BINGHAMTON — Early errors proved fatal in Waverly’s 14-2 loss to Chenango Valley in STAC Central Division softball action here on a cold and windy Wednesday afternoon.

Chenango Valley scored 10 unearned runs on five Waverly errors, and led 12-0 after three innings.

Waverly, which had two hits — second-inning singles by sophomore Delaney Wheeler, and senior Olivia Robinson — through the first four innings, got on the scoreboard in the fifth inning on a lead-off double by junior Meghan Apgar, a one-out RBI triple by junior Makayla Esau, and an RBI groundout off the bat of junior Brinn Cooney to close the gap to 12-2.

Freshman Hannah Carpenter led off the top of the sixth inning with a double, but was stranded at second base.

Chenango Valley then closed out the game in the home half of the sixth via the 12-run “mercy rule” with a pair of runs on three straight hits.

Esau tripled, scored a run, and drove in a run, and Apgar doubled and scored a run to pace Waverly at the plate, while Carpenter rapped a double, Robinson and Wheeler each added singles, and Cooney had an RBI.

Junior Loralye Anthony was tagged with the loss, allowing 12 runs — only two earned — on eight hits and two walks in 2 2/3 innings.

Robinson retired the only batter she face in relief, and Cooney allowed two runs on four hits, while striking out four in 2 1/3 innings.

With the win, the Warriors avenge a 13-12 loss at Waverly earlier this season.

Waverly, now 5-4, returns to action Saturday against Johnson City and Pittsford-Sutherland at Johnson City.
