SARANAC -- Saranac used the long ball to turn back Peru, 4-3, in Champlain Valley Athletic Conference girls' softball Friday afternoon.

Nicole Vann rapped a two-run homer to tie the game and Nikki Vaughan's solo homer provided the margin of difference in the Chiefs' win.

Saranac (8-2, 5-2) held a 1-0 lead until the fifth inning when the Indians scored three runs, two on Lacey Tourville's triple, to take a 3-1 advantage.

But, in the bottom of the fifth, Vann's homer pulled the Chiefs even and Vaughan then hit her game-winning shot.

Winning pitcher Tiffany Reyell allowed four hits, struck out four and walked two in going the distance for the victory. Losing pitcher Sacha LaBounty surrendered nine hits, fanned one and walked one.

Erin Terry scored two runs for the Chiefs and Constance Mandeville drove in the other run for Peru.
