Stone Bridge 3, Briar Woods 0
Broad Run 7, Briar Woods 6
The Skinny: Falcons report that they dropped a pair of games to local AAA rivals Stone Bridge and Broad Run in the Second Annual Battle of Ashburn Tournament Saturday at Stone Bridge. The Falcons (1-3) fell to the host Bulldogs 3-0 in the opening game, and a seventh-inning rally came up short in a 7-6 loss to Broad Run in the second game of the day.
In game one, Stone Bridge, a AAA state tournament quarterfinalist a year ago, jumped out to a quick 2-0 lead in the first behind two hits and a pair of Falcon errors. The score remained the same until the Bulldogs tacked on another unearned run in the fifth.
The Falcons collected six hits in the game but stranded six runners. Sophomore Danielle Brendes had a pair of doubles, while sophomore Kayla Brennan singled twice.
Sophomore Madison Goodman took the loss despite allowing no earned runs in three innings.
In the second game, the Falcons rallied for four runs in the bottom of the seventh but had the potential game-tying run thrown out at the plate to end the game.
Trailing 7-2 entering the final inning, Briar Woods got things started when junior Kacie Kondrotis singled and freshman Meghan Bradshaw reached on an error that allowed the runners to advance to second and third. Junior Jordan Counts sent a lined shot to left for the first out before Brendes ripped a double to score both Kondrotis and Bradshaw. After junior Casey Forbes walked, freshman Alexa Binckes battled to a 3-2 count before flying out to deep center.
Brennan followed with a double to plate Brendes and Forbes and pull the Falcons to within a run. Junior Lynn Brantley then singled to left, but Broad Run gunned down the tying run at the plate to end the game.
“That last play is on me,” said Falcon head coach Chris Starke. “I initially held our runner around third, saw the left fielder bobble the ball and took a chance by sending her. The left fielder made a quick recovery and threw a strike to the plate. That was a bad decision on my part and a great play by Broad Run.”
Broad Run, which advanced to last year’s AAA state semifinals, tallied single runs in the third and fourth innings and added three more runs in the sixth to build a 5-0 advantage.
The Falcons scored twice in the sixth on an RBI-groundout by Brantley and an RBI-single by junior Emilie Ball, but the Spartans countered with two decisive runs in the top of the seventh behind a lead-off walk, two singles and a wild pitch.
Briar Woods collected 10 hits against Broad Run, led by two each from Counts, Brendes and Brantley.
“I am proud of how our team battled back late in that second ball game,” said Starke. “We were putting the bat on the ball most of the day but just hitting it right at people. We started finding holes late in that second game, and we gave ourselves a chance at the end.”
GameChanger reports that Kamille Larrrabee was 4 for 4 in the win and that Madison Small was 3 for 4 in the win and Erika D’Argenio went 3 for 3 with two RBIs. McKall Miller was 2 for 4 with an RBI. Ellie Jessop had two RBIs.
Stone Bridge 14, Broad Run 1 (5)
The Skinny: GameChanger reports that Stone Bridge had 15 hits including 3-hit games by Emily Kenny and Niki Prince; and 2-hit games by Olivia Sappington and Kelly McDaniel. Prince finished with 5 RBIs. McDaniel went the distance for SB giving up one run on three hits with two strikeouts and no walks.
