It took an extra frame, but Downsville took down Delaware League competition Davenport on Tuesday in a battle of the third and fourth teams in the league standings.

Downsville is now 6-2 in league play (7-3 overall), jumping to the third spot over Davenport (7-5, 5-3 DL).

Downsville led, 1-0, until the top of the sixth when Davenport ran in three runs. In the bottom of the inning, Alice Gummoe brought the game within one, making contact to earn a base hit and an RBI.

Downsville’s Bethany Brown, a senior lefty who went 2-for-4 at the plate, hit an RBI single to tie the game in the bottom of the seventh.

Forcing the game into extra innings, Davenport was held scoreless in the top of the eighth. Downsville’s Mara Marshall LeRoy hit a single and advanced to second after the next hitter moved to first off an error.

Jadyn Colao stepped up to the plate, hitting the ball to the right field, sending LeRoy home to win the game.

“This is one of the best teams I’ve had; we play like a family. It’s nice to win our last league and senior recognition game,” Downsville coach Anne Miceli said.

Downsville honored six seniors for its senior recognition game: Corra Nocella, Faith Barich, Gabby Ryan, LeRoy, Lindsey Hefele and Brown.

LeRoy (7-2) struck out 18 batters for Downsville and walked four.

“Mara pitched a heck of a game for us which made a huge difference,” Miceli said. “We could have hit better but only having one error does help.”

Greene 10, Unatego 9

Greene edged Unatego in the top of the seventh to take a one-run win on the road.

Greene eighth-grader Olivia Kennedy struck out 10 with five walks. Tiffany Johns caught the game.

Johns and Tiffany Repp each had two hits. Repp and Mckenna Sergie hit back-to-back triples in the fifth inning for Greene.

Paige McCoy started on the mound for Unatego and was relieved in the sixth inning by Mallory Frazier. The pair totaled six strikeouts. Hali Lucia was the catcher for both pitchers.

Jaci Zaveral and Lucia went 2-for-4 at the plate. Lucia tallied four RBIs on the night. Leah Hamm hit a double.

“It was a very hard fought battle on both sides ... it was a good game,” said Unatego coach Christina Butcher.

Unatego awaits seeding for an opponent and time in the Mini-MAC tournament on Thursday.

Cherry Valley-Springfield 22, Franklin 9

Cherry Valley-Springfield defeated Franklin by double digits on Tuesday night.

CV-S pitchers Sam Rockwell and Kelsie Girard alternated on the mound with Rockwell earning the win. Megan Wilmot caught the game.

Zoey Horning led the Patriots offensively, going 4-for-4 at the plate with three RBIs and scoring five runs. Skylar Girard went 2-for-3, scoring four runs with three RBIs. Kelsie Girard went 3-for-4 and scored three runs and Makayla Gwinn had three hits with five runs.

Franklin’s Kayla Campbell and Rachel Cobane were the losing battery of the night.

Marissa Campbell hit a triple for the Purple Devils.

Sauquoit 5, Cooperstown 1

Cooperstown chased Sauquoit starter Marley Ingles from the circle in the fourth inning of Monday’s 7-2 home win.

Unfotunately for the Hawkeyes, Ingles was a different pitcher on Tuesday when the two teams met, throwing a complete game three-hitter to give her team a 5-1 win at home.

“Same pitcher we faced last night and we hit her well yesterday,” Cooperstown head coach Dave Bliss said. “Tonight we had eight walks and had base runners in every inning, we just couldn’t bring them home.”

Cooperstown and Sauquoit were locked in a scoreless tie through three, but a run in the fourth and fifth, followed by three more in the sixth, gave the home team a commanding 5-1 lead.

Cooperstown starting pitcher Natalie Brotheron allowed seven hits in the loss, but her coach says she pitched better than the result would indicate.

“She pitched well enough to win,” Bliss said. “We just needed to give her some run support and we didn’t.”

Brotherton, Piper Seamon and Anu Patel each had a single, accounting for the Hawkeyes’ three hits.

Neither team registered an extra-base hit.

Cooperstown travels to Little Falls on Wednesday at 7 p.m.

Laurens 20, Worcester 11

Laurens advanced to a 10-1 overall record following a home victory over Worcester.

