Posted 5/16/22It took a long time to complete one game and a really long time to complete a quest, but both were accomplished in a softball game at Springville on Friday. The quest was an elusive softball division title for the Cheektowaga Lady Warriors softball team, whose last division title was 26 years ago. The game was a continuation of a game that was stopped in the middle of the fifth by a violent rain storm two weeks ago.
Cheektowaga won the contest by an 11-7 score, thus clinching at least a tie for the division title that had eluded them for so long. Offensively, the team was led by Daviana Anthony, Aubrey Duval, and Ava Derenda who each went 3-5. Duval also hit a home run. Defensively, Ava Derenda finished the game by snatching a line drive and doubling off the runner on first.
Congratulations to the girls .
Posted 5/16/22The Lady Warrior softball team raised its record to an eye-popping 12-2 record with two games remaining on it’s regular season schedule by beating last year's champion, Lake Shore by a 15 -7 score.
This truly was a team effort as both the defense and offense played important parts of the win.
The Duval sisters literally performed a “sister act” on Lake Shore as they each appeared twice in the circle to pick up the win. The sisters kept the batters on their toes as they changed speed and location all the time and limited a potent Lake Shore offense.
Defensively, Daviana Anthony , made the play of the game when she knocked down a deflected hit off of her teammate, Oliviah Fallacaro. Got to her feet and threw back to
Oliviah at first base to make the force out.
Offensively, the team was led by Adriana Duval who went 3-3 and scored three runs. Gracie Amanti went 2-3 and scored twice, while Oliviah Fallacaro went 3-5, scored three times and connected for a double.
