Valley View built a 5-0 lead over Dunmore in the third inning in Tuesday’s Lackawanna League softball action.
Casey Pearce hit a sharp single to center field for the first run of the game off Dunmore pitcher Sara Ross.
Anna McElroy followed with her two run single to make it 3-0 Cougars.
Sara Miraglia’s infield single sent home run number four and the fifth run of the inning came on a Lady Buck error.
In the top of the fourth inning Dunmore loaded the bases with no outs. That’s when Valley View pitcher Gina Chieffallo turned it up a few degrees and struck out the side to end any Dunmore threat-preserving the five run lead.
Valley View would add four more runs in the bottom of the fourth and three in the 6th for the 12-2 win in six innings over Dunmore.
