The Georges Valley baseball and softball teams continued their busy weeks Thursday afternoon and traveled to Lisbon Falls to take on the Greyhounds, with the Buccaneers coming away with a pair of late-season victories.

The Buc softball team continued its winning ways and shut out the host Greyhounds 9-0, while the Buc baseball squad earned their fourth win of the campaign with a 12-6 decision over Lisbon.

Despite being the only unbeaten team remaining in Western Class C, the Buc softball team’s latest win finally pushed them over the hump in the 18-team region and now it sits atop the standings.


Georges Valley 9, Lisbon 0 … At Lisbon Falls Thursday, Buccaneer pitchers limited the Greyhounds to two hits and Georges Valley’s offense again was clicking to the tune of 10 hits as the visitors stayed unbeaten on the season.

Leading the Bucs at the dish were Jessie Veilleux (triple, double, 2 RBIs), Jill Bradbury (2 doubles, single, 2 RBIs), Kennadi Grover (double, single, 2 RBIs), Natalie Russell (2 singles, 2 RBIs) and Katlyn Rich (single, RBI).

Haley Eck and Bailey Madore each singled to lead the Greyhounds.

Rachel Frye went the first four innings in the pitching circle for Georges Valley, allowing one hit and five walks, while striking out four batters. Bradbury tossed the final three frames, allowing one hit and one walk, while striking out two.

Kimber Morse went the distance for Lisbon in the pitcher’s circle, allowing 10 hits and three walks, while fanning four batters.

Buccaneer coach Rusty Worcester said he was pleased with the effort from the student-athletes, adding that “the Rachel Frye, Jill Bradbury connection” has worked well this week with both logging many innings, and batters one through four in the lineup were all repeat hitters.

“Very crisp, well-played game on both sides. We just hit the [ball] extremely well,” he said. “We had nine runs and nine RBIs and the biggest blow was five runs were knocked in with two outs. I told the team how devastating that is to our opponent. It takes the wind right out of them.”

Georges Valley (12-0, 103.7330 points) is first in the Maine Principals’ Association Heal Point Standings for the 18-team Western Class C region. The Bucs also have won 59 straight regular-season games.
