SWAN LAKE — July 2, 2010 — The Center for Discovery Diamonds beat Holiday Mountain, 17-4, on Tuesday night in a Sullivan County Women’s Softball League “B” Division game at the Max Eronimous Swan Lake Firefighters’ Field.
Holiday Mountain had a strong top of the first inning. The first three batters recorded singles, which loaded the bases for Sabrina Castro. A single by Castro enabled teammates Rebekah Wilcox and Jen Eisenbach to score and give Holiday Mountain a 2-0 lead.
Center For Discovery was unable to answer in the bottom of the first as the first three batters were retired in order.
Diamonds’ pitcher Joan Krieger tossed a 1-2-3 top of the second to keep it a 2-0 game.
The Diamonds’ offense was ready to strike in the bottom of the second. Runs by Rene Green, Candice Sheerer and Teri Lewis gave the Diamonds a 3-2 lead. And the Diamonds would maintain the lead for the remainder of the game.
Center For Discovery scored four runs in the bottom of the third to extend its advantage to 7-2.
Holiday Mountain’s Sara Smith led off the top of the fourth with a double. She then scored when Mardette Wilcox singled.
An RBI single by Katie Fenshaw later in the inning allowed Holiday Mountain to close its deficit to three runs at 7-4.
But the Diamonds opened up a 14-4 lead when they scored seven runs in the bottom of the fifth.
Center For Discovery scored the final three runs of the game in the bottom of the sixth.
Green led the Diamonds’ offense by hitting a home run, a double and a single.
“It was a pretty good game,” Sheerer said. “We are 6 and 1 and have won every game in our division, and that is awesome.”
