Whitney Point 4, Norwich 2
NORWICH – Whitney Point scored two runs in the top of the seventh to break a two-all tie and win at Norwich Thursday.
Aaron Singer and James Andrew, the number eight and nine hitters for the Golden Eagles, singled and eventually scored on Dustin Crandall’s two-out, two-strike infield grounder that resulted in a throwing error.
“We stranded a lot of runners in scoring position, and the errors we committed occurred at the wrong time of the game,” said Norwich coach John Martinson. “When you make mistakes at that time of the game (in the seventh), you cannot expect to win.”
Mackay Hotaling had an RBI single in the second for Norwich and Richie Bonney led NHS with two hits. Norwich hosts Chenango Valley today.

Walton 8, Greene 7
WALTON – Walton overcame Greene’s 6-3 lead with timely fifth and sixth innings to defeat the visiting Trojans.
An error, walk, and a single loaded the bases in the sixth for Walton in the sixth, and a base on balls scored the first run. After tying the game, Walton’s Pat O’Brien hit an “excuse-me” single past a drawn-in Greene infield for the game-winner.
