Big rally knocks off softball squad

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Fort Ann Cardinals softball team used a four-run rally and a pair of runs in each of the game’s final two innings to defeat Whitehall in an early season Adirondack League showdown.
Trailing 7-5 after three innings, Fort Ann scored four runs in the fourth inning and to take a 9-7 lead and Cardinal pitcher Molly Bailey made sure the lead would hold up, shutting out the Railroaders the rest of the way.
Alli Clark led Fort Ann with three hits, including two for extra bases, and three other players recorded multiple hits for Fort Ann who improved to 2-0 on the young season.
First baseman Ariel Ayers led the Railroaders with a triple and single, and Olivia Short, Emily Harker and Jackie Raino all had a pair of singles.
Fort Ann set the tone early, scoring four runs in the first inning but Whitehall answered back, plating a pair of runs in the bottom half of the inning, and trailed 5-2 after two and a half innings.
In the third inning, Whitehall scored five runs to take a 7-5 lead, but Fort Ann immediately countered with the big fourth inning and never looked back.
With the loss Whitehall falls to 1-1. The Railroaders travel to Fort Edward on Monday, April 16.
