Warriors Power Past Corinth
Maybe the Lake George softball team should have a new nickname. I think the "Power Plant" might be appropriate. The Warriors have been putting up home run numbers like those never seen before in the early part of the season.
Friday Lake George used the strength of four dingers to power past Corinth 21-9 in Adirondack League play. The Warriors pounded out 19 hits in the contest.
Shannon Starratt led the surge for the Warriors, banging out two homers. Makena Barber and Mollie Johnson also slammed home runs for Lake George.
Lake George plated four runs in the first and four runs in the second to lead 8-0. The Tomahawks responded with eight runs in the third to pull even. However, the Warriors answered quickly with five runs in the bottom of the third, five in the fourth and four more in the fifth to blow the game open.
Starratt finished 4 for 5 with five RBIs. Johnson was 4 for 5 with five RBIs. Barber was 2 for 3 with three RBIs. Mattison Stark was 2 for 4 with and drove in five runs.
Taylor Syvertsen added a double for the Warriors. Olivia Gates and Grce York contributed triples.
Barber picked up the win in the pitching circle.
Alexis Crossman was 1 for 3 with and RBI for the Tomahawks.
Lake George is now 2-0, 3-1. Corinth is 0-3, 0-3.
Warrensburg Rolls Past Cougars
Warrensburg jumped out to a big lead and went on to roll over North Warren 22-2 in Adirondack League softball at the Adirondack Sports Complex in Glens Falls. The game was shortened to five innings by the Run Rule.
The Burghers scored three runs in the first and seven in the second to lead 10-0. Warrensburg put up an 11 spot in the third to finish off the Cougars.
Kailey Bacon earned the win in the circle, spinning a two-hitter and striking out six.
Natalie Bedarian went 4 for 4 for the Burghers with a double and three RBIs. Madison Goodspeed was 3 for 4 with five RBIs. Kara Bacon homered and Caitlin O'Donnell tripled.
Warrensburg is 1-1, 2-1.
Golden Horde Baseball
The Granville baseball team picked up their third win of the season as they went on the road to defeat Hadley-Luzenre 10-1 in an Adirondack League contest.
A four-run fourth inning proved to be a key for the Golden Horde in pulling away for the win. Avery Flory and Gavin Cosey had drove in runs in the frame.
Caleb Nelson started on the bump for the Golden Horde, going five innings, giving up just five hits and one run while striking out nine. Cody Nelson also pitched two innings, striking out two.
Cosey was 3 for 4 on the afternoon for Granville. Conner Farrell, Nate Rathbun and Caleb Nelson also had multiple hits for the Golden Horde.
Tyler Plummer was 2 for 4 for the Eagles.
Granville is now 3-0, 3-0 on the season.
