Spring Sports: A roundup of action for April 15

NEW CASTLE — A big inning propelled the Ellwood City Lincoln softball team to a WPIAL Section 1-AAA home victory over New Castle.

Five runs in the fourth inning from a combination of singles, hit batters and errors allowed the Lady Wolverines to erase a three-run deficit and earn a 6-3 victory.

 Theyenne Annarumo had the big hit of the inning with a two-RBI single.  

“It took us awhile to get started hitting the ball. We had a couple of opportunities to take advantage of putting runners on,” Ellwood coach Gary Rozanski said. “We put the ball in play and got the victory.”

Kara Sainato (4-2) picked up the victory with seven innings of work, scattering nine hits and allowing three runs with six strikeouts.

“She’s our senior and a four-year starter,” Rozanski said. “She pitched well enough for the win.”

The Lady Wolverines (4-1 section, 4-2 overall) ended the first half with a solid record in section play and will look to continue the trend in the second half.  

“It’s big. We’re 4-1 halfway through. Any section game, it’s big. It’s very important to get the win. To be 4-1, it’s nice.”

After starting out with early 3-0 lead, the fourth was the Lady ’Canes downfall.

“Unfortunately, a few of them were unearned runs. We had a couple of errors. We were up 3-0 in the fourth, but the errors hurt us,” New Castle coach Leah Ann Williams said. “A couple of their batters got hit by pitch.

“Our freshman Carley Aven, she pitched 3 1/2 and only gave up three hits. (Alyea) Cioffi came in and pitched pretty well and closed it down. Everything was good; three runs will usually win you a game.”

Dana Perrotta had a double and drove in two runs in the fourth for the Lady ‘Canes (2-3, 3-5).

“I was pretty pleased with the effort, we just had to shuffle people around because we had a few injuries this week,” Williams said. “It was disappointing, because it’s a game I thought we could win. We just have to regroup and do better in this second half of the section.”
