Junior Hailey Rivers drove in three runs, and Mechanicville used a five-run fifth inning to beat Notre Dame-Bishop Gibbons 8-4 Friday in the quarterfinal round of the Section II Class B softball tournament.

After falling behind 2-0, Mechanicville tied the game in the fourth inning on a two-run double by Rivers, the No.9 hitter in the lineup.

Mechanicville, the third seed, took the lead for good in the fifth inning and advanced to Wednesday’s semifinal at Veeder Park in Colonie.

The loss ended the careers of Notre Dame-Bishop Gibbons’ standout twin sisters, Joelle and Alyssa Salisbury. The Golden Knights were eliminated in the quarters for the fourth consecutive year.
