Doris Kane belted a three-run double in the fourth inning Wednesday, and Guilderland knocked off second-seeded Colonie, 4-1, in a Class AA semifinal played at Veeder Park in Colonie.

Mackenzie Lozano followed Kane’s hit with an RBI single as the fourth-seeded Lady Dutch made the most of the two hits they got off Colonie starter Kelly Lane.

Genevieve Paeglow hit an RBI double, and Jessie Fleck singled in a run in the Bethlehem eighth.

Shenendehowa got two of the runs back in the home eighth before Bethlehem got the third out. Bethlehem had tied the game, 1-1, in the sixth on a bases-loaded walk. Mikayla Shade and Amanda Halek led off the winning rally with singles.

Top-seeded Troy beat Queensbury, 10-2, at Moreau Rec in a Class A semifinal.

Eighth-grader Hunter Levesque scattered seven hits, and ninth-grader Lexi Lewis hit a single and a double and drove in a run as the Lady Horses went to 19-2.

Troy will get second-seeded South Glens Falls in Friday’s 5 p.m. championship at Moreau Rec. The Lady Bulldogs, who have won 13 sectional titles since 1997, including three straight Class A championships, beat Averill Park, 5-0, in the other Class A semi.
