STAC SOFTBALL: OWEGO RALLIES, COMES UP SHORT (2024-03-28)

Tioga County Sports Report
OWEGO — The Owego softball team surrendered the first six runs, then rallied to within two before dropping a 13-8 decision to Windsor in STAC action Thursday.

The Black Knights rode a five-run second-inning uprising to a 6-0 advantage, but Owego managed to get a run back in its half of the third.

Windsor tacked on a pair of runs in the third, but the River Hawks did not appear discouraged by the 8-1 deficit, erupting for five runs in their half of the inning.

Brooklyn Gaurnier drove in two runs with a single, Kylie Grippen had an RBI single, and Lexi Cheeseman and Miley Laubach scored one run each when they drew bases on balls.

The Knights held onto the two-run edge heading into the sixth, then put some breathing room between themselves and their hosts with another five-run uprising.

Owego managed to plate just two more runs after that.

Maia Smith went 4-for-4 on the evening for the River Hawks while Gaurnier and Ava Brown collected two RBI apiece. Laubach had two of Owego’s five walks, and the team also stole four bases.

Windsor (2-0) outhit Owego, 15-11, and had five stolen bases. The Black Knights played errorless ball on defense.

Owego (0-2) is off until April 9 when it hosts Seton Catholic (0-2) at 4:30 p.m.
