With the Suffolk County class A softball championship title up for grabs, Miller Place forced a game three with Bayport where both teams were tied at 1-1 after three innings. The Panthers turned the tide in the bottom of the 4th when Julia Lent with bases loaded, laid off a pitch for the walk to plate Sydney Stocken for the go ahead run. Madison Power’s bat spoke next with a base hit driving in two runs to make it a three-run lead. Jessica Iavarone the starting pitcher stepped into the batter’s box and ripped a shot to deep right for a base clearing standup RBI triple to put her team out front 7-1.
Bayport managed a run in the top of the 5th but their bats went silent the rest of the way.
