Alfred-Almond 10, Andover/Whitesville 1

ANDOVER — Through a tight battle in the early stages, Isabel Badeau provided a tremendous outing for the Lady Eagles of Alfred-Almond to syphon off of, hurling five consecutive shutout innings to keep host Andover/Whitesville off the board while on the attack, they would score 10 runs in a row, the majority of which scratching across in the late stages to pull away towards what would be a 10-1 win in Andover, Saturday afternoon. The Lady Eagles would use three key hits in the first three innings to drive home their first three runs, beginning with an RBI single from Olivia Flaitz in the team’s opening at-bats to break the ice right away. The offense would now freeze until the third when they added onto their lead with a pair, stemming off an RBI triple from Taylor Flaitz, and shortly after, an RBI single from Badeau to take a 3-0 lead. For the rest of the game, Alfred-Almond would use their special teams on the bases to help produce their last seven runs of the game, capitalizing on key steals along with miscues in the field from Andover/Whitesville (0-8) to scratch across their final runs. The shutout would be eliminated by the hosts in blue and purple in the bottom of the sixth however, as Kennedy Bledsoe drove in the team’s lone run on a single. The hit was one of five the team would record in all, with Aislinn Hamilton posting two, including a double. In the circle, Olivia Waters struck out four and walked five in her six-inning start for Andover/Whitesville, who will now travel to Avoca/Prattsburgh for a 5 p.m. contest on Monday.

Arkport/Canaseraga 9, Fillmore 5

FILLMORE — The Lady Eagles of Fillmore put the pieces to the puzzle together early on, Saturday afternoon against Arkport/Canaseraga. With a two-run lead in hand, they were in control of their own destiny.

But the Lady Wolves had other plans in store as the game went on, with a dynamic close to the afternoon from Grace Groves in the circle leading the charge for the offense and special teams to build off of it, as they posted the game’s final six runs in a row to take their first lead and hold it permanently, securing a 9-5 comeback win over the Lady Eagles.

All five runs for the Lady Eagles (3-8) were posted in the first three innings of play, starting with the game’s opening run before building more onto their foundation with a three-run second frame to take a 4-0 lead on Arkport/Canaseraga.

The Lady Wolves would manage to trim the deficit down to a single run with a three-run response in the top of the third before Fillmore pushed the advantage back out to a pair in the bottom half. That would be all for the Lady Eagles on offense, as Groves helped the defense buckle in for the last four innings, tossing shutout frames in each one while the offense capitalized on all fronts with six unanswered runs to overtake the lead for good.

Groves would finish with the complete game win, fanning 10 Fillmore batters. At the plate, the offense was held to three hits — one each from Autumn Frechette, Nicole Merry and Morgan Gilbert.

As for the Lady Eagles, they accumulated nine hits on offense, with Mattie McCumiskey leading the efforts with a 3-for-4 outing. Mylee Miller chipped in with two hits, while Oakley Frazier, Delaney Hillman, Skylar Gaddy and Kylee Ellsworth all had a hit each to chip in.
