Canton Continues Dominant Start Blanking SLC
Undefeated Canton Central continued to ride collaborative pitching and hitting efforts in a dominant start to the NAC Girls Softball season.
The Golden Bears blanked St. Lawrence Central 15-0 on Thursday as Emily Wentworth struck out six in in three innings and Hadley Alguire fanned seven batters in four innings of the combined three-hit shutout. In one other Central game Malone blanked Gouverneur 18-0.
Brooke Larrabee belted a triple and a homerun to lead the Bears' offense and Lexi Huiatt, Sydnee Francis, Emily Wentworth and Natalie Warner all stroked two singles. Rylee Daoust, Hannah Agans and Chantel McCarthy all singled for SLC. Agans also supplied a complete game on the mound.
"As a team we hit the ball very good. Brooke Larrabee and a great day at the plate and both pitchers had good command of the strike zone today," said Canton Coach Mike Wentworth.
Hadley Alguire, Cate DeCoteau and Hadleigh Thornton also hit safely for Canton.
Malone 18 - Gouverneur 0: Rileigh McCauley struck out 14 pitching the shutout and hammered two homeruns and a single at the plate for Malone. McKenzie Lane homered and doubled for the Huskies.
Elizabeth Riutta and Peyton Mussaw singled for Gouverneur and Raelin Burns struck out five on the mound.
