Spring Sports: A roundup of local action for April 22


NEW CASTLE — Mohawk 8,

Hopewell 6

Mohawk built a six-run lead through four innings and held on for a nonsection road win over Hopewell.

The Lady Warriors (8-2) led 8-2, but the Lady Vikings got back in it with four runs in the bottom of the sixth.

“It was a good win for us,” Mohawk coach Pam Beatty said. “Any win is a good win; it was a good way to finish a long week.”

Haley Sainato (1-0) picked up the win. Sainato went the distance, giving up three hits and six runs — none earned — with nine walks and four strikeouts.

“That’s the first time Haley pitched. I thought she did a nice job,” Beatty said. “The defense helped her out, too.”

Hopewell (0-10), which is a Class AAA school, had runners at the corners in the seventh, but Sainato got a groundout to end the game.

Lucia Fee recorded three hits for the Class AA Lady Warriors, while Lea Brown and Leah Woytek added two apiece. Woytek knocked in two runs as well.
