NORWICH – The Chenango County matchup between the Norwich and Greene Pony League teams took place June 15, at 6 p.m., with Norwich moving to 2-0 after a late seventh inning push gave them the lead for the win at 6-5.
“The first innings was the worst hitting I’ve seen so far from us, they just weren’t stretching out the counts. They just weren’t swinging at the good pitches. We were popping up and weren’t getting on base,” said Norwich Pony League head coach Nick McCullough.
Greene would jump on the board early in the first with a two run inning, followed by a three run inning coming their way in the fourth as well.
At that point in the game, Norwich could only muster one run to answer Greene's five.
This 5-1 lead would be given to Greene due to some superb itching to start the game from their first pitcher, Haskell, who pitched three innings and struck out three Norwich batters. Greene would elect to make a pitching change twice with Conklin coming in for two innings and Scott closing the final inning of the game out, securing two more strikeouts a piece.
