GREENE – Greene captured the opening game of its tournament beating Oxford Friday before falling to Dryden in the championship game Saturday afternoon.

Dryden led by a 9-0 count after four innings only to see that margin erased. Greene's seven-run fourth and three-run sixth helped knot the game at 10-10.

"We had made five of our errors in the first four innings, and seemed like every time they hit the ball, it hit an open area," said Greene coach Rick Smith of the early part of the game."

Dryden unlocked the tie with three runs in the seventh as Jordan Robinson connected on a go-ahead two-run triple, then scored an insurance run on a single.

Sydney Bennett had a two-run single in Greene's fourth, while J.B. Taft, Brittany Johns, and Laura Durdon contributed RBI hits.

Alyssa Sands finished with three hits.

The Trojans opened their game against Oxford with seven straight singles, and that preceded Maddie Brink's two-run double. In the sixth, Brink started the frame with a double, and scored on Lydia Howard's two-run homer. Later in the inning, Brink came to the plate a second time, and drove in two with a single.

Howard was 5-for-6 with five RBI, Sands had three hits and four RBI, Johns drove in three runs, and Brink scored five runs to go with her ribbies.

Oxford's Layla Kriz was 4-for-5 with three RBI; Lauren Cobb and Kylie Roys added 2-for-3 days.

Marathon ousted Oxford in the consolation game benefiting from 22 base on balls. Ashley Bush had four hits in the victory and Cortnei Bellefear drove in four runs.

Kriz's bat continued to sizzle for the Blackhawks finishing 4-for-4 to give her eight hits in nine at-bats during the two-day tournament.

Bainbridge-Guilford 8, Sherburne-Earlville 2

BAINBRIDGE – Sherburne-Earlville bounced back from its first-round loss to B-G to defeat South Kortright Saturday in the consolation game of the Sidney Federal Credit Union tourney.

Savannah Irwin was 3-for-3 in the victory, Sierra Barker went 2-for-2 at the plate, and Abbey Beaver added two hits to support winning pitcher Crystal Beckwith.

"That was the first time (Crystal) pitched a complete game for us," said S-E coach Michelle Parker. "She did a nice job for us."

In the tournament opener, B-G erupted for five runs against S-E in the third highlighted by Cadi Barber's two-run triple to move into the championship game. Marissa Thornton led the Bobcats with four hits.

Barker, Irwin, and Beaver all had two hits for the Marauders.

Friday, Sherburne-Earlville continued its run of good play in the Center State Conference upending state-ranked Holland Patent.

Locked in a 1-1 game heading to the bottom of the sixth, Kaylee Scott tripled, and scored the go-ahead run on Barker's single. Alexis Kane then doubled in Barker. Barker had two hits in the win, and Emma Hodges earned the win striking out a season-high 14 Holland Patent batters.

"Between the defense, Emma dominating on the mound, and finding our bats, we're proving we can play at a more advanced level," Parker said.

OWEGO – Owego built an early lead, and held off the Tornado's comeback in Friday's victory.

Norwich drew to within 4-3, and had the tying run on third with two outs in the seventh before Owego recorded the final out. "We had our chances, but couldn't get the big hit we needed," said Norwich coach Scott Moore.

Michayla Jenkins had two hits, two runs scored, and an RBI to lead the Owego attack.

Gabby Mirabito was 3-for-4 with an RBI on the Norwich, Shannon Moore had two hits and a single RBI, and Jordan Sanford drove in one run.
