CUMBERLAND — Colton Sivic went 3 for 3 with a three-run home run to power Allegany to an 8-4 win over Fort Hill in both teams season opener on a chilly Friday afternoon at Campobello.

Trenton Eirich started the big inning by being hit by a pitch and Josh Marchini walked. After a fly out, Madison Wolford singled home two runs to increase the lead to 4-0. Chris Fram reached on an error and Sivic followed with a three-run blast over the left field fence to make it 7-0.

Fort Hill, down 8-0, rallied in the top of the seventh, loading the bases with a walk, a hit batter and a single by K’shaun Powell. Dalton Gaus hit a two-run single, but Matt Oleksik, the fourth Allegany pitcher, came on and fanned three of the next four hitters to end it.

Allegany pitchers combined for 14 strikeouts. Starter Bryce Nightengale struck out nine in 4 1-3 innings, Eirich fanned two in 1 2-3 innings and Oleksik struck out three in the seventh.

Sivic finished with a homer, two singles and four RBIs to lead a nine-hit attack. Ryan Murphy stroked three singles.

Powell had two singles and Gaus a single and two RBIs for Fort Hill.

Allegany’s Thursday game with Keyser has been rescheduled for April 3. The Campers next game is Monday, at Hampshire, at 5 p.m.

SHORT GAP, W.Va. — Tim Arnold and Cole Smith had RBI singles during a four-run sixth inning as Frankfort built a big lead and held off Musselman for its first win.

The Falcons led 2-0 after five innings. Braiden Popluhar led off the sixth with a walk, and Gage Shaffer and Ryan Chase drew one-out walks to load the bases. Tyler Conley drove in the first run with a sacrifice fly to deep left field, and after an intentional walk to Josh McNeil, Arnold stroked a two-run single to make it 5-0. Smith singled to knock in McNeil and complete the inning.

Musselman scored four runs in the top of the seventh, with Thomas Presley hitting a three-run double. Three of the runs were unearned because of two Frankfort errors

Colton Dorsey got the win, pitching 6 1-3 innings and allowing one earned run, walking four and striking out six.

Petersburg     10

East Hardy    0

PETERSBURG, W.Va. — Winning pitcher Brandon George hit a two-run double in a five-run fourth inning to lead Petersburg past East Hardy.

George’s two-run double, RBI fielder’s choices off the bats of Brian George and Ryan Colaw, and an RBI single by Justin Smith came in the five-run fourth, which boosted the lead to 9-0.

Tyler Mongold and Brady Hinkle singled to account for East Hardy’s only hits.
