A roundup of all the high school games you missed — and aren’t covered elsewhere in the CDT — from May 16, 2017:


State College scores 14 but falls to Cedar Cliff

STATE COLLEGE — Fourteen runs are usually plenty to win a softball game — but Cedar Cliff had other plans in a thrilling 15-14 win over State College on Tuesday.

Adam Armstrong, Kalen Shvenke, Tyler Kreger and Ashton Wetzler were all strong on the mound as the quartet held Tyrone to only two total hits.

6th inning propels Eagles

WINGATE — Bald Eagle Area needed to respond in the sixth inning to beat Dubois — and it did just that in a 4-1 victory.

Grant King got things going after reaching base on an error. Jordan Jones bunted King home then, two batters later, Matt Reese hit a two-run single to put the Eagles on top. They never looked back.

On the mound, Ty Walker earned the win for Bald Eagle Area by allowing only three hits and striking out four.
