Kylee Wiggans pitched a complete game and had nine strikeouts to lead the Walton softball team to a 10-8 win at home against Oxford on Thursday.

Both teams scored three first-inning runs to knot the score.

Oxford had a four-run third inning to take a 7-3 lead, but two runs from the Warriors in the fourth cut the lead to two.

In the bottom of the sixth, the Warriors (2-4) broke the game open, scoring five runs to pull ahead.

The inning started off with a hit-by-pitch and a walk. The next Walton batter, Rylee MacDonald, hit an RBI single to get to within one.

Oxford starter Allison Beckwith hit another batter to load bases, and Riley McAdams had a game-winning two-RBI single to make it 10-7.

Oxford managed one run in the top of the seventh, but couldn't pull off the comeback. 

Beckwith had nine strikeouts in the loss.

“It was a good close game, especially on a wet and slippery field” Walton coach Tera Talbot said.

Walton hosts Afton on Friday at 4:30 p.m.

Downsville 17, Hunter-Tannersville 2 (5 inn.)

Downsville starting pitcher Mara Marshall LeRoy improved her record to 4-1 on the year, pitching a complete game as her team beat Hunter-Tannersville by 15 runs on Thursday.

Marshall LeRoy pitched all five innings, striking out 10 opposing hitters and allowing two hits while walking just one. The game was called after the fifth due to the run rule.

"She is pitching really, really well right now," Downsville head coach Anne Miceli said. "Her control is phenomenal and she can get people out with different pitches."

Downsville (4-2) got ahead, 3-0, after the first inning and scored ten more runs in the second to take control of the game.

Faith Barich, who was behind the plate for Downsville all afternoon, hit 4-for-5 with a team-best 5 RBIs in the win.

Barich's teammate Jadyn Colao had the game's only extra-base hit, smacking a 2-RBI double in the win.

"If we can keep hitting and Mara (Marshall LeRoy) can keep pitching this way I think we can keep coming out on top," Miceli said.

Downsville hosts Margaretville on Tuesday at 4:15 p.m.

Gilboa 16, Windham 0 (5 inn.)

Sierra Perry hit 2-for-3, including a double, with two RBIs and Gilboa improved to 5-0 overall with a victory over Delaware League opponent Windham on Thursday.

The Wildcats are 3-0 in league play.

Abigail Tompkins pitched the win, going four innings and striking out eight. She didn't walk any Warriors.

Alexa Dumas pitched the final fifth inning and Hailie Shultis caught the entire game.

Windham had seven hits and five errors. Gilboa had 10 hits and one error.

“We were patient at the plate,” Gilboa head coach Dan McGlynn said. “And we played well on defense in the field, too.”

Gilboa is scheduled to host Davenport at 12 p.m. Friday. Davenport has the day off from school and Gilboa is having an “assembly game” in which it hopes the whole school comes out to the field to watch the game.  

Milford 15, Sharon Springs 8

Milford upended Sharon Springs by seven Thursday evening with Elyia Pickwick (2-1) on the mound.

She was relieved by Leanna West in the sixth inning. Pickwick had seven strikeouts and West tallied three. Emily Elliot caught until Ally Morrison came in the sixth.

Sisters Elyia and Amanda Pickwick each had two hits for Milford. West had three hits including a double and four RBIs. Ally Morrison had a double and Samantha Harvey hit a home run.

Sharon Springs had Abby Reynolds on the mound with Brianna Ruffman catching.

Reynolds and teammate Madison Palenczia each had two hits.

Roxbury 24, South Kortright 1 (5 inn.)

Roxbury's Claire McDaniel pitched a complete game that was called after four and a half innings due to the run rule, lifting the Rockets (5-1) to a lopsided win at home against South Kortright on Thursday.

The win improves McDaniel to 5-0 as a starter. She also hit a double and a home run at the plate.

Lacey German led the game off for the Rockets with a home run of her own. Next, Katrina Davis walked and McDaniel swatted a two-run home run. Roxbury scored nine runs in the opening inning.

The Rockets scored nine more in the second to go up 18-0.

Rebeka Stern also went 2 for 2 and had three RBIs for the Rockets.

Roxbury travels to Milford for the Milford Tournament on Saturday at 10 a.m.

Chenango Forks 5, Oneonta 1

Meira Hogan pitched a complete game for Chenango Forks and teammate Bri Ramstine went 2 for 2 at the plate as Chenango Forks topped Oneonta (6-2) on Thursday.

CF hit the ball well against Yellowjackets starter Ally Baker, and a couple of misplayed balls by the defense helped the Blue Devils earn the road win.

Oneonta scored its lone run in the bottom of the first, and Hogan shut the Yellowjackets down the rest of the way.

Baker had the team's only extra-base hit of the afternoon, a double.

Oneonta travels to Maine-Endwell on Saturday at 11 a.m. for the Mary Testa Cancer Tournament.

Adirondack 7, Cooperstown 0

Ariel Kranbuhl pitched a complete game and hit a home run to lead Adirondack (5-0) to a win at home against Cooperstown.

“Adirondack is a very good Class B program and Kranbuhl is an outstanding pitcher,” Cooperstown head coach Dave Bliss said.

After holding the Hawkeyes scoreless in the top of the first, Kranbuhl smacked a hard-hit home run down the left field line in the bottom of the inning.

“The fence is two hundred feet away, six feet high, and it cleared the wall easily by 30 feet and went over the roadway that is behind the fence and into the woods in the air.” coach Bliss said of Kranbuhl's home run.

Natalie Brotherton got the loss for the Hawkeyes and is 1-2 as a starter on the season.

“Defensively we played well, better than the score indicated," coach Bliss said. "They are just a good program.”

Hailey Seaman had two hits in the loss for the Hawkeyes.

Cooperstown hosts Lake Placid on Saturday at 12 p.m. for a doubleheader.

Sidney 23, Delhi 3

Olivia DeMott pitched her second no-hitter of the season on Thursday as Sidney beat Delhi.

Delhi starter Veronica Armstrong was taken out in the first inning after allowing 12 runs.

Sidney travels to Deposit on Friday at 4:30 p.m.
