Blackbirds End Granville’s Season

A young Voorheesville team rode a strong pitching performance from Abby Brown and took advantage of their opportunities to score runs in defeating Granville 6-0 in a Class B opening-round game at the Ken Burch Complex.

The No. 9 Blackbirds advance to face top-seeded Tamarac in the quarterfinals.

Brown spun a one-hitter with six strikeouts for Voorheesville. Brown kept the Golden Horde off balance all afternoon with a steady diet of off-speed pitches and a sneaky fastball.

Meanwhile, the defense behind Brown, who had struggled all season was flawless.

Much of the Blackbird’s offense was produced without the benefit of a hit. In the first Voorheesville took a 1-0 on a Katalina Rohloff walk and a Granville error of a sharply hit ball by Brown.

The Blackbirds increased their lead to 2-0 in the fifth sixth when Rohloff tripled and scored on an RBI single from Savannah Schmidt.

Voorheesville put the game away in the top of the seventh by plating four runs. The Blackbirds only had one hit in the frame but made full use of Golden Horde miscues.

Lauren Bascom doubled for the only Granville hit.

Bascom recorded 11 strikeouts for the Golden Horde.

Voorheesville improved to 7-11. Granville finished the season 11-5.

The key inning was the third when the Wildcats tallied three of their runs including Camadine’s blast.

Maple Hill added a single run in the sixth.

Marissa Eggleston and Sydney Ellis had the only two hits for the Railroaders.

Khloe Paddock pitched well for Whitehall, only giving up four hits while striking out nine.
