FREWSBURG - Frewsburg (14-5) held the lead for most of the game in its non-league softball battle with Forestville, but the Lady Hornets (14-2) came alive in the final inning to pull away to a 9-2 victory.
The game has special meaning because Forestville is coached by Brianna Prince Hazelton, a former Bears pitcher for Frewsburg coach Jon Blanchard.
Starter Sam Mott and the Bears were ahead, 2-1, after six innings, but Forestville's bats suddenly came alive as the Lady Hornets exploded for eight hits and eight runs, highlighted by Emily Dillenburg's three-run homer and a single that brought home two more runs in the top of the seventh. Cherish Pope had two hits while Ryanne Dugan went the distance to earn the complete-game victory with seven strikeouts and no walks.
Mott took the loss, surrendering nine hits with 14 strikeouts and a walk.
Also for the Bears, Bethany Steele had two hits and Shawna Raymond and Reyanne Strong both doubled.
