Snapping a season long six league game losing streak, Medina downed host Newfane 15-4 in a Niagara-Orleans softball game this evening.

The Mustangs put a lock on the victory by exploding for 9 runs in the seventh inning highlighted by a three-run home run by Iyla Lilleby, a double and triple by winning pitcher Samantha Heschke and a triple and single by Lorelei Sanders.

Lilah Class also had a triple and Molly Cook a double on the day for the Mustangs.

Roy-Hart 3, Akron 2
Three unearned runs in the first inning proved to be just enough to earn Roy-Hart a narrow 3-2 N-O win over Akron.

Akron pulled to within 3-2 on an RBI double by Ashlee Henning in the seventh inning but the Lady Rams turned a double play triggered by right fielder Olivia Marsillo to lock up the win.

Roy-Hart is now 5-2 and Akron 2-6 in N-O action.

Lyndonville 20, Byron-Bergen 5
Lyndonville improved to 6-2 in Genesee Region League softball action with a 20-5 inning run rule victory at Byron-Bergen.

Winning pitcher Hannah Fox, Bella Groves and Brooke Robinson each had 3 hits and Olivia Belgiorno 2 to lead the Lyndonville offense.
