BROOKLYN- In a non-conference varsity softball doubleheader last night, the Lady Comets of Hanover Horton, behind steady pitching, solid defense and timely hitting, rolled into Brooklyn and swept the Lady Golden Eagles.
In game one, Hanover scored two first inning runs, added three more in the third and rolled to a 6-1 win. Game two found Hanover leading 3-0 before the Eagles pushed across three runs in the sixth inning to tie the game. But Hanover answered with two seventh inning runs of their own and held on for the two game sweep, 5-3.
It’s back to L.C.A.A. league play tonight as the Lady Golden Eagles travel to Onsted for a 4:00 pm. doubleheader.
