SPRINGFIELD -- The Colonels girls softball team has won their last three games, with their latest victory coming Tuesday afternoon, after defeating Springfield, 9-0, on the Cosmos’ home field.
Brattleboro’s Hannah Wilson pitched a complete game, scattering six hits, fanning three, and walking two. She also went 1-for-3 with an RBI.
"The kids played well," said Colonels coach Kelly Markol. "They made solid contact and only had one error on a bad throwdown."
Mckinlie Carpenter also had the bat swinging, going 4-for-4 with three singles and a double, Maddy Derosia went 2-for-3, Siera Butler had a solo shot and three RBIs, and Casey Manning, Devin Millerick, and Daisy Giroux all had knocks for the winners.
Brattleboro is 7-2 and will host MAU today.
Burr and Burton 7, Brattleboro 0
MANCHESTER -- The Brattleboro girls tennis team dropped to 2-7 on the season with their latest loss to Burr and Burton, Wednesday night at the BBA courts.
The Colonels got crushed in their singles matches. Katie Tsukamoto fell to Jordan Harmon (6-1, 6-2) in No. 1 singles, Jenn Hutton was beaten by Irene Matos (6-3, 6-0), Haley Marcil succumbed to Gabby Vella (6-0, 6-1), and Grace Willingham lost to Stella Oh, 6-0, 6-1. The team had to forfiet their No. 5 singles matchup because of sickness and injury.
"Missing the players made it tough, but honestly I don’t think it would have made much difference," said BUHS coach Tom Weber. "BBA is that much better than us."
In No.1 Doubles, Greta Larson and Laura Armijo took on Eliza Breed and Juliia Breed, and battled to a 6-2, 6-4 finish, while in No. 2 Doubles, Kimberly Bau and Emily Bau couldn’t come up with the win versus Haley McGrath and Rena Aso.
The Colonels are at Otter Valley this afternoon.
"I hated to forfeit the No. 5 spot," said Weber. "It was one of those days. We will put this behind us. We know there are winnable matches ahead and look forward to the challenge. We will go to OtterValley Friday and look to play well."
Rebels baseball team takes two losses
TOWNSHEND -- The Rebels baseball team dipped to 3-3 on the season after taking two losses during the week.
Their first loss was handed to them by an undefeated Woodstock, 4-2, on Tuesday. L&G’s Josh Donna threw for six innings, fanned 10 batters, had five walks, and gave up just two hits.
"It was one of Donna’s better games actually," said Rebels coach Eric Durocher. "We just didn’t have a whole lot going on in our hit department."
On Wednesday, Otter Valley crushed the Rebs, 18-3. L&G burned through their bullpen with efforts from Jeremy Bovat, Owen Beattie, and Adam Beattie.
"It wasn’t typical of us," said Durocher, whose team will play at MSJ on Saturday at 11 a.m. "We just have to get out of our funk."
Pirates team progress
BRATTLEBORO -- The Pirates started the 2014 season with three wins, and they defeated the Cardinals 17-0 in four innings in an earlier game.

Adam Newton faced 10 batters and struck out nine to get the win. Gregory Fitzgerald pitched three good innings for the Cards.
Previously, the Pirates defeated the Reds, 11-3. The Pirates bats were led again by Millerick, who went 3-for-3, and Newton and Carroll were both 2-for-3. David Scott reached safely in his Little League debut. The Pirates were again led on the mound by Newton, who fanned 14 with Hailey Derosia coming in for relief. The Reds’ Huxley pitched four solid innings to keep the game close.
In their latest victory, the Pirates downed the Red Sox, 4-1. Alex Carpenter got his first Little League hit, Jacob Gouger reached base safely and Jack Barnes had some good at bats, as well. Ben Lane and Harrison Kerber patrolled the outfield for the Pirates. Red Sox pitcher Liam Styles pitched a great game. Shea Buckley and Ryan Bird each got on base.
