“It was nice to play,” Cassadaga Valley head coach Ken Balling said. “It’s the first time we’ve played since being back from Myrtle Beach.”

Sischo went four innings, allowed five runs – one earned – on three hits, struck out three and walked three to pick up the Lady Cougars’ first win north of the Mason Dixon Line.

Salamanca 11, Silver Creek 9

SILVER CREEK – Silver Creek (0-3, 0-2) squandered a 9-5 seventh-inning lead Wednesday to Salamanca, as the Black Knights fell 11-9 in CCAA Division 2 softball action.

“We were up by four in the sixth,” Silver Creek head coach Stacie Bauer said. “And then in the seventh, we got Salamanca down to its last out, but it was a little bit of inexperience and a little bit of needing to finish the game stronger than we did. And in the bottom of the seventh, we just didn’t get the hits we needed.”

Liz Golubski had two hits and an RBI for the Black Knights while teammate Mary Joe Pearl added three RBIs. Brook Birner added an RBI in support of losing pitcher Allison Harford, who went four innings, allowed five runs on six hits, struck out three and walked two.

For Salamanca, Chelcee Stoats tossed a complete game, allowing nine runs on nine hits while striking out nine and walking seven. At the dish for the Lady Warriors, Kayla Jackson had two hits, including a double and two RBIs.
