One hit, one run enough to earn Lady Indians Class B softball title

Class B finals

Peru 1, PHS 0

PLATTSBURGH -All the Peru Lady Indians softball team needed was one.

One chance. One walk. One hit. One run.

The Indians got that in the top on the sixth inning June 2, earning a win over the Lady Hornets to capture the Section VII/Class B title, 1-0.

Plattsburgh pitcher Kristin Fisher had held the Indians hitless and without a walk through the first five innings of the championship game, before issuing a walk to Breanna Martineau.

Martineau was then advanced to second and driven home one out later when Brianna Padron lopped a single into left field for the Indians' lone hit and run of the game.

The Hornets were unable to score any runs in the game despite getting five runners into scoring position but not getting any across the plate.

Dani Dayton earned the win on the mound for the Indians, allowing six hits and striking out six.

Megan Jubert had the only extra-base hit of the game, a double, for the Hornets.

Taylor McMahon collected two hits in the game, while Sam Malcolm, Cieara Duquette, and Karlie Neale each had singles.

Fisher struck out eight in seven innings of work for the Hornets.
