NORWICH – Whitney Point scored four runs in the fifth inning to take the lead from Norwich, and improved to 8-0 on the season with a 7-2 victory over the Tornado in the 1st Annual Pennysaver/Evening Sun softball tournament Saturday afternoon.
Norwich took the lead in the bottom of the fourth on three straight hits. Molly Moore and Shelby Condon reached on crisp singles, and senior Ashley Thomas gapped a pitch to left center for a two-run double that put NHS in front 2-1.
Whitney Point turned that deficit around quickly. After the Eagles’ Casey Stahl reached on an error, Karli Theleman followed with a single and McKay Ross’ single to right field was misplayed allowed two runs to score for the lead. Winning pitcher Chelsea Ellerson padded the lead with an RBI single, and Norwich’s third error of the inning led to the final run.
