Unadilla Valley 8, Delhi 4
DELHI – Behind a perfect day at the plate from senior Dakota Kolvik, Unadilla Valley won its second straight game Friday.
Kolvik doubled twice in a 4-for-4 day driving in two runs, while Brendan Brooker added two hits and two RBI.
Pitchers Brooker, Mitch Strom, and Austin Taylor combined to hold the Delhi hitters to six hits. "We didn't have any pitchers with proper rest, so I thought we did a good job piecing the pitching together," said UV coach Eileen Lawyer.
UV opened up its lead with four runs in the second. An error on Cory Lamb's hard groundball scored Conor Pope with the first tally. Kolvik doubled in Lamb and Jed Parker, and Brooker's double scored Kolvik to make it a 6-2 game. "The boys put together another good effort to win our second game," Lawyer said. "Everyone's contributing right now."
