Bombers lose a heartbreaker, end season
TICONDEROGA — In an exciting back-and-forth game, Ticonderoga came out with the win over Lake Placid in the Section VII Class C semifinals.
Owen Stonitsch had a well-rounded game, with two hits, including a ground-rule double with a two-run home run in the bottom of the sixth.
“After getting up quickly with two in the bottom of the first, Lake Placid tied it in the top of the third,” Sentinels coach Dan Dorsett said.
Ticonderoga then scored four over the next two innings, taking a four-run lead, but again losing it in the fifth when the Blue Bombers scored four.
“After Foster Wood hit an RBI double in the top of the seventh with no outs, Connor Yaw came in and got the eventual save, getting a strikeout with the bases loaded to win it,” Dorsett said.
Dorsett also recognized Nate Trudeau and Nathan LaCourse for having great games as well.
For Lake Placid, Matt Brandes had three hits with two doubles, and Foster Wood notched two hits with one double. PJ Colby also secured two hits for the Blue Bombers.
“Matt Brandes was excellent all day on offense and on defense. He made some great plays,” Dorsett said.
