WG softball dominates league slate

With a quartet of impressive wins, the West Genesee softball team built its mark to 10-1, one of the best starts in the program's history.

Steady offensive work helped characterize the Wildcats' trip to Henninger last Monday that saw WG beat the Black Knights 10-1.

Rallies in the first two innings gave the Wildcats a quick 5-0 lead, but it added runs in the fifth, sixth and seventh innings just to be sure.

On the mound, Ashley Amidon allowed four hits in her latest complete-game effort. Mackeznie Glynn finished with three RBIs, including a double, while Kailey Ritch smacked a home run and triple, and joined Sarah Donegan as they each drove in two runs. Jacki Bovay also doubled.

WG got even more productive in Tuesday's rain and gloom, tearing up Corcoran in a 19-4 romp over the Cougars.

It was 2-2 when, in the top of the second inning, the Wildcats batted around and finished with nine runs, and it tacked on a six-run sixth inning, too.

Gabby Lustrinelli got a turn on the mound and pitched a complete game. She also drove in a run as Christina Sakran earned two RBIs. Glynn and Donegan had one RBI apiece.

Now the Wildcats took its show to Auburn, where Amidon again excelled as the Wildcats blanked the Maroons 9-0.

Throwing a one-hitter, Amidon waited for her teammates to start hitting. A modest 2-0 lead in the early going was nice, but WG took charge by scoring three times in the fifth inning and four times in the top of the sixth.

In all, the Wildcats had 14 hits, including Bovay's double as she finished with three RBIs. Deanna Apps drove in two runs, while Glynn, Lustrinelli and Trish Andrews each picked up one RBI.

WG played for the fourth time in as many days on Thursday and again found the win column, beating Central Square 7-3.
