High school softball: Bellefonte edges Clearfield

Bellefonte scored twice in the sixth to tie the game and won it in the seventh as the Lady Red Raiders edged Clearfield 5-4 on Wednesday.

Rachel Hoffman’s three-run homer, her second of the game, gave Clearfield a 4-2 lead after five innings.

Bellefonte scored twice in the sixth as Olivia Ripka doubled and scored on an error and Sarah Menna had an RBI single.

With two outs in the seventh, Rachel Bernier singled and raced home as Vanessa Cooper boomed a double down the left-field line.

"It was a gutsy team win," said Bellefonte coach Gregg Kohlhepp, whose team improved to 5-1. "We came through late and had a great mentality at the plate."
