Ichabod Crane 7, Lansingburgh 0
VALATIE -- Sophomore Isabella Milazzo fired a two-hit shutout with 14 strikeouts to lead Ichabod Crane to a 7-0 victory over Lansingburgh in Thursday's Colonial Council softball game.
Milazzo walked only two and surrendered just a pair of singles in helping the Riders bounce back from a 5-1 loss to Mohonasen a day earlier. Milazzo has yet to allow a run at the varsity level.
Eighth-grader Emma Scheitinger had a triple, two singles and two RBI in support of Milazzo. Mackenzie Wendelken added two singles and an RBI, Lauryn Heffner and Jenna Downey singled and Kaili Saccento drove in a run.
Julia Thompson was the losing pitcher, striking out six, walking three and allowing seven runs (one earned) and seven hits.
“This was another good outing for Bella, Riders’ coach Tracy Nytransky said. “She had a lot of strikeouts and kept their good hitters off the bases. We’ve been struggling a little with some of our bats and we finally got them going in the fifth inning.
“Lauryn Heffner led us off with a one out single, then Emma came through with a big triple to score Heffner. Jenna and Mackenzie had singles in that inning to plate runs and they made a few mistakes once we made them play the ball. We had some good run support today and it was a good win for us.”
