Lady Lynx Nip Eagles in 8



ELLSWORTH — Mistakes cost Ellsworth dearly on Thursday as the Mattanawcook Academy Lynx nipped the host Eagles 7-6 with a run in the top of the eighth inning.

Despite a four-hit, 13-strikeout pitching performance by righthander Tashia Daley, the Lynx came up with the game-winner when Brooke Hanscom singled and then scored on a passed ball with two outs.

Eight Ellsworth errors helped stake Mattanawcook to a 6-2 lead in the first five innings.

But the Eagles rallied to tie the game with a run in the sixth and three more in the seventh.

Ashley Smith had two doubles and two singles and Giulia Frugoni doubled and singled for the Eagles, who had nine hits against Mattanawcook righthander Tayla Trask, who finished with 12 strikeouts.
