(2019-05-01)Tioga County Sports Report
OWEGO â€” Trailing by a run, Owego loaded the bases in the bottom of the seventh inning, only to suffer a 4-3 senior game loss to Vestal when a base-runner left early on a potential game-tying sacrifice fly.
Chelsea Sellars led off the Indiansâ€™ half of the inning with a single and Anna Felice added a one-way single. An error on a fielderâ€™s choice off the bat of Emma Howe field the bags, but Sellarsâ€™ courtesy runner was ruled to have left third base early on Emma Stevensonâ€™s fly ball to right field.
Owego took a 1-0 lead into the fourth inning, after Grace Thomas doubled and Miki Worzel singled in the first inning.
The Golden Bears tied the game on a wild pitch in the top of the fourth and took a 2-1 lead in the fifth on a walk and RBI double.
Owego came back with a pair of runs in the bottom of the frame when Taylor Aubel and Felice scored. Aubel was hit by a pitch, Sellars had a sacrifice, Felice reached on an error, and Stevenson had an RBI single.
Vestal parlayed a pair of singles, a double and a bunt into a 4-3 lead in the sixth.
Thomas went 1-for-3 with a double, Sellars was 1-for-2, Felice was 1-for-3, and Howe and Stevenson were 1-for-4.
Owego hosts Corning Friday at 5 p.m.
