Late rally lifts Ephrata
The Ephrata girls softball team used a late rally to overcome host Exeter and claim a win in their season debut Saturday morning in Berks County.
With the score tied at 2-2 in the top of the seventh, the Lady Mounts responded for four unanswered runs in the final frame which led to an eventual 6-2 victory over the Eagles.
Ephrata collected eight hits for the game, including four in their seventh-inning rally. Catcher Kirsten Kauffman delivered the big blow with a two-run game winning double.
Pitcher Jenna Yarger also had a fine day at the plate for Ephrata, going a perfect 3-for-3 on the day.
On the mound, Yarger limited Exeter to just two runs on two hits while striking out four batters on the day.
Ephrata led 2-0 with single runs in the top of the third and fourth innings. However, Exeter tied it in the bottom of the fourth on a two-run single off the bat of Emily Olsen.
Exeter pitcher Parker Fizz took the loss.
Ephrata was slated to begin the season Friday at home vs. Wilson but that game was postponed due to an unplayable field. No make-up date was announced.
Ephrata also was scheduled to be in action Tuesday afternoon but that game was postponed until Wednesday afternoon at Highland Elementary, beginning at 4 p.m.
As for Cocalico, the Lady Eagles opened their season Friday afternoon at Lancaster Mennonite where they dropped a 6-5 decision to the host Blazers.
LMH broke a 5-5 tie with a run in the bottom of the seventh to claim the victory.
Cocalico pitcher Sara Young did whiff 10 batters in her 2013 debut. But the Blazers did coax seven walks and seven hits off the Lady Eagle hurler.
The Lady Eagles were scheduled to host Pequea Valley in their home opener Tuesday. However, that game was postponed until April 2 due to inclement weather.
