MOUNT UNION - The Trojans got a solid effort by Liza Feagley in non-league action Friday with Everett but it fell short as the Warriors outlasted Mount Union and took the contest 4-2.
Feagley seemed to be the only Mount Union player to catch on to Everett's hard throwing pitcher as she launched two balls beyond the fence, accounting for each of her team's runs.
"We really didn't hit like we usually do," Mount Union coach Matt Fiscus said. "No one besides (Liza) got on to her."
Feagley also held her own from the circle Friday, pitching all seven innings while striking out seven and only distributing two free passes. The defense was uncharacteristically faulty and committed four errors behind Feagley.
"We really didn't play well in the field and we made mistakes that we don't normally make," Fiscus said. "We just didn't have it today."
Kaitlyn Querry also had a hit for the Trojans.
Mount Union (13-3, 11-2) travels to Hollidaysburg Monday.
Susquenita 14, Greenwood 3 (5 innings)
MILLERSTOWN - Greenwood softball couldn't avoid the big inning Friday against Susquenita in the resumption of a suspended game due to inclement weather and the Wildcats took the loss 14-3 in five innings.
"The big innings are always a problem," Greenwood coach Troy Gantt said. "We need to find a way to take a 3-run inning and keep it from getting to a 9-run inning."
Jess Heichel started the game from the circle before the contest was delayed. Brooke Louden finished the game and Gantt said she threw well but Susquenita took advantages of the few mistakes she made.
The Wildcats were down 14-0 heading to the bottom half of the eighth when the bats came alive. The team plated three runs but it wasn't enough to overcome the team's six errors.
Greenwood (3-7) travels to Fannett-Metal Monday.
Selinsgrove 6, Midd-West 2
BEAVER SPRINGS - Midd-West's baseball squad was unable to take advantage of scoring opportunities Friday and Selinsgrove was. The Mustangs came out on the wrong end of a 6-2 score to the Heartland foe.
Colton Keister struck out five hitters in the loss and also went 2-for-4 at the plate but five free passes and four errors proved to be the difference.
"We made four mistakes," Midd-West coach Ron Flood said. "When they got people on they took advantage of them - they hit the ball when they had to."
Austin Hockenbrock and Colton Snook each had a hit and RBI in the loss.
"(Keister and Hockenbrock) are hitting the ball well," Flood said. "We had some opportunities - it was just one of those nights when we didn't hit when we had to and they did."
Midd-West (8-7, 4-7) hosts Montoursville Monday.
ALTOONA - Mifflin County sent two doubles squads to Altoona Friday to compete in the District 6 Class AAA doubles championships but neither team made it out of the first round. Quarterfinal hopefuls Cody Donaldson and Clay Morgan lost in straight sets as did Conner Saltzer and Matt DeBenedetto.
Donaldson and Morgan fell to Max Sheetz and Jordan Kirsch of Hollidaysburg 6-3 and 6-1. The Huskies duo was able to muster three games in the first set but the team ran out of steam and was bounced from championship contention.
Mifflin County's No. 1 and No. 2 players Saltzer and DeBenedetto joined forces and faced off against Altoona's Mustafa Ahmad and Chris Reighard whose home court advantage proved to be the difference. Saltzer and DeBenedetto played hard but fell 6-3 in the first set. The team scratched out four games in the second set but Ahmad and Reighard were too strong and took the set 6-4, ending Saltzer and DeBenedetto's season.
Mount Union 14, Everett 0 (5 innings). Sarah Gearhart took the win from the circle with nine strikeouts. Cheyenne Fye went 3-for-3 from the plate and Abby Varner slapped two hits, including a double, in the win. Mount Union (16-1) travels to Hollidaysburg Monday.
