Railroaders bounced in first round

Whitehall’s season came to end last Tuesday as the Railroaders were upended by Hoosic Valley in the first round of the Class C, Section II tournament.

The Indians, who compiled a 19-2 record and were co-Wasaren League champions, held Whitehall scoreless through the final six innings as they advanced to the quarterfinals with an 11-2 victory.

Jared Morello limited the Railroaders to two runs on three hits and had four singles in the game.

Whitehall actually got off to a great start, jumping out to a 2-0 lead off of Julian Barber’s two-run homerun in the first inning.

Dillon Griffin, pitching in his final varsity game, shut Hoosic Valley down through the first two innings, but the Indians scored a pair of runs in the third inning and three more in the fourth inning. They blew the game open with a six-run sixth inning.

Whitehall finishes the season with a 10-9 mark, tied for fourth best in the Adirondack League.
