Hudson Falls tops Gloversville, 19-2

MECO – It was a rough outing for the Gloversville Lady Huskies at the Meco Ball Park on Wednesday.

The Hudson Falls Tigers defeated the Huskies, 19-2.

“Overall we were struggling today, we have a couple injuries so girls are playing in positions they’re not familiar with. I don’t think today’s game is an accurate portrayal of our capability on the field,” Gloversville coach Stephanie Luce said. “We’re struggling with injuries,; we’ve played every single day this week so the girls are getting tired and overall it was a rough game.”

Gloversville was held scoreless in its first two innings before rallying in the third inning after Shawna Funk hit a single and Jenny Vickery slid into third.

Kaitlyn Pierce picked up two RBIs after her hit led to both Vickery and Funk crossing home-plate respectively, closing the gap to 4-2.

Hudson Falls (7-6 Foothills) was quick to respond, opening the fourth inning with back-to-back scores from Kate LaPan and Tanner Barton.

The Tigers had momentum on their side in the final three innings, shutting out the Huskies and tallying up 13 more runs en route to their seventh league victory of the season.

“Emily Washburn tried to power through and did the best she could on the mound, and a couple of us got some good hits and we scored some runs, but overall it was a rough game,” Luce said.

The loss leaves Gloversville’s record at 4-12 overall and 3-10 in the Foothills Council.

Gloversville is scheduled to travel to Johnstown today for a 7 p.m. contest.
