Simmons pitches GSA softball over Central

East Corinth- The Central Red Devils softball team had scored 38 runs in 3 games to begin their 2015 season.  The pitching of Adie Simmons shut down the Red Devils in a dominant performance in the circle to help the George Stevens Academy Eagles down the Red Devils 10-2 on Monday afternoon in East Corinth.

GSA would jump to the lead in the top of inning number one as a bases loaded walk, the third of the inning, would force in the games first run and it was 1-0 Eagles.  Some sloppy defense in the game would also help GSA as the Devils would committ 2 of their 4 errors in the top of the second that was also highlighted by a 2 run RBI double from Katrinna Limeburner and a Sarah Mullen RBI single to make it 5-0.  The early pressure would force Central starting pitcher Tiffany Smith out of the game after only 1.1 innings and she was replaced by Konnar Kirlin.

Central would get a run on a throwing error by GSA catcher Mullen in the bottom of the second as her errant throw trying to pick off Logan Reardon who had been hit by a pitch and stole second would end up in center field allowing Reardon to score to make it 5-1.  Lily Cox would hit a 2 run RBI single in the top of the third to make it 7-1 GSA. The Devils would get their first hit of the game in the bottom of the third as Cheyenne Edgerly got an infield hit.
Natasha Miller would cut into the Eagles lead with an RBI single in the fourth to make it 7-2 but thats the last hit the Devils would get.  A pair of Central errors in the fifth and a 2 run RBI single by Olivia Stevenson would put GSA up by 8 and would finish the scoring.

Smith picked up the loss in the circle going to 2-2 on the season and allowed 4 runs 2 earned on one hit in her 1.1 innings pitched.  Kirlin in relief went 5.2 innings giving up 6 runs only 3 earned on 8 hits with 1 walk and 6 strikeouts.  Simmons was the star on the day improving her record to 3-3 going the full 7 innings allowing 2 runs only 1 earned 2 hits 3 walk and 8 strikeouts.

GSA improves to 3-3 and will travel to Bucksport for a matchup with the Golden Bucks on Wednesday at 4:30 while Central who falls to 2-2 will host Orono, with Orono being the home team, on Tuesday at 3:30 p.m.

Stearns would take their only lead of the contest in the bottom of the second inning as Jessica Girsa hit a line drive two out double to left center to score two and put the Minutemen ahead 2-1.  Stearns staring pitcher Girsa would get two quick outs in the top of the third but thats when Central broke the game open.
5 Central hits that included 2 more RBI's from Kirlin on a 2 run double, a 2 run RBI double from Sidney Potvin and a 2 run single from Emma Campbell would highlight the 8 run attack that put Central up 9-2.

Stearns would hold Central to just 2 runs over the next three innings and would cut the lead to 11-7 headed into the final frame of the ballgame.  Central was able to tack on in the top half of the seventh as Kirlin again came up with a big hit, this time a long 2 RBI double to left field that nearly cleared the fence. Reardon followed with her 3rd and 4th RBI with a linedrive single to center field and the 5 run inning would end the scoring as the Devils took the 9 run victory. Kirlin and Reardon were a combined 7-10 with 9 RBI's.  Audry Dunstan had 3 RBI's to lead Stearns.

Bucksport softball slips past Central

East Corinth- The Bucksport Golden Bucks softball team took advantage of a big third inning and the pitching of starter Sami Goode to hold off a late Central rally and take a 5-4 win on Wednesday afternoon.

Bucksport started the scoring in the second inning off Central starter Tiffany Smith.  With two outs Julia Zavalza would hit a long fly ball to left field over the head of Central outfielder Cheyenne Edgerly and off the bottom of the fence for a standup double.  The next hitter Madysen Robichaud hit a sharp ground ball out to left field that was misplayed by Edgerly going between her legs and allowing Zavalza to score to make it 1-0 Bucks.  The Bucks would break the game open a little in a pivotal third inning as Smith would walk 2 batters with the bases loaded and also allow a 2 run RBI single off the bat of Kim Nason to make it 5-0.

The game would remain a 5-0 score until the bottom of the fourth when the Devils broke on the board. With one out Aly Crocker hit a single to center field and then was followed by a walk to Emily Oko. Edgerly then hit into a fielders choice catching Crocker between second and third base and she was tagged for out number two. Sidney Potvin then hit an RBI single to right center scoring pinch runner Cassidy Lessner and then Tiffany Smith would hit another single scoring Edgerly to cut the lead to 5-2.

Bucksport loaded the bases with nobody out in the top of the fifth with three straight hits but Smith was able to get a strikeout, a popout to second, and a fly out to left field to get out of the jam. Crocker was at it again in the sixth inning with an RBI double and the Devils were within 5-3.  Central would retire the Bucks in order in both the sixth and seventh to stay within two runs.  Crocker would finish her 4-4 day at the plate in the seventh with one out with another RBI hit this time a single and it was 5-4.  Emily Oko followed with another single to put runners at first and second.  Goode then struckout Edgerly and Potvin connected on a hard line drive that looked destined for right field that may tie the game but was instead snagged by second baseman Emily Hunt to end the game.

Both pitchers had a solid day in the circle.  Smith (1-1) went 7 innings and allowed 3 runs all earned 8 hits walked 3 and had 4 strikeouts for the Devils. Goode (3-1) also went 7 innings and allowed 4 runs all earned on 13 hits 1 walk and also 11 strikeouts for the Golden Bucks. Bucksport is now 3-1 on the season and will play at Searsport on Friday.  Central is now 1-1 and will play at Stearns on Saturday.
