SOFTBALL: Susquehannock misses chance at outright title
Susquehannock’s bid to clinch an outright York-Adams League Division II softball title will have to wait after falling to Gettysburg on Tuesday, 5-3.
Megan Green found trouble in the circle early, giving up four runs during her 2 2/3 innings pitched before being replaced by Maddie Staub with two outs in the third inning and Susquehannock behind 4-0.
Green did her best to erase the damage after that, slamming a two-run home run during Susquehannock’s three-run fourth inning.
Shanna Martin led the way for Gettysburg. She tossed all seven innings, giving up six hits while striking out two and walking two. She also went 2 for 3 at the plate with two runs scored.
Susquehannock (13-3 overall, 10-3 in the division) has one more crack at earning sole possession of the division crown when it travels to West York on Thursday afternoon.
Dover 11, West York 3: At West York, the Eagles kept their York-Adams Division II hopes alive thanks to a big day at the plate by Natalie Cutright, who went 4 for 5 with a double, three RBIs and a pair of runs scored. Taylor Lamparter tossed seven innings with 10 walks and four strikeouts to collect the victory. Paige Weekly tripled and Makenna Hopta drove in a pair of runs for West York. Dover (12-5 overall, 10-4 Division II) is finished its league season, but can claim a share of the division title if West York is able to knock off Susquehannock (13-3, 10-3) on Thursday.
Dallastown 5, Red Lion 2: At Dallastown, Melanie Grant led the Wildcats with two doubles, while teammate Krista Flemmens tripled. For the Lions, Haily Inguanti tripled, while teammate Taylor Radziewicz doubled. Dallastown (14-2 overall, 12-2 York-Adams Division I) stayed alive in the hunt for a share of the division crown. Central York (12-1) leads the division with one game left.
York Suburban 2, Littlestown 1: At Suburban, Olivia Eytcheson threw a complete game on the mound, striking out four, walking one and allowing three hits. Also for Suburban, Emily Myers went 2 for 2 with one run scored, Brianna Paules went 1 for 2 and while Susan Lloyd had two RBIs.
Delone Catholic 13, York Tech 0 (5 innings): At Spry, Katie Laughman led the Squirettes by going 4 for 4, including a double, with two runs scored and one RBI. For the Spartans, Taylor Glace, Brooke Glass and Crystal Rice each went 1 for 2.
