Softball: Patriots steal win from Blue Bison

Softball: Patriots steal win from Blue Bison

Camille Nowak stole home with two out in the bottom of the eighth inning Thursday to give Schenec­ta

Camille Nowak stole home with two out in the bottom of the eighth inning Thursday to give Schenec­tady a 3-2 win over Shaker in the opening round of the Class AA tournament.

“The catcher kind of bobbled the ball, she didn’t catch is cleanly,” said Lady Patriots coach Kristy Mazzariello. “Camille had a big lead, so she went.”

The steal capped a strong game for Nowak, who went 3-for-4 at the plate with a pair of doubles and an RBI.

“It was like a movie. The girls were so excited,” said Mazzariello, whose team goes to top-seeded and defending champion Shenendehowa today.

Rachel Rose struck out six and gave up six hits to get the pitching win for No. 8 seed Schenectady.

Maggie Iverson hit a two-strike, two-out, two-run double in the top of the seventh inning for Shaker.

The other Class AA opener, sending Ballston Spa to Catholic Central, was suspended, and is set to finish today.

Kirstyn Alonzo and Allison Ford combined for a no-hitter, and Kylie Liberty and Erin Maloney both drove in three runs as top-seeded Mechanicville beat Middleburgh, 20-0, in the first round of the Class C tournament.

Liberty went 4-for-4 with two doubles and a triple, Maloney hit a triple, Ford was 3-for-5 and scored four runs and Arissa Spitalny was two hits, two RBI and scored five runs for Mechanicville, which is scheduled to host Voorheesville today at 2 at McBride Field.

The Lady Blackbirds got past Maple Hill, 3-2, in 10 innings. Winning pitcher Amanda Gatt gave up just four hits and struck out 18. She scored on a wild pitch to give Voorheesville a 1-0 lead in the eighth inning, then singled in a run and scored on Jen Brosseau’s single in the 10th.

Arian Papas’ third single of the game pulled Maple Hill to within 3-2, in the home 10th, but the Lady Wildcats, who left 10 runners on base, couldn’t get the tying run across.

Becca Smith fired a no-hitter as No. 3 seed Albany Academy elim­inated Galway, 11-0.

Smith struck out 16, and the only Galway baserunner was the result of an error.

Carylann Geddes went 3-for-3 and drove in three runs, and Nyla McCarthy ripped a three-run double for the Bears, who will host Hoosic Valley today in the quarterfinals.

Casey Haughney drove in three runs as Hoosic Valley beat Sar­atoga Central Catholic, 17-7. Myah Ondreyko had two of the Lady Saints’ five hits.

Fourth-seeded Duanesburg used a pair of three-run innings to beat Fort Plain, 6-0. Rachel Gamache doubled, singled and drove in a run, Devon Hennel had an RBI single and Tess Bloom had two singles and drove in a pair of runs for 18-3 Duanesburg, who had Erika Kenney throw a four-hitter.

Abby Fountain and Alex Lefebvre both had three hits as Waterford-Halfmoon beat Schoharie, 13-6, thanks to a nine-run fifth inning.

Waterford plays at Duanesburg today in the quarterfinals.

Lauren Maher threw a three-hitter, Emily McLaughlin went 4-for-4, Erika Gogis has three hits and two RBI and Rachel Peek finished with three hits as Schalmont downed Granville, 10-5, in a Class B opener. The Lady Sabres play at third-seeded Taconic Hills today in the quarters.

Second-seeded Tamarac overcame eight errors to beat Water­vliet, 4-1. The Lady Bengals await the winner of the suspended game between Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk and No.7 seed Notre Dame-Bishop Gibbons. That contest is scheduled to resume today.
