In the first inning Williamsburg had a run and made the score 1-0.  Neither team scored until the fifth inning.  The game was tied 2-2 heading into the sixth inning.  Bellwood then erupted for 11 runs to blow past the Pirates.

“It was rough in the beginning because we struck out way more than we’d like.  Towards the end of the game, we locked down out defense and made our bats hot. I was really proud of our performance,” said Edyn Convery.

Jacqueline Finn delivered three hits for the Blue Devils.

Taylor Shildt had two hits and an RBI.  She struck out four and was the winning pitcher.

Edyn Convery and Maddie Miller each hit a double.  Miller also struck out one.

Convery, Caroline Showalter, Miller, Laycee Clark, Shildt and Kelcie Dennis each had one RBI.

B-A’s record is now 3-2 overall. They will go up against the Claysburg Kimmel Bulldogs Wednesday.

“Claysburg has always been a tough team, but they lost their standing pitcher, so hopefully our mind will be right and we can get the win,” said Convery.
