(2021-05-10)Tioga County Sports Report
DEPOSIT — The Deposit softball team has played in the last five Class D state championship games, winning four. Last year, the Lumberjacks merged with Hancock to form the Deposit / Hancock Eagles, but never had an opportunity to play together.
So far this season, the team has shown no negative effects from the merger or a 22-month COVID-19 layoff as it made Owego its fourth victim, rallying for a 4-3 victory Tuesday.
Down, 3-0, heading into the bottom of the fourth inning, D/H scored a pair of runs, then tacked on two more in the sixth to grab a 4-3 advantage.
Owego notched a pair of runs in the third and added another in the fourth.
The Indians' Lauren Gilbert scattered eight hits across six innings, striking out eight and walking three. She surrendered three earned runs.
She also wielded a hot bat for the visitors, going 3-for-4 with an RBI.
Taylor Dalton was equally impressive at the plate, also going 3-for-4. She scored one run.
Jordan Greeno smacked a double and added a run and RBI. Natalie Donovan contributed a hit and RBI, and Layla Etienne tacked on a run.
Kaitlyn Macumber picked up the win, allowing eight hits and three earned runs, walking three and striking out nine in six innings. Danielle Seymour earned the save.
Macumber went 3-for-4 with a double and three RBI. Laycee Drake was 2-for-2 with a double, Addison Mackowski went 2-for-3 with two runs and Payten Gill was 1-for-2 with an RBI.
Owego (1-2) hosts Oneonta Wednesday at 5 p.m.
