MILLERSTOWN - Juniata stormed back with six runs in the sixth inning to defeat Greenwood 10-9 in a Tri-Valley League softball game Monday.
Victoria Cisney led the way for Juniata with four hits including a triple and three RBIs.
Six Indians and four Wildcats had multiple hits in an offensive display.
On top of her 5 2/3 innings in the circle, Brooke Louden had two hits and two RBIs for Greenwood, but did suffer the loss in what was a hard-luck sixth inning for her.
"We dug ourselves a hole with an error in the sixth," Greenwood coach Troy Gantt said. "Our girls didn't quit, we got two (in the seventh) and had the tying run on second, we just couldn't push across the third run across."
Juniata also took the junior varsity game, 10-5.
Greenwood will travel to Upper Dauphin on Wednesday while Juniata will host East Juniata the same day.
Juniata 7, Greenwood 3
MIFFLINTOWN - Juniata freshman Korey Martin threw a complete game and struck out nine Greenwood batters to lift Juniata to a 7-3 Tri-Valley League win over Greenwood Monday afternoon.
Juniata coach Nick Beward called Martin's effort "definitely the highlight of the night"
Ty Treaster and Dahkota Switzer each knocked in two runs as the Indians only could muster three hits, but benefited from four Greenwood errors.
"Offensively, it was a struggle for us," Beward said. "We really had trouble seeing the sidearmer and staying back."
Greenwood starter Mitch Taylor struck out 10 Indians and also matched Martin by throwing a complete game.
"Errors killed us," Greenwood coach Mark Sherman said. "We gave up one earned run the whole game. The pitchers threw well. Mitch Taylor pitched a great game."
Juniata will be back in action Wednesday when it travels to rival East Juniata; the Wildcats will host Upper Dauphin the same day.
Mifflin County 5,
LEWISTOWN - Mifflin County rebounded from a bad run of tennis matches Monday, stringing together five straight-set wins in a 5-0 shutout of Northern.
"We lost three in a row so we needed a match where we played pretty well," Mifflin County coach Glenn Kyle said. "We did today."
The Huskies improve to 5-3 both overall and in Mid-Penn play.
Juniata 5, Huntingdon 2
MIFFLINTOWN - Juniata swept Huntingdon in singles competition to beat the Bearcats 5-2 Monday in boys tennis action.
Luis Pacheco was the most dominant of the Juniata players, dropping Matt Scialabba 6-0, 6-2 in straight sets.
Huntingdon's sweep of doubles play was meaningless as the Indians had already wrapped up the victory.
Juniata will be back in action Monday when it hosts Carson Long.
