SAYRE — Sayre kept the game scoreless for three innings, and was within striking distance until Northeast Bradford plated 14 runs in the sixth inning on its way to a 19-1 six-inning win here Monday afternoon in NTL Small School  Division softball action.

After junior Raegan Parrish retired NEB in order in the top of the first inning, sophomore Olivia Thompson led off the home half of the inning with  single — Sayre’s only hit of the game — and senior Meghan Flynn worked a walk, but Kelsea Moore retired the next three batters to escape the threat unscathed.

Parrish retired the first six batters she faced, but NEB opened the third inning with a double by Hannah Berger, and a single by Alexis Corter to put runners on first and third.

Parrish struck out the next two batters, and freshman Zoe Ward threw out Clark at home play after a slow grounder to end the inning.

After Moore worked around walks to Thompson and junior Abbie McGaughey in the bottom of the third inning, Berger opened the scoring with a solo home run over the center-field fence with one out in the top of the fourth inning.

The Panthers added three unearned runs with two outs to take a 4-0 lead.

NEB tacked on a run in the fifth inning to take a 5-0 lead, then sent 19 batters to the plate in the sixth inning, rapping out 10 hits in a 14-run rally that stretched the lead to 19-0.

The Redskins turned a pair of errors into a run in the bottom of the sixth to avoid the shutout.

Orissa Gardner had three hits, including a double, one run scored, and three RBI, and Kiarra DeLancey tripled and singled, scored two runs, and had four RBI to pace NEB’s 17-hit attack.

Sayre, now 3-12, returns to action Tuesday at Towanda.
