HS ROUNDUP: Cutting beats head cold, then Falcons

Niagara Gazette —

Ailing Ally Cutting compounded herself a prescription for victory as Grand Island rallied to defeat Niagara-Wheatfield, 7-3, in Niagara Frontier League softball Tuesday afternoon.

Under the weather right up to the first pitch, Cutting yielded three Falcon runs, then drilled a two-run single in the third for a 4-3 lead. She added a two-run triple in the fifth and retired 14 of the last 16 Falcons, striking out eight, walking one, getting a booster shot from Jenna Neff’s five assists at third base and Jessica Amsdill’s game-ending grab in right.

Laura Crooks scored twice and made two consecutive highlight-reel catches for Wheatfield, one going back, the other sliding in. Grand Island evened its NFL record at 2-2, while N-W dropped to 3-1. – Doug Smith
