ADDISON COUNTY — In high school softball play late last week, Mount Abraham hosted and won three games, including winning one-run games against local rivals Middlebury and Otter Valley; Vergennes lost its first game; and OV won and MUHS lost other contests.

EAGLES

On Thursday, the Eagles’ scored three run in the third inning to edge visiting MUHS, 4-3. Ashley Boise’s two-run double keyed the big inning, Mary Kate Clark andDani Forand picked up RBIs, and Madi Wood poked a pair of hits. Sam Forand earned the win with three innings of one-hit, one-run pitching. For MUHS, Payton Buxton took the loss despite striking out 11, and Janelle Mandigo had an RBI.

On Friday, the Eagles rallied in the bottom of the eighth to edge OV, 11-10. The Otters took the lead in the eighth when Cortney Poljacik homered for the fourth straight game to make it 10-9, but Dani Forand’s bases-loaded, one-out hit in the bottom of the inning gave the Eagles the victory.

Kendra Thompson drove in four runs on two hits for the Eagles, and Rachael McCormick earned the pitching win in relief. Sam Reiss,Meghan Livingston and Melanie Rotax all had three hits for Mount Abe, and Tiffany Tracey added two.

For OV,Taylor Aines drilled a three-run homer, and Amy Jones went 2-for-3. OV saw its four-game winning streak snapped and dropped to 4-3.

On Saturday, the Eagles improved to 6-1 by besting visiting St. Johnsbury, 4-1. McCormick tossed a complete game, fanning 10, to earn the win. Livingston drove in two runs, and Wood added an RBI. 

TIGERS

On Saturday, the Tigers took an early 3-1 lead at Fair Haven, thanks in part to Hannah Lawrence’s triple and single. But the Slaters tied the game on Morgan Brown’s two-run single in the third and later added runs on a passed ball and Anna Fabian’s RBI single for a 5-3 win. Buxton took the loss, and Fabian tossed a four-hitter for the win. The Tigers fell to 1-4, with their four losses coming by a total of six runs. Fair Haven improved to 3-3.

OTTERS

On Thursday, the Otters topped visiting Leland & Gray, 17-2, as Aines earned the pitching win and drilled four hits. Poljacik also knocked out four hits, homered and drove in six runs, and Jones lofted a three-run homer and singled twice.

COMMODORES

On Thursday, visiting Division I power Essex dealt VUHS its first loss, 18-2, in five innings as Hornet pitcher Allie Rutz fanned more than a dozen batters. Emilee Trudo had three hits for the 3-1 Commodores, but took the pitching loss; she struck out five.
