Lady Tigers claim 1st sectional title

Medina Journal-Register — CANANDAIGUA - Making school history, No. 3 seed Lyndonville nipped top seed Romulus 6-5 here Thursday in the Section V Class D-1 championship game, the Lady Tigers first ever sectional title.

Coming from behind twice, Lyndonville pulled even at 4-4 in the top of the sixth inning on a two-out, two-run single by winning pitcher Maddy Boyle. Singles by Madison Gardepe and Rebekah Hoffee set up the opportunity.

Keeping the momentum, the Lady Tigers then took the lead for good in the top of the seventh on a two-run double by Gardepe. Singles by Jenna Castricone and Caitlyn Albone set up the threat.

Romulus did rally for a run in the bottom of the seventh but left the potential runner stranded at third base as Boyle got the final two outs herself on a pop up and a ground out.

“I can’t be more proud of these girls,” said first year Lyndonville coach Joe Moore. “We struggled a bit early in the season but these last three games they have really put it together. They’ve played up to their capabilities.”

Gardepe finished with a total of three hits as Hoffee, Castricone, Boyle and Katie Marek each had two and Cheyenne Button and Albone one each.

In the circle, Boyle scattered five hits and struck out five.

Romulus did grab a quick 1-0 lead in the first inning on a pair of two out hits but Lyndonville answered back with a pair of runs in the third on a wild pitch and a sacrifice fly by Boyle. Lead-off hits by Marek and Hoffee ignited that rally.

Romulus regained a 4-2 lead by tallying three times in the bottom of the fifth on an error and a two-run single by Taylor Crowe.

However, Lyndonville again came battling back to quickly even the score at 4-4 in the top of the sixth on Boyle’s two-run single.
