Kylie Kane’s one-out single in the bottom of the eighth inning gave Sun Valley a 3-2 victory over Upper Moreland in the first round of the District 1 Class 5A tournament Wednesday.
Claudia Davis ripped an RBI single and Bridget Thomas added an RBI double in the sixth inning to tie the game. Thomas started the Sun Valley eighth with a single and went to second on a sacrifice bunt by Carli Williams. Pinch-hitter Madison Koons followed with a single to put Thomas on third base. Kane followed with her winning single.
Thomas went 3-for-4 with two doubles and one RBI. Catcher Alayna Lloyd added two hits, one walk, one run scored and threw out three would-be base stealers.
The Vanguards visit second-seeded Bishop Shanahan in Friday’s quarterfinals.
In another District 1 Class 5A game:
Bishop Shanahan 6, Radnor 0 >> Devon Miller struck out 14 en route to a masterful two-hit shutout of the Raiders.
In her final game, Radnor ace Brooke Nicander pitched better than the score would indicate. She scattered eight hits and four earned runs while striking out five.
Sydney Alijan and Grace Moore each singled for the Radnor.
