BETHLEHEM — The varsity softball team is undefeated.
On Wednesday, July 22, the girls defeated a squad comprised of softballers from around Albany County by a score of 4-2 in what is likely the only game the Bethlehem varsity team will play together this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The game was tied at two in the bottom of the fifth when Sohalia Tiu hit the game winning RBI single.
Kyliann Moon pitched four innings for Bethlehem, giving up five hits and one run while striking out seven and walking one. Anna Cleary relieved and gave up one run on three hits while striking out even.
Charolotte Higgs went 2 for 3 with an RBI to lead Bethlehem at the plate. Grace DiBacco, Moon, Kiara Seavey, Emily Forand and Jane Reagan added hits.
Melody Kappell was in the circle for Albany County seniors, allowing two hits and one run over four innings while striking out five. Emily Towle threw three innings giving up three runs on six hits.
Kayla Jones went 3-for-3 at the plate to lead New York Albany County Seniors.
“It was a breath of fresh air to see these ladies back on the field playing and having fun and that was the goal today — to give the seniors an opportunity to play the game together and get the community together to honor those seniors,” said Bethlehem Softball League President Mark Ciafardo.
