Lions conquer Niagara Falls

Sobieraski, LHS ‘9’ too much for NFL-champion Wolverines.

LOCKPORT —

NIAGARA FALLS — The Wolverines won the title, but they still can't beat Charlie Sobieraski.

Lockport's UB-bound senior ace was dominating again in the Lions' 5-4 win over Niagara Falls on Tuesday at Sal Maglie Stadium, in the NFL finale for both teams. The Falls, which clinched the NFL title Monday with a 4-2 win over Lewiston-Porter, finished the season 12-2, while the Lions were just a game back at 11-3.

Tuesday's contest was the continuation of a game tied 3-3 and suspended in the 13th inning on May 1, due to darkness. 

"Lockport had their best pitcher on the mound with Chuck Sobieraski," said Wolverines head coach Joe Contento. "He pitched really well in key spots for them. It happened to be we saw their best today."

Lockport broke the game open in the top of the 13th inning, as walk and a wild pitch set up a double which brought the go-ahead run home, followed a short while later by a single that extended the lead to 5-3.

Niagara Falls threatened to keep the game alive in the bottom of the 13th, getting runners aboard with walks and then an error on what looked like a routine double play grounder. However, two batters then struck out followed by a play to first to end it.

 

ECIC SOFTBALL

Starpoint 2, Iroquois 0

PENDLETON — Head coach Joe Hill's Lady Spartans closed out their 2014 ECIC co-championship season with an impressive shutout win over visiting Iroquois on Tuesday. 

The Lady Spartans and Williamsville South split their two meeting this spring and will share the title with identical 11-1 league records.

Winning pitcher Ashley Owens hurled a complete-game shutout for the garnet and gray, striking out 10 and allowing just three base hits.

Owens helped her own cause at the plate as well, going 3-for-3.
