GREENE – Greene won its home tournament for the first time defeating two-time defending champion Chenango Forks in the first game, then knocking off 2008 Section IV Class C finalist Tioga in the title game.



The Trojans never trailed in the championship game, although a two-run homer in the sixth by Tioga’s Kari Walkley drew the Tigers to within 3-2.

Greene answered back immediately. Erin Smith doubled, and winning pitcher Rebecca Hanrahan moved the margin back to three runs with a two-run round-tripper.

“It was a great experience for us to go against a top-caliber pitcher (Tioga’s Sarah Wayson),” said Greene coach Rick Smith. “We didn’t stop playing when the score became close and we came through. We’re having better at-bats, we’re making contact, and our confidence as a team continues to rise.”

Greene established the early lead getting a two-run triple from Caitlin Willis in the fourth.

Hanrahan had 13 strikeouts and allowed four hits to match Tioga’s Wayson, who struck out nine and surrendered five Greene hits.