Laurens celebrated its senior recognition game by honoring Hannah Faulkner, Rachelle Soucia, Alexa Evans and Georgia Quattlebaum.

Soucia got the win for Laurens, earning a record of 9-1 on the mound. Skylar White relieved her in the fifth inning and Alexa Evans caught the game.

Soucia and Sierra Johnson went 2-for-5 at the plate, each scoring three runs. Soucia also tallied two RBIs. Faulkner went 2-for-3, scoring three runs and Evans scored three times and had two RBIs.

Delimar Vega took the loss for Worcester on the mound. Allie Wilcox relieved her in the fifth inning, and Miriam Odell caught the whole game.

Juniors Willow Thompson and Vanessa Parker went 3-for-3 and 2-for-3, respectively, and senior Katelyn Kwiatkoweski went 2-for-4 for the Wolverines.

Laurens will play at home against G-MU on Wednesday at 3 p.m.

Schenevus 10, Morris 2

Schenevus’ Cassandra Snyder pitched a complete game one-hitter to lead her team to a win on the road against Morris on Tuesday.

The Dragons scored four first-inning runs, stringing together a couple of hits to get on base and then knocking them in.

Morris (5-4) scored a run in the fifth and the sixth but never got close enough to threaten the Dragons’ lead.

Emma Ryther got the Mustangs only hit in the fifth inning, breaking up Snyder’s no-hitter.

“We got the bat to the ball ball, we just hit it to the defense,” Mustangs coach Julene Waffle said.

Schenevus scored four runs in the sixth.

Morris plays Richfield Springs at home at 3 p.m. on Friday.

Sharon Springs 14, G-MU 13

Abby Reynolds pitched a complete game to lead Sharon Springs to a one-run win on the road against G-MU on Tuesday.

Both teams battled all afternoon, looking for their first win of the season.

In the final half inning, with Sharon Springs leading by one, the Raiders stranded the game-tying and game-winning runs on second and third after a ground out brought the game to an end.

Hailey Mahady doubled and tripled for Sharon Springs in the win.

G-MU travels to Laurens for a doubleheader on Wednesday.

Gilboa 26, Margaretville 1

In the first game of the scheduled doubleheader, Abigail Tompkins pitched a complete game and Sierra Perry went 3-for-4 at the plate as Gilboa won decisively on the road against Margaretville on Tuesday.

Gilboa scored three first-inning runs and put the game completely out of reach in the second, scoring 11 more to push its lead to 14-0.

Margaretville’s lone run came in the bottom of the second.

Lexi Wyckoff doubled in the lopsided win for the Wildcats.

Gilboa 7, Margaretville 6

Alexa Dumas pitched a complete game from the circle to help Gilboa beat Margaretville in the second game of Tuesday’s doubleheader.

Margaretville fared much better in the second game as they went into the fifth ahead, 6-5.

Gilboa answered by scoring two runs in the top of the inning to steal the win.

The lead-off runner reached on an error, then a base hit by Keeley VanValkenburgh  put runners on second and third. The game-winning runs were brought home by a passed ball.

“We have a young team,” said Margaretville coach Beth Tanzer. “We have four freshman pitchers and just three seniors. It was really a rebuilding year but the players gained valuable experience for next year.

Worcester 10, Gilbertsville-Mount Upton 6

Worcester’s Jenna Morell had two doubles, three RBIs and three stolen bases, doing a little bit of everything for the Wolverines in their win over Gilbertsville-Mount Upton on Monday at home.

G-MU got on the board early, scoring two runs in the top of the first off of Worcester starting pitcher Allie Wilcox.

The Wolverines responded with six runs in the bottom of the second to take a 6-2 lead. G-MU committed three errors in the inning, and two Worcester hits and a walk got the offense rolling.

G-MU looked to answer in the fourth. With catcher Hunter Christian on second, the Raiders’ Ashlynn Marron hit a single to bring Christian around third and on her way home.

Unfortunately for G-MU, a great throw from Worcester’s Lily Conroe and a tag from catcher Miriam Odell kept the Raiders off the board and got the Wolverines out of the inning.

Wilcox pitched a complete game, striking out five and allowing eight hits over seven innings of work.

G-MU’s Scarlett Newman had a team-best three hits in the loss. She also scored two runs.

Conroe and teammate Lynessa Otero each had two hits for the Wolverines.
