River Hill junior starting pitcher Shaun Davis was in control through 4 2/3 innings, helping the visiting Hawks to a 5-0 lead over the Scorpions. Then Oakland Mills senior Joerlyn Guerrero poked a single into right field and the next five batters reached base. Seniors Ryan and Ben Looper had RBI singles and Junior Arderii Brown had a two RBI double.

Davis was able to regroup and soldier on to get the last out of the inning to preserve a 5-5 tie. The Oakland Mills defense faltered in the sixth inning, allowing River Hill to score a run and take a 6-5 lead. The Hawks held that lead into the bottom of the seventh inning.

With two outs junior Paul Lebert took his lead from third base, Ben Looper was behind him on second base, Arderii Brown was down to his last strike with a 1-2 count. A wild pitch scored Lebert and then Looper smartly recognized the loose ball and came sliding home with the winning run.

Lebert, making his varsity start, was the hero of the game by reaching base three times and scoring two runs in the Scorpions victory. Alex Stokes gave up one earned run through 5 innings and Ryan Looper got the win pitching the final two innings.

Glenelg — 14, Centennial — 9 (10 innings)

The Gladiators scored five times in the top of the 10th to earn the extra-inning win, with Garrett Walker delivering what was the game-winning RBI with a single.

Glenelg finished with 12 hits, while Centennial had 10.

Connor Leard (3-6) and Tad Henley each had multiple hits for the Gladiators, while Walker stole three bases.

Dylan Watson, Zach Steen and Jack Pistner each had multiple hits to pace the Centennial offense.

SOFTBALL:

Centennial (8-4, 8-5) — 6, Glenelg (6-6, 8-7) — 1

Jordan Hinz pitched her third gem of the week, facing only one batter over the minimum through four innings while while fanning two and allowing a hit. The defense did the rest of the work.

In the bottom of the fourth, Lauren Marcotte would lead off with a single and Erin McGuire would put the ball in play to score Marcotte. Dalaysia Hammond then hit a double to give the Eagles two on with one out. Gussie Ruckdeschel would clear the bases with a triple to right field and then eventually score on a Sarah Sopchick ground ball.

Glenelg would get their only run in the top of the fifth. Hoffman singled with one out and found her way home on a ground ball hit by Madi Wingert.

Centennial immediately got that run back in the bottom of the fifth. Phelps and Marcotte singled back to back. McGuire then drove Phelps in with a one-out RBI.
