Border Country Sports Blog-May 5th
Good Morning! With the Border Country Sports Blog, I'm Keith Harrington.
Well, Mother Nature was the real winner yesterday as the local baseball and softball schedule was washed away by the rain. That moved a lot of the action to today, and there are some huge games on tap in the Adirondack League.
The biggest game of the day is in ADK softball when Lake George visits Whitehall. I will be heading to Whitehall for that one. Both teams are unbeaten in league play and are locked in to the ADK Tournament, but both will want to set the tone for their potential playoff meeting. The Railroaders won the regular season meeting last year, with the Warriors winning the Adirondack League Championship game and sectional meeting.
I hope to be able to catch a the end of the Whitehall vs.Lake George baseball game as well. This one also has ADK tourney implications. The Railroaders have two losses two Corinth and Hadley-Luzerne. Lake George is coming off their first loss to Hadley-Luzerne.
Granville will be hosting Salem in softball. This is another game that is important in the playoff race. Granville is coming off a tough 1-0 loss to Warrensburg. A loss today against the Generals would set up a likley must win game against Lake George Friday. However, a win for the Golden Horde would put them in a good posiiton because if they end up tied with the Generals they would have head to head.
The Granville boys will be hosting Salem-Cambridge on the Ken Burch Complex diamond. The Golden Horde are unbeaten in the ADK and a win would set up a chance against Lake George tomorrow to clinch the #1 seed in the league tournament. Salem-Cambridge seems to be in a pretty good position to make the tourney but a loss would cut down their room for error.
The league semifinals are scheduled for next Wednesday with the championship games next Friday.
