Disappointing week for MCS and RCS baseball teams

in

MCS baseball
Margaretville’s baseball team saw its slim chances for a Delaware League Upper Division title nearly disappear when they fell to Gilboa, 7-3, on the road last week. The loss was the Blue Devils second Delaware League defeat, one more than Windham, who owns the tiebreaker should the two teams finish in a tie.
Margaretville got on the board early, scoring a single run in the top of the first on Cooper Reither’s double, but squandered an opportunity for a big inning by leaving the bases loaded.


Tough week for RCS softball club; MCS softball washed out this week

in

It was a frustrating week of ‘could have beens’ for the Roxbury girls’ softball team last week. The Rockets carried a one-run lead into the final inning in Gilboa, but the undefeated Wildcats eked out two scores to squeak past their guests in walk-off style, 12-11.
A rare triple play squelched a big Rocket comeback rally in the opening round of the Milford Tournament with Roxbury falling 12-7 to Laurens. Then, with Roxbury in front 4-1, and needing only three more outs to make a complete game, rain washed out a possible win in consolation play later in the day.


MCS baseball team wins twice

With one out in the seventh inning, and two strikes on Danny Conroy, the Margaretville baseball team was desperate for bat to meet ball Monday afternoon. The Blue Devils trailed 1-0. Kyle Short led off third base representing the tying run, knowing that if Conroy couldn’t connect with the ball, he might very well come out on the short side of one of the best baseball outings of his life. But, Conroy lined a single to center, field tying the score, and breathing new life into the Blue Devils.


Fish beat work any day!

Jack Macdowalt of Hancock was out on the reservoir on Friday morning and caught several fish. He said that the fishing was so good he hated to have to go to work that day. He obviously decided in favor of fishing and against work, as he returned with a beautiful nine-pounder that he’d caught while fishing with Kastmasters! — Photo by Al’s Sport Store

RCS softball club splits two this week

It’s a season of transition in Roxbury with a lot of new faces, and veteran softball coach Jane Ware is still figuring out what she does and does not have. One thing Ware has learned is that her girls can hit the softball. Roxbury banged out double digit batting outputs, 23 hits in all, several of the extra base variety, as her Rockets edged Stamford last Wednesday, 16-13, before falling to Gilboa, 14-7 on Thursday.
