A-C routs Catholic, 15-0, in 3 innings

The Annville-Cleona softball team wasted little time in staying unbeaten on Wednesday, routing Lebanon Catholic, 15-0 in three innings in a Section Four matchup at Annville-Cleona High School.

Now 3-0 overall and 2-0 in Section Four, A-C jumped on the Beavers for six runs in the first, then exploded for eight more in the second on the way to ending the contest after three innings via the 15-run mercy rule.

Michaela Singer doubled to lead an eight-hit A-C attack and Hannah Fischer tossed three innings of shutout ball to earn the win on the mound.

NORTHERN LEBANON 7, COCALICO 2 >> In Denver, the Vikings picked up their first victory of the season with the help of an offensive outburst in the late innings and the combined six-hit pitching of Jess Kreiser and Nicole Ditzler.

Northern Lebanon bunched all seven of its runs in the fourth, fifth and sixth innings with the help of seven Cocalico errors to overcome an early 1-0 deficit. Kreiser and Ditzler combined on a six-hitter as the Vikes improved to 1-2 overall and 1-1 in Section Three.

WARWICK 3, CEDAR CREST 0 >> In South Lebanon, the Falcons remained scoreless in the early going, suffering their second shutout loss of the week.

Crest (0-2, 0-2 Section One) managed just two hits and never recovered from the two runs the Warriors scratched out against Maddie Gable in the first. Gable pitched well in defeat, allowing just five hits and striking out six.

EPHRATA 21, LEBANON 11 (6 INNINGS) >> At Stoevers Dam Park, the Cedars dropped a slugfest and fell to 1-2 in the early going.

Lebanon actually trailed 14-0 heading into the bottom of the fifth, before scoring seven times to keep the game alive another inning.

Mariah Rodriguez doubled to account for Lebanon's lone extra-base hit.

LAMPETER-STRASBURG 12, ELCO 0 (5 INNINGS)>> In Myerstown, mighty L-S put a hurting on the Raiders with a 13-hit attack.

Elco (1-1,1-1 Section Three) was guilty of more errors (three) than it had hits (two) in the loss. Claire Shaak doubled to account for half of the Raiders hits.
