Area Roundup - Indians pow-wow Blazers late

April 19, 2002


WAYNESBORO, Pa. - No. 8 Waynesboro proved Wednesday the old adage, "Better late than never," is still applicable in the 21st century.

Held to one hit through six innings, the Maidens opened the bottom of the seventh with four straight hits, scoring three runs for a 3-2 victory over upset-minded Clear Spring, their fourth win in a row.

"They controlled us, and we hit a couple of balls real well in the sixth," Waynesboro coach Doug Stuart said. "I thought maybe it just wasn't going to happen for us today. Then boom, boom, boom, and we won it."

Erika Besecker started the rally with a single and stole second for Waynesboro (7-3) off Stacey Yeakle. Emily Hess tripled her home, and Kelly Carpenter knocked in Hess with a double to tie the game.


Holly Wagaman finished things off with a game-winning single to bring Carpenter home.

"Yeakle really controlled us. She's a real nice pitcher," Stuart said. "And that's a tough one for them to lose. But we battled today and it paid off."
