Dower's big day leads Jackets past Forks

Staff Report

Senior Hayley Dower went 4-for-5 and scored two runs to lead visiting Oneonta High to a 10-4 Southern Tier Athletic Conference softball victory Friday at Chenango Forks.

“Her left-handed drag bunt comes in handy,” OHS coach Randy Brockway said of Dower.

Teammate Brianna Haines batted 2-for-5 with three RBIs and two runs. Emmalee Sloman and Amy Hait also contributed two hits apiece and both scored for the Yellowjackets, who led, 8-1, after four innings.

Winning pitcher Brieanna Baker, a sophomore, struck out 12 and walked two. She also went 2-for-3.

Michaela Transue and Elena Shelepak each doubled and scored for the Blue Devils, who received an RBI single from Brooke Trowning.

“It was nice to bounce back and hit the ball well,” said Brockway, whose team lost, 1-0, to unbeaten Windsor on Thursday.

The Jackets (3-1, 3-1) will play a non-league game at New Hartford on Monday.
