Snapping a season opening four game losing streak, Medina used a late scoring surge to defeat CSAT 5-1 this afternoon in a Niagara-Orleans League softball contest at Vets Park.

Breaking away from a 1-1 deadlock, Medina moved on top to stay with a run on an error in the bottom of the fifth.

The Mustangs then picked up three big insurance runs in the sixth inning on a home run by Hailey Seaman, two walks, an error and a pair of wild pitches.

Medina is now 1-3 and CSAT 2-3 in N-O action.
