The Oneonta Yellowjackets bounced back from their first Southern Tier Athletic Conference (STAC) loss of the season over the weekend with a resounding 16-0 victory over Norwich at home on Monday.

Oneonta (5-1, 4-1 STAC) scored in each inning except the second, and closed out the game within five innings.

Ally Baker earned the win in the circle with catcher Rilie Falconio-Gray, going three innings of hit-less ball with two strikeouts and a walk. She hit 2 for 2 and scored two runs with two RBIs.

Kelly Weeks relieved Baker in the fourth inning and allowed one hit over two innings while striking out three and not walking any. It was Norwich’s lone walk of the game.

Weeks hit 2 for 3, including a double, and had an RBI with three runs scored.

“She’s been moving up the lineup and hitting the ball well,” head coach Randy Brockway said.

Alec Colley took the loss for Norwich and was relieved by Olivia Granquist in the third.

Weeks will likely get the start on Tuesday, her first varsity STAC start of her pitching career, the foes go at it again, this time in Norwich. The game is scheduled for 4:45 p.m.

“I’m expecting the girls to go in hard,” Brockway said. “We talked about just playing our game and we still have to work on our quality at-bats and playing good defense.

“Nothing changes (after this game) other than playing the game the right way and hopefully we have a good outcome.”

Deposit 10, Bainbridge-Guilford 0

Makenzie Stiles pitched a complete game and had 12 strikeouts and battery-mate Bryn Martin went 3-for-4 with two doubles, a triple, four RBIs and three runs scored to lead Deposit over previously undefeated Bainbridge-Guilford at home on Monday.

The game remained tied for the first three innings as neither offense could get anything going.

Deposit (6-1) finally got to B-G starter Morgan Neilberg, scoring two runs in the fourth inning.

Stiles controlled the game from the circle for Deposit and B-G could not manage anything offensively as it took its first loss of the season.

“We’re hitting the ball well, our defense is playing exceptionally well and Stiles is playing well as usual,” head coach Dan Briggs said. “Everything is coming together and clicking on all cylinders for us.”

Deposit next play at Oxford on Wednesday at 4:30 p.m.

Laurens 18, Edmeston 7 

Rachelle Soucia pitched the league victory for Laurens on the road on Monday, aided by her offense scoring six in the third and five in each of the fifth and sixth innings.

Miranda Porter and Madison Bolton each had doubles for the Panthers (1-4, 1-3 TV) and Cassie Menendez, the lone senior on the squad, hit her third home run of the season. 

“She’s connecting with the ball -- they’re all inside the park -- and she’s hitting it squarely for sure,” head coach Kim Robinson said. 

Edmeston will travel to play Cherry Valley-Springfield on Tuesday. 

Roxbury 19, Margaretville 4 

Claire McDaniel pitched a complete game and Erin Garza had a triple with three RBIs to lead Roxbury to a win at home in six innings due to the run-rule.

After tacking on five more runs in the top of the fourth inning and making the score 15-3 the Warriors were unable to get back into the game and took the home loss.
