Bronco 12U: Horsham Banshee's 8 Virginia Glory 7 (F/9)

In the Bronco 12U Championship Game, in what was a back-and-forth game all afternoon long, down a run with one out in the ninth inning, the Banshee's Genevieve Ebaugh scored Megan Kummery on a double to centerfield, tying the game at seven apiece. The next batter, Madison Seidel, proved to be the hero by poking a ground ball through the right side to score Ebaugh to win the game 8-7 in extra innings.

Three different lead changes and one tie led to a 6-6 game going into extra innings. The Banshee's almost ended it in the eighth inning, when, with a runner on third base, Kummery hit a bullet to center field, but Glory center fielder Christina Willemsen made the catch of the day to prolong the game. With momentum on their side, the Glory scored the go-ahead run on a Haley Greer single to left field and advanced Alyssa Sternbeck to third base, but two consecutive outs ended the inning in what was the Glory's last chance at adding to their lead.

The Banshee's started off the scoring in the bottom of the first, when third baseman Sophia Peterson crushed her first of two home runs on the day to give her team an early 2-0 advantage. The Glory got a run back in the top of second inning, when Banshee's pitcher Seidel walked the bases loaded and then walked Olivia Iannizzi to score Daria Haynie.

The Glory added on and took the lead 4-2 in the top of the third when right fielder Natalie Elias reached on a Ebaugh error, scoring Karlee Hughes and Karley Beltran, and then Sternbeck brought home Elias on a single to center field. The lead would be short lived, as Peterson's second home run, this time a three-run shot, made it 5-4 Banshee's, after three complete innings.

In the bottom of the fourth, the Banshee's tacked on a very important run when Seidel singled home Kummery, but the Glory still had fight left. In the top of the fifth inning, Haley Greer reached on an error, which scored Elias, but Sternbeck was caught trying to take third base, and then a double play ended what could have been a big inning for the Glory. 

It was then that the Glory turned to relief pitcher Maddie Edwards, who ended up providing 4.1 innings of quality relief, only allowing one earned run on two hits, while striking out one and walking one. Edwards silenced the Banshee's bats until the final inning.

Ebaugh picked up the win and pitched arguably as well in relief as Edwards, going 3.2 innings, striking out three, while not allowing a run on five hits.

Pony 14U: Horsham Banshee's 6 Fort Royal, Virginia Fire 2

A four-run, top of the third inning proved to be all the offense Horsham needed, and its solid defense caused Fort Royal to strand 11 runners on base, as the Banshee's claimed the PONY East Zone Girls Softball Nationals Pony 14U championship 6-2 over the Fire. 

Fort Royal's left fielder Alyssa Hoggatt broke open the scoring in the bottom of the first inning when her double scored center fielder Taylor Bowers to make it 1-0. After leaving runners stranded on base in the first two-consecutive innings, the Banshee's finally broke through in the third inning, when it looked as if the squad was going to squander another opportunity. During Kylee Guerrera's at-bat, with two outs, Banshee's center fielder Sam Nuneviller scored on a wild pitch from third base to tie the game at one. After Guerrera walked, right fielder Korynn Bischoff knocked a bases-clearing triple into right field to give her team a 3-1 lead. Short stop Hannah Reimel's single scored Bischoff, and the Banshee's ended their two-out rally with a 4-1 lead.

The Fire had a chance to make a comeback in the bottom of the fourth inning, when a single, walk and a Banshee's error resulted in a Hannah Ruffner run scored to make it 4-2. Unfortunately for Fort Royal, a strike out, pop out and ground out left two runners stranded in scoring position. 

Mary Picozzi then relieved Banshee's starter Kylie Woloshyn, after she went four strong innings, allowing two runs, one earned on five hits, while striking out one and walking two. Picozzi followed her teammate counterpart by finishing the final three innings without allowing a run, on one hit with a strikeout and two walks.

Horsham added on two runs for good measure in the top of the seventh, when a Fire error off a batted ball by Reimel scored Guerrera from second base, and Taylor Nelson's single to right field scored Reimel.

Nine different Banshee's recorded hits on the day and five different batters scored runs, while three had multi-hit days. Woloshyn picked up the win for her efforts.

Colt 16U: Buffalo, New York Inferno 2 Franklin, Connecticut Bombers (Teal) 1

Considering the Franklin, Connecticut Bombers (Teal) were coming off a semifinal contest in which they won a 1-0 defensive struggle over the Ashburn, Virginia Shooting Stars and the Buffalo, New York Inferno were throwing their ace, McKenzie Suto, fans at Philip A. Bolen Park in Leesburg, Virginia were expecting another thrilling, close contest. The Colt 16U Championship Game of the PONY East Zone Girls Softball Nationals lived up to expectations, until the Inferno broke through in the third inning.

