A pair of big early inning scoring bursts powered top seeded Lyndonville to a 17-0 victory over visiting No. 8 Byron-Bergen this afternoon in the quarterfinal round of the Section V Class C2 softball playoffs.

Lyndonville broke the game open early by erupting for seven runs in the second inning on a two-run double by Ella Lewis, two-run singles by Brooke Robinson and Gracie Johnson and an RBI sacrifice fly by Lorelei Dillenbeck.

The Lady Tigers then put a firm lock on the run rule victory by exploding for 10 runs in the third inning. A three-run double by Lorelei Dillenbeck highlighted that uprising which also included a double by Addison Dillenbeck, two singles each by Johnson and Lewis and one by Brynn Howell.

Lewis finished with 4 hits, Robinson and Johnson 3 each and winning pitcher Haley Shaffer 2.

In the circle, Shaffer hurled a one hitter with two strikeouts.

Now at 16-1, Lyndonville will next host No. 5 York in the semifinals at 11 a.m. Saturday. York defeated No. 4 Oakfield-Alabama  5-2 in another quarterfinal contest.
