Spring Sports: A roundup of action from April 21


NEW CASTLE — Boys track

Malutic paces Mohawk

Ricky Malutic won four events to lift the Warriors to a 109-41 road win over Ellwood City.

Malutic won the 400, 800, 1600 relay and the 3200 relay for Mohawk.

Keaton Docchio (100, 110 hurdles) won two events for the Wolverines.

Shenango cruises

Devin Ross rolled up four wins to pace the Wildcats to a 120-26 home win over Union.

Ross claimed decisions in the 200, 400, 1600 relay and the 3200 relay.

James Thomas (110 hurdles, long jump, triple jump) won three events for the Scotties.

New Castle rolls

Mike Mazzanti garnered four wins to lead the Red Hurricane to a 110-40 home win over Ambridge.

Mazzanti topped the 800, the 1600, the 1600 relay and the 3200 relay.

Khalil Huddleston (100, 200, 400 relay) and Alex Shepherd (110 hurdles, 300 hurdles, 1600 relay) were triple winners.

Lancers lose

Robbie Kroner tallied a pair of victories, but it wasn’t enough as visiting Riverside rolled to the 117-17 triumph.

Kroner topped the 800 and the 1600 relay.


Beaver 17,

Shenango 7

The Bobcats recorded 21 hits in a Section 5-AA home win over the Wildcats.

The game was stopped after the sixth inning because of the mercy rule.

“It was just a combination of not putting (the pitches) where we wanted and if we did, they slapped it the other way against us,” Shenango coach Mike Othites said. “You thought it was last year’s state (runner-up) team.

“They just kept hitting. They hit everything we threw up there.”

The Wildcats (4-3, 5-6) recorded 11 hits, led by Hunter Waskin, Ryley Ferrari, Evan Kendall and Vince Turco with two hits apiece.

Tyler Booher (2-2) took the loss. Booher worked the first three innings, allowing seven hits and five runs — all earned — with a walk and two strikeouts.

The Wildcats plated a marker in each of the first two frames, two in the third, one in the fourth and two in the sixth.

The Bobcats (4-4, 4-5) scored in every inning. They scored three runs in the first, one each in the second and third innings, four in the fourth, one in the fifth and seven more in the sixth.

Beaver has outscored the opposition 47-17 during its current three-game winning streak.

“This one took me a little bit by surprise,” Othites said. “For whatever reason, this was not our day.

“Just like all wins, we’ll put it behind us. The guys weren’t happy with it; we can’t define our season by this.”
