Whitehall Edges Argyle in ADK Consolation Game

The Whitehall softball team has shown major improvement throughout the season. This week was another example. After narrowly missing the championship game with a one-run loss to Granville, the Railroaders bounced back to edge Argyle 3-2 Friday in the Adirondack League Tournament consolation game at Moreau Rec. The win avenges a regular-season loss to the Scots.

Hits and runs were difficult to come by in the contest as Khloe Paddock for Whitehall and Maddy Eldred, and then Grace Depew for Argyle hooked up in a classic pitcher’s duel.

The Scots scored a run in the first and another in the fourth to grab a 2-0 lead.

Whitehall cut the deficit in half with a run in the bottom of the fourth to make it 2-1.

In the bottom of the sixth Brooke Austin delivered a two-run single to put the Railroaders on top 3-2.

In the seventh Whitehall cut down the potential tying run at the plate to preserve the victory.

Paddock was the winning pitcher, scattering five hits and striking out nine.

Eldred went four innings, yielding just one hit and striking out five. Depew pitched two innings, giving up two hits and two hits with four Ks.

Austin was 2 for 3 with three RBIs for the Railroaders. Marissa Eggleston contributed the only other Whitehall hit.

Becca Campbell had an RBI double for Argyle. Riley Kobor was 2 for 3. Depew and Eldred also had hits for the Scots. One of Depew’s hits was a double.

Whitehall is now 9-6. Argyle is 9-7.

Burghers Top Eagles in Consolation Game

Warrensburg bounced back from a semifinal in the Adirondack League tournament, blanking Hadley-Luzerne 7-0 in the consolation game.

Steve Schloss earned the win on the bump for the Burghers. Schloss fired a four-hitter with nine Ks in a complete game win.

Brady Cheney went 2 for 3 with an RBI to pace the Warrensburg offense.

Louis Lang and Tyler Powers each hit RBI doubles for the Burghers. Caden Allen contributed an RBI single.

Warrensburg raised their mark to 15-3 on the season.
