SACOPEE VALLEY 11, MT. ABRAM 1: The second-seeded Hawks (14-4) opened with six runs in the bottom of the first inning, fueled by a two-run double from Bryce Stacy, as they dispatched the third-seeded Roadrunners (12-6) in five innings in a Class C South semifinal in Hiram.

James Ritter earned the win, allowing one run on two hits while fanning nine in 4 2/3 innings. He also drove in three runs.

Ash Rollins scored Mt. Abram’s run in the top of the fifth. He led off by getting hit by a Ritter pitch, stole second, moved to third on a balk and scored on Brennan Mitchell’s RBI groundout.
