Cable-6 News Coverge
Danielle Bitts drove in both Valley Central runs – including a ball hit up the middle off the glove of Minisink Valley pitcher Cassie Duffy in the 10th inning – as the No. 1 Vikings (18-3) won a Section 9 Class AA semifinal.
Taylor Concklin entered the game as the international tiebreaker runner at second base to start the bottom of the 10th inning and was bunted over to third base. Minisink then intentionally walked Valley Central's Nos. 3 and 4 hitters to load the bases and get to Bitts.
Cassandra Kohler scattered six hits to earn the win for Valley Central, which will play Kingston in the Class AA championship game.
Duffy allowed eight hits – both runs were unearned – in the circle for Minisink Valley (15-6).
