QUEENSBURY — Sydney Szczepanik pitched a complete game three-hitter, and Jordyn Wozniak singled home the deciding run in the third inning as the Amsterdam High School softball team picked up its fifth consecutive victory, pulling out a 2-1 win Sunday against Queensbury.
The win guarantees Amsterdam (9-5, 6-3 Foothills Council) will finish with a better than .500 record in the Foothills Council, clinching a spot in the Section II Class A playoffs.
Szczepanik also tripled and scored on a Nicole DeRose sac fly in the second inning for the Lady Rams. After Queensbury tied the game in the bottom of the second, Amsterdam plated the go-ahead run in the third when Wozniak’s two-out RBI single brought home Madison Carmona.
Megan LaMont, Gaby Maroto and Kyrsten Orsini also singled for the Lady Rams.
After Queensbury got a run in the second inning, Szczepanik didn’t allow another hit until back-to-back two-out singles by Queensbury’s Fiona Hunt and Emma Sponzo in the sixth inning, but a flyout to center ended that threat and Szczepanik worked a perfect seventh inning to lock up the win.
The Lady Rams will be back in action today when they host league-leading South Glens Falls at 4:30 p.m. at Shuttleworth Park.
