Coddington/The Reporter DEPOSIT ­— The Deposit softball team continued its supremacy in the Midstate Athletic Conference with a 3-0 victory over visiting Bainbridge-Guilford in the league championship game on Wednesday.

The Lumberjacks got off to a good start. With two outs in the first inning, Bryn Martin singled, stole second, and scored on a Kyra Martin single. Aubrin Smith walked and Makenzie singled, but Kyra was out trying to score.

They added their second run in the second, when B-G pitcher Kori Thornton issued three walks and Bryn Martin singled again. The 2-0 lead held until the fifth frame. Erin Ballard reached on an error, and was out on a fielder’s choice on a ball hit by Bryn Martin. After the second out, Smith singled Martin home.

Stiles struck out 10 Bobcat batters, hit one and walked one. She allowed three hits, a double by Bree Barber in the second inning and was out trying to reach third on a perfect throw by catcher Bryn Martin after a wild pitch; a double by Kassidy Davy in the fourth when the bases got loaded on a walk and an error; and a single by Jill Cannistra in the fifth.

T.W. Coddington/The Reporter Deposit Head Coach Dan Briggs commented, “We had some great at bats throughout the game, seeing a lot of pitches and working a walk or getting the ball in play. It was truly a team effort to get this win. Our defense was great, Makenzie was really good in the circle again today, and our offense, as usual, got the job done to work for the three runs we scored.”


HEADED FOUL — Bainbridge-Guilford’s Megan Palmatier swings at the ball, which will go foul during Wednesday’s MAC championship. She later hit a fly ball which was caught.
