Hamsphire escapes Elkins with 2-1 win

ELKINS, W.Va. — Despite leaving a baker’s dozen of runners on the bases Saturday afternoon, Hampshire still found a way to claw its way past Elkins for a 2-1 win that improved the top-ranked Trojans to 17-1.

Hampshire managed a run in the first inning and came around with another in the fourth to take a 2-0 lead. Elkins scored its only run in the bottom of the fifth and put runners on the corners before Shane Ennis induced a grounder to third for the final out.

Offensively for the Trojans, Matt Maiers hit a double and a single, Trevor Largent and Ennis both added a couple singles. David Delawder gave his team an RBI single.

Hampshire will try for wins 18 and 19 when its hosts Frankfort in a doubleheader at 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday.

CUMBERLAND — Carter Imes drove in six runs and Bryce Nightengale struck out nine to lead Allegany over Frankfort in five innings Saturday at Allegany High School.

Allegany finished with 13 hits to the Falcons nine. Each team committed three errors.

Chris Fram and Wade McGee each reached base four times. Fram was 2 for 3 with two base hits and three RBI. McGee had two base hits and two RBI. Imes drove in his six runs with three doubles and Matt Oleksik and Ryan Murphy each had a double.

Northern    7

Keyser    2


KEYSER, W.Va. — Northern took advantage of every opportunity it received, building a 5-0 lead despite being no-hit as deep as the fifth inning during a AMAC win for the Huskies Saturday afternoon.

Keyser’s Josh Bane carried a no-hitter into the fourth inning, but because of walks and errors, the Huskies were able to build a 5-0 lead by scoring twice in the first inning and three more for the fourth. After the no-hitter was broken up, Seth Mast led Northern in hitting with two singles.

Jerad Fike and Trevon Jones each finished with a single and one run batted in.

Freshman Aaron Rodeheaver tossed a complete game, allowing no earned runs and striking out five. He allowed five singles to five separate players.

Northern (9-7, 7-5) plays at home on Monday against Mountain Ridge. Keyser (0-18, 0-11) is at Bishop Walsh on Monday.

The Northern junior varsity team split a doubleheader with Hampshire Saturday afternoon, edging the Trojans 5-4 before losing 20-5.

Hunter Mallow hit a walk-off single in the bottom of the seventh to win the first game. Tyler  McClintock drove in two with two singles and Ben Beeman knocked in one with a single.

Hampshire Judy hit two singles, while Kesner hit a double and a single.

Meshach Metz entered with the bases loaded and two outs in the seventh inning, but escaped to preserve the win.

Kesner drove in three runs on with a triple, double and a single and Roy batted in two with three singles. Veach singles twice, as did Ault, who also had two RBIs.

For Northern (6-4-1), Metz singled twice and Brandon Raley hit a two-run single.

Bishop Walsh    5

Forest Hills    4


BOSWELL, Pa. — Stephen Miller’s walk-off RBI single gave Bishop Walsh a win over Forest Hills to advance to the championship game of the North Star Tournament Saturday where they lost to the host team after leading 3-1 in the last inning.

Alex Murphy’s RBI double for Forest Hills tied it in the top of the sixth.

Hunter Marrale tripled to lead off the bottom of the seventh. Brandon Reed and Quincy Redmon were both intentionally walked to get to Miller who made them pay with a line drive to right-center field to beat Forest Hills.

Miller singled twice in all. Marrale also doubled and pitched a complete game to get the win. Joel Whetzel went 3 for 3.

The Spartans led 3-1 going into the bottom of the seventh against North Star. Brady Shroyer hit a lead-off double. After two walks, Shane Supanick, committed to play at Pitt, hit a two-run double to tie it. Tony Strasiser followed that with a two-run double to win the tournament.

Bishop Walsh (1-10) hosts Keyser Monday at 4:30 p.m.

Southern JV    6

OAKLAND — Zack Hanline struck out 10 hitter, giving up two runs on three hits in a complete game win for Southern over Northern at Broadford Park Friday.
