FROSTBURG — Shae Winner drove in four runs for Mountain Ridge, which scored all 10 of its runs in the first two innings, in a 10-0, five-inning victory over Southern in their Class 1A West section semifinal Monday at Mountain Ridge.
Carlie Lewis was stifling yet again, allowing just two hits and no walks with nine of the 15 outs coming on strikeouts strikeouts as the top-seeded and defending champion Miners remained unbeaten through 19 games.
The Miners jumped on top in the bottom of the first inning with a lead-off single and a walk. Emma Baker lined an RBI double and Winner followed with a two-run single for quick 3-0 lead.
Allison Hawkins led off with a single and Anna Broadwater reached on an error to begin the second inning. The Miners strung together four consecutive singles by Jenna Miller, Baker, Winner and Lewis. Kiya Wilhelm capped the big inning with an RBI double.
Mountain Ridge will host Fort Hill on Wednesday at 4 p.m. for the section championship.
CUMBERLAND — Allegany got all of its scoring out of the way before the rains came, then relied on strong pitching to beat Northern at Long Field in the continuation of game that began Friday in Accident.
The score was already 10-3 when play was stopped with one out in the bottom of the fifth inning. When it resumed, Kiersten Rayner delivered a single in the first at-bat, but was thrown out trying to stretch it into a double.
The Campers, who didn’t get a hit in their two at-bats on Monday, finished with 10 for the game. Talia Logsdon hit two singles and a double, and winning pitcher Tori Bohrer added a single to her four innings of work on the mound.
Allegany put up two runs in the first inning, but found itself trailing after the Huskies scored three times in the bottom half.
Three more runs in the top of the second gave the Campers the lead for good, but they added two more runs in the third and three more in the fourth.
The Huskies ran into a little trouble converting runners into runs. They had 10 hits but did not score a run over the final six innings.
Erica Umbel had a double and Rayner added three singles.
“I was a little worried about having to finish against Northern, sit for a while and then come back out for Fort Hill,” said Allegany coach Rick Twigg. “I felt a little more nervous after we didn’t get a hit in our at-bats today (against Northern), but we showed good fielding and pitching, and we didn’t carry the cold hitting over to the Fort Hill game.”
Allegany lost to Fort Hill, 7-5 and finished the year with a 12-8 record. The Huskies ended up 9-9.
