Softball Northstars, Warriors roll to more wins

C-NS splits weekend doubleheader with Horseheads, Troy

Once their regular-season business with each other was done (with one victory apiece), the Liverpool and Cicero-North Syracuse softball teams proceeded to handle most of its other opposition through the rest of the busiest week of the regular season.

Moving on from that game, Liverpool romped past Oswego 12-2 on Tuesday afternoon, grabbing a 10-0 lead by the fourth inning.

Alicia Hansen fell one single short of a cycle with a home run, triple, double and four RBIs. Nicole Cerrone, Taylor Charles, Jenna Wike, Ericka Sadowski and Dominique LaRose also drove in runs as Peyton Bellrose pitched and held the Buccaneers to four hits, striking out seven.

C-NS, meanwhile, wasted no time shaking off the defeat to Liverpool. In fact, the very next day Megan Tully combined with Gabriella Corasaniti on a no-hitter as the Northstars blanked Syracuse East 6-0.

In her six innings of work, Tully struck out eight while only allowing one walk. At the plate, Meghan Bocyck smashed a home run, one of three hits on the day as she got two RBIs. Lauren Floyd also had three hits as she, along with Khaliyah Flournory, Janelle Walters and Rachelle Walters, drove in single runs.

On Wednesday, it was Dana Nicoletti’s turn to spin a pitching gem, Liverpool blanking Fayetteville-Manlius 9-0 as Nicoletti struck out 11 in a complete-game, three-hit shutout.

A three-run first inning got the Warriors on track, and befofe it was over Bellrose had hit a home run and earned three RBIs, while Hansen went four-for-four, tripling and driving in three runs. Cerrone and Wike had one RBI apiece.

C-NS got some particularly sweet payback of its own Thursday when it went to Camillus and beat West Genesee 9-0, avenging a 1-0 defeat to the Wildcats at Gillette Field on April 17.

Tully silenced WG’s batters, amassing 12 strikeouts in a two-hit shutout. C-NS also flourished at the plate, building a 4-0 lead before five runs in the seventh closed it out.
