  • LITTLE FALLS 11, HERKIMER 4
    The Little Falls Mounties took a significant step toward winning the Center State Conference’s Division II title Friday with their 11-4 win over reigning champion Herkimer.
    The win gives Little Falls (9-1, 8-1 CSC-II) a one-game lead over Herkimer (11-2, 7-2 CSC-II) entering its final league game Monday against West Canada Valley at Veterans Memorial Park. The teams had been tied entering Friday’s game and Herkimer was a 6-1 winner in Little Falls 11 days earlier. West Canada Valley haas won five games in a row since being shut out at home by Little Falls.
    Herkimer scored first at home Friday but Little Falls came back with two runs in the second inning and three in the third.
    Trailing 5-1, Herkimer rallied to score three runs in the fourth inning. Megan Ball singled with two outs, stole a base and scored on a hit by Shannon Cool. Bianca Aceto followed with a hit and an error on the play allowed a run to score while  Aceto advanced to third base. Maxine Grogan then doubled to dive in the Magicians’ fourth run.
    Amy Hart shut the Magicians out from there, striking out 10 batters along the way. Her bases-loaded double helped the Mounties break the game open in the top of the sixth inning. Hart later scored on a hut by Cheyenne Rivenburg.
    Little Falls tacked on two runs in the seventh inning. Gen Schoff drove in Katelyn Duesler with a two-out double, advanced on a wild pitch and scored on a hit by Hannah Becker.
    McKenzie Pine drove in Herkimer’s first run with a single in the first inning.
    Becker started the top of the second with a single, Hart tripled and Rivenburg singled for a 2-1 Little Falls lead.
    Hart had three hits for Little falls and Schoff doubled twice.
    Herkimer completes league play with a home game Monday against Frankfort-Schuyler. A Herkimer win paired with a Little Falls loss would make the teams co-champions.
