Sidney softball stuns Afton with ninth-inning homer

Staff Report

Connor Decker hit a two-run homer to right-center field in the top of the ninth inning Wednesday, giving visiting Sidney the decisive runs in a 6-4 Midstate Athletic Conference softball victory over defending Section Four Class D champion Afton.

Dawn Savino, who had three hits, scored the tiebreaking run on Decker’s homer as the teams needed extra innings after playing to a 4-all deadlock after seven.

Sidney took a 4-0 lead in the first inning on a grand slam by Jenna MacDonald.

“The two home runs made all the difference,” Afton coach Cindy Bostelman said. “It was a crazy game.”

Afton battled back with one run in the second and three in the sixth. Sam Rogalski scored Afton’s final run after singling, stealing second and reaching home on a throwing error.

Decker struck out 10 and scattered 10 hits for the pitching victory.

Afton starter Cassidy Phillips also struck out 10 and allowed seven hits. She went 3-for-5 for the Crimson Knights (1-1), who got two hits from Payton Cutting.

Afton visits Greene today.

Deposit 10, B-G 1

Shelby Pettersen went 3-for-4 with three runs and an RBI to lead visiting Deposit to a MAC win.

Kate Tiffany contributed a two-run triple in the seventh for the Lumberjacks (4-0), who got eight strikeouts from winning pitcher Cassi Cook in a six-hitter.

Kylee O’Hara went 2-for-3 for the Bobcats (1-1, 1-1), who got an RBI single from Kadi Barber in the fifth.

B-G visits Hancock today.

Hancock 22, UV 0

Caitlin Wormuth highlighted a 3-for-5 effort with a third-inning grad slam for Hancock, which cruised to a MAC win at home.

Brooke Sherburne (3-for-4) and Sierra Keesler also homered for the Wildcats (3-1, 1-1), who played as the visiting team because UV’s field was unplayable.

Cynthia Wormuth went 3-for-5 and Kylee Letosky finished 3-for-4 for Hancock, which hosts Bainbridge-Guilford today.
