Lady Rangers Bow Out of Post-Season, Lose to Otter Valley 10-2

June 6, 2013

OTTER VALLEY-The curtain closed on the Lake Region Rangers’ softball season Wednesday, as the girls in blue fell to Otter Valley 10-2.
“It’s not like they (Otter Valley) knocked the cover off of the ball. They 10 hits, but 3 were bunts singles, and 3 more were squirrely little squib hits.
“But their hits were timely, and when you walk 8 and make a few errors, there was always someone on base when they did get a hit. We had two or three of the hardest hit balls all day, but right at someone. Their shortstop and catcher were outstanding defensively,” said LR coach Matt Tinker.

North Country Falls Short Against South Burlington

June 5, 2013

SOUTH BURLINGTON–How important is one run?
Pretty darn important if you ask North Country coach Brian Bonvechio.
With nobody out and the Falcons trailing 2-0 in the top of the third of their play-down game with South Burlington, Jared Hussey crossed home plate, but the umpires ruled that he did not touch the dish, and was thusly called out.
North Country's next batter Tyler Sanville would hit into an inning-ending double-play, killing off the Falcons’ momentum.
