---- — Staff Report

Freshman Aiyana Roupp went 4-for-4 with two doubles and three RBIs to lead Oneonta High to a 9-3 Southern Tier Athletic Conference softball victory over visiting Norwich on Tuesday.

“Aiyana’s been hitting the ball extremely well,” OHS coach Randy Brockway said. “We’ve moved her up to the four spot; she had been hitting seventh. I’m certainly happy the way she’s been swinging the bat.”

The Yellowjackets (5-2, 4-2) scored twice in the third inning to take a 3-2 lead. Winning pitcher Brieanna Baker walked to lead off. She went to second on a one-out single by Sara Horne. Both runners moved up on a wild pitch. Baker scored on a single by Roupp and Horne scored on an RBI groundout by Ceili Getman.

Baker struck out 14 and walked two in a five-hitter.

“I thought she looked better today,” Brockway said of Baker, a junior who also went 2-for-2 with two walks and scored twice. “She looked more confident and had more velocity.”

Deseray Thomas also had two hits for the Yellowjackets, who will host Chenango Forks today.

Jordan Sanford went 3-for-3 with a double and two runs scored for Norwich.

Sidney 5, Deposit 1

Mackensie Gravelin hit a two-run homer in the second inning and winning pitcher Connor Decker scattered five hits to lead host Sidney to a Midstate Athletic Conference triumph.

The Warriors (5-2, 4-0) now have wins over perennial MAC powers Afton and Deposit this season.

“We’re getting good pitching, we’re playing solid defense and we’re getting timely hits when we need them,” Sidney coach Mike Brazee said of his team’s start.

Gravelin’s first varsity home run went to left-center.

“It was bomb,” Brazee said. “We don’t have a fence, but that would have been over most fences.”

It gave the Warriors a 2-0 lead.

Decker struck out five and walked two. She also benefited from a big defensive play in the sixth inning.

Deposit had a runner on third with one out, when Shelby Pettersen hit a flyball to right. Jenna McDonald caught it and then threw home in time to get the runner for a double play.

Aubrin Smith homered in the fifth inning for Deposit, which received two hits from Pettersen.

Kelsey Decker had two hits and an RBI for the Warriors, who will travel to Unatego on Thursday.

Afton visits Harpursville today.

Davenport 12, Downsville 10

Ally More drove in the final runs with a one-out double in the top of the seventh as Davenport rallied for a Delaware League victory on the road.

The Wildcats took advantage of a walk and a hit batter to start the inning, setting up More for a two-run double down the left-field line.

“She couldn’t have placed it any better,” said Downsville coach Anne Micelli, whose team lost despite getting a two-hitter from Kaileen Townsend (seven strikeouts, eight walks, two hit batters).

Winning pitcher Jenna Lutz struck out 10, walked one and scattered 11 hits.

Kacie Banker homered, singled and drove in two runs for the Eagles (2-3, 2-1), who got two hits and two RBIs from Leigha LaTourette.
