SHELBURNE FALLS -- The Hoosac Valley softball team trailed by 1 after an inning, but scored at least one run in the next five innings to get a 7-2 win over Mohawk on Thursday.
"We put the ball in play and played good defense," said coach Morgan Shafer. "That’s what won this game for us."
Caroline Tomkowicz allowed four hits, struck out nine and walked three for the win.
Erin Girard, Tori Rumbolt and Sienna Witherall all tripled for the Hurricanes. This was Rumbolt’s first start since a leg injury sidelined her during the Western Mass. basketball playoffs.
