Tioga County Sports Report
MORAVIA — The Newark Valley softball team held its own for the majority of the game before a late surge lifted Moravia to a 9-5 victory in IAC action Monday.

The Cardinals struck first, plating a run in the top of the third inning, then tacking on two more in the fourth.

Moravia responded with a trio of runs in its half of the fourth, then scored two more in the fifth for a 5-4 edge after NV pushed one run across in the top of the fifth.

The Blue Devils mustered up four runs in the sixth and NV was only able to get one back in its final at-bats.

Junior Rosie Wandell threw a complete game, scattering seven hits with 10 strike outs, one walk and one hit batter. Only two Moravia runs were earned. At the plate she was 1-for-3 with a single.

Seventh-grader Kaitlyn Keith made the start behind the dish and went the distance. She also went 1-for-4 with a triple and two fielders choice. She scored twice, one run coming on a bad throw back to the pitcher.

Junior Hattie Hines went 1-for-2 with a double and a walk.

Junior Jenna Vosburgh and senior Lexi Rosengrant added one single apiece.

Alexis Freier gave up five hits and six walks while striking out seven to pick up the win. She also came through at the plate, going 3-for-4 with two runs and an RBI.

The Devils were aided by nine Newark Valley errors.

NV’s next game is scheduled for Wednesday at home vs. Union Springs.
