Arcadia Wins Sectional Title on Walkoff HR

Amanda Dow picked a perfect time to hit her first home run in her 4-year varsity softball career.

With the Section V Class A1 championship tied at 1 in the bottom of the 7th, Dow cranked a 3-run home run over the leftfield wall to send Arcadia to a 4-1 walkoff win over Sutherland.

Pitching ruled the afternoon. Both teams failed to score until the 6th inning as Becky Knorr for Arcadia and Nicole Carty for Sutherland threw gems. The two of them each threw complete games and tossed 9 strikeouts of their own.

Arcadia scored the game's opening run when Becky Knorr worked a bases loaded walk in the bottom of the 6th. Sutherland leveled when Carty scored on a fielder's choice in the top of the 7th. That set the stage for Dow's drama in the bottom of the frame.

Greece Arcadia will play Geneva at 2:00pm on Saturday at Brockport in the Class A state qualifier.
