Annville-Cleona 6, Northern Lebanon 4

The Vikings and Dutchmen entered Friday as the two best teams in Section 4. With Northern Lebanon having taken the first matchup with a 6-0 win on April 12, Annville was looking to even the score when they visited Fredericksburg.

Annville scored two in the 1st and then added a pair of runs in the 3rd. Northern Lebanon responded with three runs in the 5th to make it a 4-3 score in favor of the Dutchmen. Annville would stretch the lead to 6-3 in the 6th. Northern Lebanon would respond with an additional run, but their rally would fall short as Annville held them in check.

Annville was led by Ashlyn Shaak, who went 3-4 with a run scored. Danika Setlock hit a two-run home run with a walk and a stolen base. Meda Pulaski also had 2 RBI. Pulaski also picked up the victory on the mound as she pitched all seven innings, giving up just one earned run and striking out twelve.

Northern Lebanon’s Olivia Shutter went 2-4 with 2 RBI. Addison Hollenbach knocked in an additional run for the Vikings. 

Annville-Cleona (8-2) will host Kutztown on Saturday. Northern Lebanon (7-2) is in tournament play on Saturday. The two teams will enter next week tied atop the Section 4 standings. 


Octorara 11, ELCO 1 [F/5]

A rainstorm in the Bottom 1st was partially to blame for pitching woes as Octorara put up eight runs. After things settled down, the game would eventually push to the 5th when Octorara finally scored two more runs to walk it off.

Offensively, ELCO was led by freshman Makayla Noll, who went 2-2 and drove in Karly Tice for their only run. 

Gabby Smith came into the game in relief and struck out ten batters. In doing so, the junior became ELCO’s All-Time Strikeout leader with 414 Ks. The total broke the old record of 407 that was held by Samantha Shimp (Class of 2011).

ELCO (8-2) will not have much time off before another major game as they are set to host Donegal on Saturday.


Solanco 18, Lebanon 3 [F/4]

The Cedars went on the road as they met the Golden Mules for the second time this week. In Tuesday’s game, Solanco shut out Lebanon. On Friday, Lebanon scored three runs before the home team was able to put the game out of reach in the 4th inning. 

Alexis Messner and Jenna Seyfert each had an RBI for Lebanon. Iris Krouse was 1-2 and also reached after getting hit by a pitch. 

Lebanon (0-11) will travel to Elizabethtown on Monday.

ELCO 1, Donegal 0 [F/8]

Gabby Smith followed Abby Hassler in relief as ELCO went toe-to-toe with Donegal in a game that saw Jordan Meyers strike out twenty Raiders. Hassler and Smith were up to the task, matching Meyers’ zeroes. Smith changed that with two outs in the eighth when she launched a home run to propel the Raiders to victory.  For Smith, it was her second hit of the day. Hassler also added a double in the game, while Karly Tice had her fourth hit in two games. Chloe Shirk reached on a walk, then stole a base as ELCO did everything they could to solve Meyers.

After the game, we reached out to Coach Allen Phillips of ELCO for a comment. He has this to say: “Today was an amazing testament to the resilience of this ELCO team.  Never down and never out!  They pick each other up and play such unselfish ball. Brilliant pitching from Hassler and Smith kept us battling all night. Their pitcher {Meyer} was amazing, but by the 6th we started to pick away at her and then Gabby was able to put one out!  We’ll see them again Saturday and I’m sure they’ll be coming for us”

ELCO is now 8-1 on the season and undefeated thus far in Section 3. Donegal is 10-1.

Annville-Cleona 8, Lancaster Catholic 2

Meda Pulaski held the Crusaders to two hits, struck out thirteen, and allowed only two runs (one earned) in a complete-game win. Morgan Long drove in three runs, while Kaci Potter was 1-1 with a run, an RBI, and two walks. Nia Hafey had two hits to lead the Lady Dutchmen. 

With this win, the Dutchmen continue to hold onto the #2 spot in the Section 4 race. Annville-Cleona (7-2) will have a chance to pull into a tie for first-place when they travel to Northern Lebanon on Friday.


Conestoga Valley 11, Lebanon 8

Sereniti Zidik was 2-4 with a home run, two runs, and two RBI at the place. The junior was also on the mound of the Cedars, punching out seven while giving up five earned runs. It was not quite enough, as the Lebanon Cedar Softball team fell 11-8. Seira Wolfe was 2-5 with a run scored, while Jenna Seyfert blasted a two-run home run. Emily Fickes-Seitz scored once and had three hits in four at-bats, and Kenidee Gilbert had a hit and 2 RBI. 

The Lebanon Cedars are still looking to win number one on the season. However, they are starting to put up runs consistently. They will look to continue the momentum when they travel to Solanco on Friday.

Annville-Cleona 11, Pequea Valley 5

Morgan Long  was only a home run shy of the cycle while driving in three runs, and Meda Pulaski and Danika Setlock each drove in two to pace the Lady Dutchmen offense. Pulaski punched out ten and allowed two earned runs over six innings, as Zoe Miller pitched a scoreless inning in relief, striking out one. Annville faces Octorara, Lancaster Catholic, and Northern Lebanon for the remainder of the week.


Northern Lebanon 24, Columbia 2

Brooke Beamesderfer’s three run home run and double in the first inning were part of a fifteen run opening frame as the Vikings pounded Columbia. Lynsie Mauser’s five RBI led the team, who got three hit performances from Mauser, Beamesderfer, Addison Kubica, Kiera Anspach, and Bailey McFeaters. Mauser and Anspach were the beneficiaries on the mound. The Vikings play Lancaster Mennonite twice the week before facing Annville Cleona.


Ephrata 18, Lebanon 8 [F/5]

In a major offensive explosion, the Cedars rattled off ten hits and scored eight runs in the losing effort.

Sereniti Zidik struck out five and gave up twelve earned runs but also went 1-3 with a walk and an RBI. Senior Ana Weaber knocked in three runs, while Kenidee Gilbert added an RBI. While the game ended in a mercy rule, the Cedars have to feel pretty good about how their team hitting has continued to develop.
