Sabers thwart Norwich with big third inning

Softball

Susquehanna Valley 13, Norwich 3

NORWICH Norwich gave up nine runs in the top of the third inning to drop its fifth straight game on Monday.

Katelyn Page had a two-run single to start the SV inning, and Cici Clifford's grand slam capped the uprising.

"There were a couple of times we had two strikes on a batter, and Sus Valley put the ball in play," said Norwich coach Scott Moore. "Their extra-base hits were hit hard, but the rest of the balls just found holes, and their kids ran around the bases."



Jordan Sanford and Gabby Mirabito had RBI hits in the sixth for Norwich, and Bridget Murphy tripled in the seventh and scored on Shannon Moore's single.

Norwich (2-7) is at Windsor today.

Little Falls 11, Sherburne-Earlville 4

SHERBURNE A three-run error in the fifth inning allowed Little Falls to rally from a four-run deficit in Monday's win.

With the bases loaded, Hannah Becker hit a line drive to third base that was misplayed in the outfield allowing all three baserunners and Becker to score.

"Emma (Hodges) did a great job on the mound trying the making things work and keeping the ball in play," said S-E coach Michelle Parker. "Defensively, we just didn't play well behind her."

Lauren Bennett had two hits for Little Falls, a Section III Class C finalist a season ago.

S-E's Abbey Beaver was 2-for-2 with a double and a triple, and Sierra Barker hit a solo home run in the third inning.