Designated hitter Syd Mackintosh began the inning with a leadoff walk and moved up to second on a Cara Leone groundout. Second baseman Syd Belicki singled, advancing Mackintosh to third and short stop Iris Kahris came through with a double to centerfield that scored both Mackintosh and Belicki. Both runs were pivotal in Buffalo’s quest for a title. 

Throughout the remaining three and a half innings, Franklin’s inability to cash in with runners in scoring position marred its chances to win the game. In the top of the fourth inning, Suto was able to escape trouble, after the Bombers’ first two hitters of the inning reached base, by sending the next three down in order. 

After turning to Maria Hanchuk, who pitched a complete game shutout with 11 strikeouts in the semifinals, going into the fourth inning, the Bombers completely shut down the Inferno offense. Hanchuk finished the game going 3.2 innings with six strikeouts and two walks, while allowing just one hit. Momentum seemed to swing Franklin’s way in the top of the fifth inning, when Lindsay Curto scored on a passed ball and Maya Waldron advanced to third base, but Suto struck out Shea Vignone to end the threat.

In the top of the sixth inning, in a downpour, the Bombers looked to strike again, as Kelsie LaHouse walked with one out and Kacie Shea singled, and then both runners advanced a base on an Abbe Minor fielder’s choice. Unfortunately for the Bombers, the Inferno’s Valerie Wales came up with her first of two amazing catches in left field that saved the day for the Inferno.

With two outs more to spare, down a run in the top of the seventh inning, the Bombers bench thought they tied the game when Shea Gendron crushed a ball to deep left field, but Wales’ second sensational catch and Hanchuk’s groundout ended the game 2-1 Inferno. 

Suto earned the win after pitching a complete game and allowing just a run (unearned) on six hits, while striking out four and walking two.

Palomino 18U: East Bridgewater, Massachusetts Drifters 12 Sugarloaf, Pennsylvania Stripes & Strikes 2 (F/5)

Contrasting the Colt 16U Championship Game, offense was the name of the game in the Palomino 18U title match. The East Bridgewater, Massachusetts Drifters jumped out to an early 5-0 lead in the bottom of the first inning against the Sugarloaf, Pennsylvania Stripes & Strikes and never relented, resulting in a 12-2 10-run-rule victory to win the championship.

In that first inning, starting off, the Drifters’ Cassie Graca doubled to center field and Jackie Gavin brought her home on her double to left to make it 1-0. After a walk and a fielder’s choice, Sophie Halverson crushed a ball to left center for a double, scoring Gavin and Emily Critch, but resulting in Liv Labbe getting caught going home. After a ground out, River Glenn doubled to center field, scoring Halverson, and Glenn scored on an error during Clara DeCarvalho’s single. 

The Stripes & Strikes battled back in the top of the second inning, as Hope Kinney singled, Celine Podlesney singled and Alyssa Stover brought Kinney home on her single to right field, while moving Podlesney to third base. Two outs later, Josie Dershem doubled to center field to score Podlesney and advance Kinney to third, but Drifters’ starter Kyleigh O’Donnell got Marissa Trivelpiece to ground out and end the inning at 5-2 Drifters.

East Bridgewater added to its lead in the bottom of the third inning, when Emily Critch led off the inning with a double and Labbe brought her home on a single to center. 

The game got away from the Stripes & Strikes in the bottom of the fourth inning, as Courtney Fisher began the inning with a double, Elizabeth D’Agostino walked and Julia Vaillancourt picked up an RBI on a ground ball single to the left side. After Graca walked, Gavin singled, scoring both D’Agostino and Vaillancourt to make it 9-2. Following a line out and a walk to Labbe, Stripes & Strikes starter Podlesney was pulled. 

Halverson continued to crush the ball, recording yet another hit and scoring Graca. Then O’Donnell reached on an error, which scored Gavin and advanced the Drifters’ runners each a base. With a 10-run rule victory in sight, Glenn hit a weak ground ball down to first base, Podlesney stepped on first for the out and gunned the ball home, but Labbe’s speed was good enough to score and win the game for East Bridgewater 12-2. 

Collecting the win in the shortened game was Courtney Fisher, who, in just seven pitches, picked up three outs and allowed one hit. She relieved O’Donnell, who pitched well to start the game, going three innings and striking out two, but allowing two earned runs on five hits and walking one.

Leading the offensive charge for the Drifters were Gavin and Halverson, who both recorded two hits and three RBI on the day, while Stover was two-for-two with an RBI for the Stripes & Strikes.
