Sentinels, Panthers defeated

Ticonderoga and Crown Point lost in the quarterfinals of the New York State Public High School Athletic Association softball tournament June 9.

Sentinels fall

Ticonderoga hurt itself with seven errors as it lost to Hoosick Falls, 5-2, in the Class C tournament.

Hoosick scored three times on an error and two passed balls before a Samantha Scott singled to give the Panthers 4-0 lead.

Ti got on the board in the fourth when Ashley St. Andrews singled and scored on a double by Katie Karkoski.

The Sentinels made it 4-2 with a run in the sixth as St. Andrews singled to drive home Chelsea Budwick.

Those hits - two by St. Andrews and one by Karkoski - were the only Sentinel hits of the day.

Hoosick Falls added an insurance run in the final inning.

Karkoski and Best combined to pitch a five-hitter for Ti, but the Sentinels couldn't overcome their defensive lapses.

Ticonderoga ended the season with a 16-3 record.

Panther eliminated

Errors doomed Crown Point as it fell to Germantown, 6-1, in the Class D tournament.

The Panthers made four errors that led to five unearned runs.

Germantown grabbed a 3-0 lead in the first inning with the help of two Crown Point errors. It added another unearned run in the third to make it 4-0.

That was essentially the game as Germantown hurler Karissa Phillips held Crown Point at bay.

Trailing 5-0, Crown Point scored in the fifth inning when Ashley Morgan doubled, advanced to third on a hit by Heather Bemis and scored on a hit by Lindsay Brace.

Morgan and Brace each had two hits for the Panthers.

Chelsea Dushane and Brace combined to throw a seven hitter for the Panthers, but were undone by defensive miscues.

Crown Point finished the season with a 16-1 record.
