Williamsport Junior League softball tops Wellsboro

Williamsport wins 11-1 to win Section 3 Championship

 

by Ed Weaver - July 11, 2016

The Wellsboro Junior League All-Stars fell 11-1 in the third game of the Section 3 championship series to Williamsport on Friday, July 8.

With three games in three days Wellsboro pushed the Williamsport girls to a decisive third game after splitting the first two games. Game one was a close game tied at 1-1 until Williamsport scrapped together three runs in the bottom of the fourth inning. Wellsboro out hit their opponent with 5 hits compared to Williamsport’s 2, but was unable to mount a comeback late in the game against Williamsport’s Lynna Robertson.

The girls held Williamsport scoreless for the last two innings but dropped game one with a 4–1 loss. It was a promising start against a much deeper roster of Williamsport. Cathryn Brought pitched the entire game allowing 4 runs on 2 hits, 4 walks and striking out 4. Hailey Neal led the Wellsboro All-Stars at the plate with a triple and run scored with Ryann Adams, Jena Boyce, Tiana Lecker, and Rileigh Gerges all getting hits.

In game two the teams were scoreless until Williamsport posted 2 runs in the bottom of the 4th inning. Wellsboro held their own and broke through in the bottom of the 6th with 3 runs and added another in the top of the seventh inning. Williamsport attempted to make a comeback as they put their first two batters on base in the bottom of the seventh.

The next batter hit a grounder to Wellsboro’s Tiana Lecker who turned a double play as she stepped on third and found Ryann Adams covering second to finish the play. With two outs and the tying run at the plate Wellsboro’s catcher Hailey Neal made a spectacular diving catch on a foul ball to seal the 4-2 win for Wellsboro and send it to a deciding game three.

Ryann Adams led the Wellsboro team at the pate going 4 for 4 and a run scored.Cathryn Brought went 2-for-4 with 2 RBIs in the sixth inning. Wellsboro had 10 hits to Williamsport’s 5 in the win. Also getting hits were Jena Boyce, Hailey Neal, Tiana Lecker and Georgia Macensky. Cathryn Brought pitched for Wellsboro allowing 5 hits, 2 walks and striking out 2.

The win was very emotional as the girls evened the series but lost their starting first basemen Heidi Zuchoswki to a season ending broken arm. After driving in the game-winning RBI with a sacrifice fly in the 6th inning, Zuchowski crashed into the fence attempting to catch a foul ball in the bottom of the 7th. With one of their team leaders injured the girls showed their grit and proved to the crowds they belonged in the Sectional Championship game by executing the double play and “web gem” catch to secure the win.

Wellsboro took the field in game three down one of their key starters looking to bring home a Sectional title. The local Williamsport crowd was nothing compared the swarm of green down the right field line and outfield fence cheering on their local girls. Unfortunately the outcome of the game was not in Wellsboro’s favor.

Through the first two games Cathryn Brought had held the Williamsport team to only 7 hits over 14 innings, but Williamsport was able to tack on a few hits and runs every inning as they scored 11 runs on 10 hits and drawing 6 walks. The Wellsboro All-Stars kept fighting and were able to get runners in scoring position in several innings, but it wasn’t until the bottom of the 5th that they were able to score.

Williamsport’s Kalindi Maggs and Summer McNulty both scored in the top of the first to jump out to an early 2-0 lead in the top of the first. Mariah Wright scored to make it 3-0 Williamsport in the third, Maggs and McNulty both scored again in the top of the fourth, and Robertson scored in the fifth to make it 7-0.

Wellsboro got on the scoreboard in the bottom of the fifth when Adams bunted and beat out the throw to first to get on base. Jena Boyce hit a grounder to third in the next at bat and beat out a low throw that allowed Adams to score to make it 7-1.

Williamsport added four more runs over the final two innings, as McNulty scored for a third time in the sixth, then Wright, Isabella Griswold, and Maggs scored to make the final score 11-1.

Robertson was again on the mound for Williamsport and was able to keep the Wellsboro team from stringing hits together to score. Brought and Adams split the pitching duties, while Hailey Neal led the Wellsboro at the plate with a 2-for-3 night with a double and a single. Adams, Boyce, Tiana Lecker, and Rileigh Gerges all had hits as well.
