Friday's SJ roundup: Mallory Skelly leads Sterling softball to win over Williamstown

Having gone two weeks without a game, the Carlinville softball team got in two games in a span of two days late last week.

"It is hard this far in the season to know we are still stuck in the gym and there are no signs of the field being ready soon, but the attitudes of the girls we have don't allow that to bother them. Defense got us", said Branford coach Oscar Saavedra.

The Chippewas were also held scoreless in game two, dropping their third consecutive MAC contest 6-0.

DeSpain struck out six in taking the loss. She came into the day with an 0-8 record and a 10.32 ERA.

The River Hawks got their runs early off Army freshman pitcher Courtney Springman.

After South Newton scored six runs in the top of the second inning, PBL (2-6, 2-2 Sangamon Valley Conference) tallied two runs in the bottom of the second.

Zach von Kramer went 3-for-4 with two doubles and Reid Miano was 3-for-3 with a double as the Dragons picked up their first win of the young season. In the next inning, Howard had a reply of their own with a RBI double and sacrifice fly, giving them two more runs.

Playing under the dome at Providence Academy in Plymouth Wednesday evening, the Wolfpack romped to a dominating 23-0 win in four innings over the host Lions.

"I didn't think it was a home run, but it had some pop", Starr said with a smile pointing to her first prep home run.

"The past so many years they've had a dominant pitcher that's just handled us", Red Bank coach Mandi Munn said.

Kelsey Clinkenbeard went 1 for 1 with two RBI.

Still, with a four-game weekend ahead, Riley knows there's plenty left to work on. Things did not get off to a great start for the Dragons, as Towson got to a 6-0 after three innings.

Morningside scored its ninth run of the game in the fifth inning when Lexie Stolen singled and came home on a groundout by Hinker. Ellard's record drops to 1-4.

"They brought it right off the bat", Munn said.

Despite the lead Army built up, the River Hawks continued to mount a comeback one batter at a time.

Seniors Tessa Cipriano and Gabby Stevens each went 1-for-2 at the plate to contrive SV's two hits.

The Wildcats got a run back in the bottom of the sixth on a two-out single by Katie Kroll to score Andrea Rains. Hinker's blast was a three-run shot and Riley, who also homered in the opener, capped the inning's scoring with her round tripper.

McFarland and Schiebe each had two singles, and Bacoulis added a single for Mask. The Jets' Achilles' heel was the fact it left players on base in every inning - 10 total - including two in the third, fourth and sixth.

Katie Ball crossed the plate on an error for the first run and Rebekah DeBlanc drove in the second with an RBI single into right field. Johnson's single and a walk to Burris loaded the bases for Sydney Williams, who grounded into a fielder's choice to end the inning.
