PORT HENRY -- Pat Wallace wasn't overpowering, but kept the ball near the plate and let his defense take care of the rest.

Wallace struck out three, walked one and allowed just two hits as Moriah (1-3, 1-5) blanked Peru, 1-0, in Champlain Valley Athletic Conference baseball on Friday.

"His line wasn't outstanding, but he threw strikes," Vikings head coach Casey Nephew said. "And, we played solid defense behind him."

Wallace found himself in trouble during the third inning when Mat Turner smacked a triple to lead things off. The next batter was plunked with a pitch and stole second, leaving the Indians with runners on second and third with no outs.

Wallace, however, was able to work his way out of the jam unscathed.

Nick Popp led off the fourth inning with a single and subsequently stole second base. Wallace then helped his own cause with an RBI single, the only run of the game, down the right-field line.

Aaron Tenbuuren suffered the loss for Peru allowing just one run and striking out two. Nick Lamica pitched in relief and struck out six over the final three innings.

Popp led the way for the Vikings with a pair of hits while Caleb Armstrong ripped a double.

Nick Callioras had the lone other hit for the Indians.

TICONDEROGA -- It was an uphill battle for the Sentinels all game.

Adam Pond's two-out, RBI single in the bottom of the eighth gave Ticonderoga its win.

Steve Burris reached on an error to open the inning and was bunted to second. Following a strikeout, Pond bounced a grounder over the head of the Beekmantown third baseman and Burris scored the game-winning run on a close play at the plate.

Nick Furnia rapped a two-run homer and Matt Lamora a three-run double in the top of the first to give the Eagles a 5-0 lead.

The Sentinels, however, countered in the bottom of the inning on Zach LaPointe's three-run homer.

Beekmantown held the lead until Ti scored a run in the fifth to tie it at 6.

LaPointe, who took over for starter Burris in the fifth, was the winning pitcher.

LaPointe rapped out three hits for the Sentinels, while Krys Ross and Pond added two each, with Ross driving in two runs.

Aaron Goldfarb paced the Eagles with three hits and D.J. Barber added two.
