HARBORCREEK — The Corry Junior girls all-stars broke a scoreless tie by scoring twice in the top of the sixth inning to defeat Iroquois 2-0 Saturday in loser's bracket action.
Corry bounced back from a 6-2 defeat against LeBoeuf and faces North East next on Tuesday at 6 p.m.
Corry was only able to scratch out one infield single and failed to get the ball out of the infield, and despite being out-hit 6-1, won behind the strong pitching of Shaina Hansen and great defensive support. Hansen and Johanna Ragen were locked up in a pitchers’ duel before Iroquois made an ill-fated decision to replace Ragen in the sixth inning.
Jessica Tombaugh walked the first batter she faced, Morgan Woodin, and after recording a strikeout walked Shay Lawrence. Brittany Zajac than laid down a sacrifice bunt and reached first on the fielder's choice, loading the bases for cleanup hitter Jaynee Corbett. Corbett hit a grounder to first and the throw to the plate was not in time to force out Woodin.
