Local roundup: Tyler Wetzler helps Hughesville baseball defeat Warrior Run

Tyler Wetzel roped two hits, including a double, and drove in four runs as Hughesville turned a two-run deficit into a 14-3, five-inning win against Warrior Run. The Spartans (2-0) scored 14 runs between the second and fourth innings to take control with Angelo Ferrigno hitting an RBI triple. Dylan Farnsworth, Trent Knarr and Logan Kiess combined on a five-hitter. Mason Sheesley went 2 for 3 for Warrior Run.

Lewisburg scored four seventh-inning runs to break a tie at Shikellamy and defeat the defending HAC-I champions, 7-3. Max Mitchell went 3 for 4 with a triple, double and two runs. The Green Dragons (1-0) produced five extra-base hits and Forrest Zelechoski doubled, while going 2 for 4. Michael Casale ripped a double and drove in three runs. Zelechoski and Kaiden Wagner combined on a five-hitter with Wagner threw 1 1/3 hitless innings in relief to earn the win.

Eight of South Williamsport’s nine starters collected hits, but six errors doomed the Mounties as South lost its first game in Myrtle Beach, 10-8 against West Virginia state title contender Kaneland. The Mounties took a 4-0 first-inning lead but Kaneland answered with seven in the second and took the lead for good. Olivia Beck continued her strong start to the season and went 3 for 3 with a double and two RBIs. Alizabeth Schuler and Gianna Goodman each had hits and Sage Lorson ripped a triple. The Mounties (2-1) play again tomorrow morning.

• Lauren Mook, Sara Stroup and Tori Barto all had hits for Hughesville in an 11-0 loss at Central Columbia. Mea Consentino had 11 strikeouts for Central, a team which reached last year’s Class AAA state semifinals.

Kayla Fowler enjoyed an outstanding high school softball debut for Sullivan County, going 3 for 3 with a double in her team’s 15-5 loss at Northwest. Kaelyn Wettlaufer was 1 for 2 and both drove in and scored a run.

• In boys tennis, Montoursville’s Tyler Gilbert won an exciting three-set match at No. 2 singles, downing Central Columbia’s Bryce Hazzard, 7-6 (7-5), 1-6, 6-3, but Central won the overall team match, 4-1.

Jersey Shore’s Jackson Stemler won a straight sets match at No. 1 singles, 6-0, 6-0, but Wellsboro took the other four matches and defeated the Bulldogs, 4-1. Owen Richardson won a hard-fought three-set match for Wellsboro at No. 2 singles.

Central Mountain blanked Selinsgrove, 5-0, to move to 5-1 on the season. David Lindsay, Asher Talbot and Nate Brinker all earned 6-0, 6-0 wins at Nos. 1-3 singles, respectively.

Jackson Walker and Leisher Gugino picked up a 6-1, 6-0 win at No. 1 doubles, as did Jackson Proctor and Nick Piergallini at No. 2 doubles.

• Senior Erika Boyer led the Lycoming College women’s lacrosse team with a goal and an assist, but it fell to Misericordia University, 18-5, in its MAC Freedom opener.

Boyer added two groundballs and a caused turnover while four others scored in the game for Lycoming (4-5 overall, 0-1 MAC Freedom), who saw an end to a three-game winning streak with the loss to the Cougars (5-4 overall, 1-0 MAC Freedom).

Junior Tess Arnold scored to tie the game at one five minutes in and Boyer’s goal came 58 seconds into the second before senior Emma Lehr scored to make it 4-3 three minutes in.

Caroline Miller’s shorthanded goal with 39 seconds remaining — set up by a feed from Laurel McHale and a critical draw control from Ella Payer — gave Bucknell a dramatic 15-14 victory over Patriot League rival Colgate.

The Bison won their second straight Patriot League home game to improve to 5-5 overall and 2-1 in conference play. The thrilling victory also featured a record-setting night from rookie attacker Allie Boyce, who equaled the Bucknell freshman scoring record with seven goals.

Hall of Famer Sue Gray holds the overall team record with 10 goals against Northeastern as a senior in 1984. Seven goals is the next-highest tally in the books, and Boyce became the seventh Bison to hit that mark. The only other Bucknell freshman to record seven goals in a game was Anne Kennedy against Dickinson in 1979.

Despite a fourth quarter surge, Lock Haven University fell to No. 22 Seton Hill, 14-13, in PSAC Western matchup.

Lock Haven and Seton Hill traded three straight goals each in the opening minutes of the game before Seton Hill pulled ahead to lead 5-3 at the end of the first and 10-5 by half-time. Lock Haven matched Seton Hill’s three goals in the third quarter and Lock Haven trailed 13-8 heading into the final fifteen minutes of play.

Lauren Girardi kept Lock Haven in contention for the whole 60 minutes, generating 16 saves in the effort. On the opposite side of the ball, Josey Shaffer’s stick was lightning, and she was six for six in her efforts to find the back of the net.

• With 1:23 remaining, junior Rory Hines found the back of the net for his fourth goal to bring the Lycoming College men’s lacrosse team within a goal as he led the offense with four goals and a groundball in their first MAC Freedom matchup of the season, falling to Misericordia University, 14-13.

Freshman goalkeeper Ben Franco made 25 saves, the fourth-most in program history, in a with an additional five groundballs and a caused turnover in a standout performance in goal for the Warriors (4-6 overall, 0-1 MAC Freedom).

Senior Owen Zimmerman notched his sixth hat trick of the season, collecting two groundballs and a caused turnover. Seniors Michael Scarponi, Dominick Massaro and Markus Sidwell, junior Joe Corozzo, sophomore Matt Daley and freshman Joey Hoover all found the back of the net.

• Bucknell senior Jason Lohwater was named the Patriot League Men’s Golfer of the Week after a strong performance at the Battle at Rum Pointe over the weekend.

The Bison have played in three spring tournaments and claimed the Patriot League weekly award following each of them. Blake Wisdom was cited after the Veterans Intercollegiate in early February, and now Lohwater has been honored for the second time this season. A third Bison, Jackson Bussell, also earned the award back in the fall after winning the Howard Bison Invitational.

Lohwater was a standout in challenging weather conditions at the Rum Pointe Seaside Links in Maryland. He birdied his final three holes on the way to a 3-under-par 69 in the first round, and then he followed it up with an even-par 72 in round two. His 3-under total of 141 for 36 holes put him in a tie for third place, just one shot behind Rhode Island’s Jordan Brajcich and Cornell’s Samuel King. Rhode Island’s Bryson Richards also finished at 3-under, as only five of the 120 players in the field broke par.
