BELLOWS FALLS -- Woodstock had 11 hits and Bellows Falls fell to the visitors, 8-1, on Wednesday afternoon.
"We had little or no offense, and we didn’t have a ton of base runners," said BFUHS coach Bob Lockerby. "But our pitchers threw mostly strikes. Woodstock basically out played us."
Mike LaBeau was 2-for-4, and teammate Carson Fullam knocked him in for Bellows Falls’ sole run.
The 7-4 Terriers will play at Otter Valley on Friday at 4:30 p.m.
Leland & Gray 7,
Green Mountain 5
TOWNSHEND -- With runners on second and third, Elizabeth Symanski had a sacrifice bunt that turned into a suicide squeeze for a run that tied, then the Rebels sent home two more runners in the fifth inning and Leland & Gray got a win Wednesday over Green Mountain.
The Rebels were down 5-0 heading into the second. "That’s when we started to put the ball into play," said Leland & Gray coach Tammy Claussen, whose team would score two runs in the third off two hits.
Claussen said her team’s defense helped win the game as the Rebels stranded three Green Mountain runners in the fourth and two in the fifth, with no outs against them.
Symanski went the distance, scattered 10 hits, fanned 12 and walked two. Elizbeth Gallup, Leland & Gray’s catcher, "kept a lot of the Green Mountain batters off balance, and worked well with Symanski," said Claussen.
Ashley Goddard and Emily Thibault each had a hit for L&G.
Green Mountain will have a shot at revenge when 8-3 Leland & Gray travels to Chester today to play the Chieftains at 4:30 p.m.
