CBA’s loss was far more surprising, given that it had just come off back-to-back wins over Phoenix (1-0) and East Syracuse-Minoa (2-1 in eight innings), and Chittenango was going through a mid-season slump and had just lost 7-0 to Fayetteville-Manlius.
Here, though, the Bears went ahead 2-1 with a pair of third-inning runs and, after CBA reclaimed the lead 3-2 in the top of the fourth, Chittenango tied it again in the bottom of that frame.
And there it stayed until the seventh, when the Bears put home the winning run against Sheridan, who only managed five strikeouts and allowed eight hits, two each to sisters Brianna and Kaleigh Koegel. Molly O’Brien and Clare Gollegly led CBA, each with two hits and an RBI.
On Wednesday, the Brothers did prevail, 1-0, over Central Square in an eight-inning, non-league contest. It was 0-0 until the bottom of the eighth. O’Brien doubled and came around to score the game’s only run on Kelly Bewley’s single. All told, Bewley had three hits, with Jessica Valerino adding two hits. Sheridan struck out 12 and held the Red Hawks to seven hits.
