring, extra-inning thriller, the visiting Red Storm were able to get the go-ahead run in the eighth inning for the victory over the Blue Bombers Monday.
Saranac Lake outhit the Blue Bombers 14-6, but only one run separated the game. The Red Storm scored a run in the fourth, sixth and finally the eighth inning to take the win.
“We played pretty tough when they had runners in scoring position,” Lake Placid coach Donna Moody said. “We really minimized their hits.”
Brittany Tschirhart started the game for Saranac Lake, but it was Nicole Viscardo who came in for relief the sixth inning and earned the win. Viscardo helped get herself the victory by getting her third hit of the game, which ended up being the eventual game-winning single in the top of the eighth inning.
