Girls Minors eliminated by Elk Co.
Warren’s run in the District 10 Girls Minors All-Stars Tournament came to an end with a 9-2 loss to the Elk County All-Stars Monday at Hawbaker Field.
Taylor Napolitan stole home for Warren’s first run in the third inning and Ellee Irwin drove in Alyssa Anderson for another in the fifth.
Elk County – made up of players from Fox Township, Johnsonburg, and Ridgway – scored all they would need in a four-run second inning.
Girls Minors’ coach Amy Beers credited the effort from pitchers Emily Leichtenberger and Jena Wilson, who combined to throw all six innings.
Wilson, Anderson, Irwin, Riley Childress, and Carly Beers all had hits for Warren. Beers also played a strong defensive game from her position at second base.
The loss was the second of the postseason for Warren after dropping a 15-3 decision against St. Marys in last Thursday’s opener.
Elk County advances to play the loser of DuBois and Punxsutawney on Wednesday.
Warren 001 010 – 2 6
Elk Co. 142 200 – 9 3
