KEENE VALLEY - Murphy Farrell led off the first inning with a home run and started off Indian Lake/Long Lake to their win over Elizabethtown-Lewis in MVAC semifinal play on May 20.

Farrell also added a 2-run single later in the game.

The Orange got a 4-RBI game from Sierra Olbert and three more RBIs from Kaylie Miller.

Miller, who went the distance at the mound for the Orange, threw 12 strikeouts and only walked one.

Kristen Ashline, however, went 3-for-4, including a 2-run homer in the seventh inning against Miller.

Jenny Strain added a 2-run double for Indian Lake/Long Lake, and Jenn McGinn connected on a double for the Lions.

Elizabethtown-Lewis' Kylee Cassavaugh and Chelsea Provost both went 2-4.

Crown Point 4

Indian Lake/Long Lake 2

CROWN POINT - Lindsay Brace pitched a two-hitter with 14 strikeouts to lead Crown Point to a win and the MVAC Championship over the Orange on May 21.

Brace walked only two, but had to overcome four Panther errors, including two in the seventh. After Indian Lake/Long Lake scored an unearned run to make it 4-2, Brace struck out the next two batters, leaving a runner on second and the tying run at the plate.

"Brace had a good game. It was really hard for us to put our bats on the ball," Indian Lake/Long Lake Coach David Olbert said. "We stayed with them until the sixth inning - that was the difference in the game, that one inning."

Kaylie Miller allowed six hits while striking out six and walking none for the Orange.

Indian Lake/Long Lake scored first, getting both of their hits in the first inning. Emma Gray delivered a one-out single, advanced to second on a wild pitch and later scored on Miller's RBI base hit.
