The South Side Rams  were looking to put some breathing space between themselves and the Avonworth Antelopes for 2nd place in Class AA Section 1, and the only way they were going to make that happen was to beat the Lopes outright on its home turf, which they did 6-4 on Thursday.  In the early going, however, it looked like the Rams were in danger of falling into a tie for 2nd as the opportunistic Antelopes took advantage of 3 SSB errors to jump out to a 4-0 lead in the 3rd inning.  Elaina Tkaczenko reached base on an error.  A walk to Jennie Pollock by McKenna Smith moved...

It was the perfect night for a softball game. Clear, calm and cool -- Arguably the demeanor of the junior pitcher for Baldwin, Jaimie Schleicher. Although Peters Township did score a run in the 7th inning, the late rally wasn't enough as the Highlanders defeated the Indians 2-1 at Baldwin High School. Schleicher started the game perfect through 3 and two-thirds innings with 5 strikeouts. She also helped offensively in the bottom of the 3rd, hitting an RBI-single, allowing freshman Taylor Dadig to score after she singled and stole a base. Senior pitcher Kellyn Perich for the Indians stayed...

Heading into Friday’s action, there have been 12 games played in the section. Two-thirds were decided by two runs or less and five had been decided by one run. The close games certainly reflect the balance of the section. But they also reflect the strength of the section. This should tell you the strength of Section 1: It includes four teams – Moon, North Allegheny, Pine-Richland and Seneca Valley – that have...

Rachel Hankin and Rachel Albert hit back-to-back solo home runs in the 6th inning, lifting Bethel Park (5-3, 4-1) to a 2-1 win over Baldwin (5-1, 4-1) on Wednesday night at Baldwin High School.

Schleicher would retire the first eight Bethel Park batters, give up a single to Hankin in the 4th inning and then retire eight more batters in a row, before Hankin, the nine-hitter in the Blackhawks' lineup, would...
