BUCKSPORT — The GSA Eagles took a 2-0 first inning lead but managed just three hits the rest of the way as the Golden Bucks came from behind for a 5-2 win on Thursday.

A leadoff single by Stevie Theoharidis got things started for GSA in the first.

Amber Gray followed with a bunt that was misplayed by the Golden Bucks, allowing Theoharidis to score and Gray to advance all the way to third.

Anna Clapp then bunted with Gray breaking for the plate and the toss to Bucksport catcher Mindy Pye was too late to keep the second run from scoring.

The Golden Bucks left the bases loaded in the bottom of the inning as GSA righthander Lydia Clapp pitched out of the jam with back-to-back strikeouts.

But Bucksport got a run in the second on a walk to Abby Yeo, a single by Caitie Denning and an RBI groundout by Pye.

The Golden Bucks took the lead for good with three runs in the third on a walk, a hit batter, an RBI single by Shelby Redman, a wild pitch and a sacrifice fly by Yeo.

Bucksport again left the bases loaded in the fourth, but added an insurance run in the sixth when Pye singled, went to third on a throwing error and scored on a wild pitch.

Bucksport righthander Abby Yeo went the distance in the pitcher’s circle, giving up four hits.

Clapp also pitched a complete game for the Eagles, allowing six hits.
