The Eagles will be back in action Thursday when they travel to Bellefonte.

Three Little Lions finished with two hits apiece Tuesday, including Liam Clarke, Kevin Karstetter and Matt Tomczuk.

Central shuts out Penns Valley

SPRING MILLS Central was able to complete the season sweep over Penns Valley with a 6-0 victory on Tuesday night.

The Rams kept pace with the Dragons through three innings, but the narrative changed quickly with Central scoring in each of its last four innings to pull away.

Senior Luke Synder got the start for Penns Valley, pitching six innings and giving up five runs on six hits while striking out three Dragons.

Standouts at the plate for the Rams included senior Keith Butts, who had 2 singles, and junior Thomas Kauffman who had the team’s only extra-base hit with a double.

The middle of the order was also one of the Lady Little Lions’ strong points: Avery Cymbor had a single, two doubles and three RBIs, while Andrea Kling had a double and three RBIs.

State College will look to continue its momentum against Cedar Cliff on Thursday.

Penns Valley rallies late

Bellefonte falls short to Central

BELLEFONTE The Lady Red Raiders couldn’t keep pace with the Central Lady Dragons on Tuesday as they lost 5-3.
