IAC SOFTBALL: WAVERLY DROPS PAIR OF DECISIONS AT TESTA TOURNAMENT (24 PHOTOS) (2023-04-29)

Valley Sports Report
WAVERLY - Waverly dropped decisions to Elmira and Sutherland here on a cold and damp Saturday in non-league softball action as part of the Testa Tournament.

Elmira beat Waverly, 7-3 in the opening game of the day, then beat Sutherland, 7-4 to claim the team title. Sutherland blanked Waverly, 12-0, in a rain-shortened contest to cap the day's activities.

Elmira 7, Waverly 3

Elmira, playing as the home team, scored five runs in the bottom of the second inning on its way to a 7-3 win over Waverly in the opening game of the tournament.

The Lady Wolverines took the early lead with a run in the top of the first inning.

Sophomore Brinn Cooney worked a one-out walk, moved to second on a wild pitch, and third on a two-out single to right field by sophomore Megan Apgar, which was mishandled, allowing Cooney to score.

With runners on second and third, and two outs, 8th-grader Hannah Carpenter ripped a liner that was snared by the third baseman to end the inning.

Waverly junior hurler Olivia Robinson retired the Express in order in the first inning, but a couple of errors and four hits in the second inning game Elmira 5-1 lead.

The Lady Wolverines closed the gap with a run in the top of the third inning on an RBI single by senior Alyvia Daddona, but the Express answered in the home half of the frame to make it 6-2.

Waverly scored another run in the top of the fourth on an RBI groundout off the bat of sophomore Alayna Miller, but Elmira once again answered with a run in the bottom of the inning.

Senior Michaela Lauper singled and scored one run, and Daddona singled and drove in one run to pace Waverly’s four-hit attack, while Apgar and junior Lea VanAllen each added a single, and Cooney and Carpenter each scored one run.

Sutherland 8, Waverly 0
Sutherland scored four runs in the top of the first inning and cruised to an 8-0 rain-shortened three-inning game. (Schedule for five innings).

The Eagles added four more runs in the third inning to take an 8-0 advantage. They pushed four more across the inning in the top of the fourth when the umpires called the game, but those runs were stricken and the score reverted back to what it was after three innings.

Maddy Ward tossed a 1-hitter for Sutherland, striking out one and walking none.

Senior Alyvia Daddona had Waverly’s lone hit.

Waverly, now 5-6, returns to action Monday when it hosts Newfield.
