Softball splits

T he Whitehall Softball team split its games last week, pounding Salem and losing a close contest to Hadley Luzerne.

On Friday, Whitehall’s offense was stifled by the pitching of Hadley-Luzerne’s Sara Gangaware who struck out 14 in a no hitter.

The Railroaders were able to work four walks in the second inning to take a 2-0 lead.

That lead appeared it may be enough as Brittney Putorti shut down Hadley for the first five innings. However, Hadley was able to scratch out a run in the sixth and scored two more in the bottom of the seventh to win a hard fought contest.

On Monday, Whitehall defeated Salem, 11-1, behind another strong pitching performance by Putorti.

Putorti held Salem to a single run and allowed only three hits in a masterful complete game.

The only blemish was a fourth inning homerun by Salem’s Kate McKeighan.

The Railroaders jumped out to a 1-0 lead after one inning and added another 3 runs in the second to take control of the game. They added four runs in the fifth and another three in the sixth.

Victoria Christian led the way offensively for Whitehall with three doubles.

With the win Whitehall improved to 3-2 and remains in contention for a postseason berth.
