Softball

Sentinels fall

Ticonderoga was eliminated from the New York State Public High School Athletic Association Class C softball tournament by Greenwich in regional final action June 6.

The Witches reached the state Final Four with a 6-1 victory.

The game was tied, 1-1, though four innings. Greenwich took a 2-1 advantage in the fifth frame and iced the contest with a four-run rally in the sixth inning.

Trailing 1-0, Ticonderoga scored to knot the tilt in the fourth when Andrea Rich doubled and Kate Palandrani singled to put runners on the corners. Rich then scored on an error.

That was all Greenwich pitcher Rachel Albrecht would allow. Ticonderoga didn’t get a runner past first base the remainder of the game.

Greenwich scored the go-ahead run in the fifth on a single and a pair of ground outs, then put the game away in the sixth with four singles and a Ti error.

Palandrani had three hits to lead Ticonderoga. Kylie Austin had two hits for the locals.
