Softball Bees put big scare into C-NS

Wolcik, Campbell both pitch well in 2-1 nail-biter

— A dropped pop fly in the bottom of the third led to the Northstars' go-ahead run, Amy Van Hoven driven home on Lauren Floyd's single, but again Wolcik got out of further trouble.

In the fourth, the well-rested Campbell took over, and she proceeded to blank the potent C-NS lineup the rest of the way. Combined, Wolcik and Campbell gave up just three hits, two of them to Van Hoven, none for extra bases.

They held O'Hara without a hit, this after she went four-for-four with a home run and three doubles in C-NS's last game, a 13-0 win over West Genesee back on Monday. The two runs allowed were, by far, the fewest a Section III foe has given up to the Northstars this spring.

All of this gave B'ville a chance to pull even - if it could get to O'Hara. But it only got one good chance, in the fifth, where Campbell reached base on a dropped third strike, and pinch-runner Madeline moved to third base on a wild pitch and steal, but was stranded there when May struck out.

In fact, O'Hara, in her 4 2/3 innings of work, recorded 13 strikeouts, including three more in the seventh to close it out, leaving B'ville fans disappointed, but proud that it had made the Northstars work to the end to salvage this one.
