BRISTOL - The St. Paul baseball team threatened all afternoon on Saturday but only managed to score a single run in its 5-1 home loss to Oxford. The Falcons got runners into scoring position in all but one inning but only one runner crossed home plate.

St. Paul’s only run came in the bottom of the sixth inning, when Julian Thayer hit a RBI single.

Wes Lahey took the loss on the mound for the Falcons after going six innings, giving up eight hits and four earned runs while striking out seven.

Jack Bator pitched the last inning, getting two strikeouts and allowing no baserunners.

The Wolverines scored a pair in the third inning on a two-run home run by Tom Davis and three in the sixth. Michael Michaud hit a two-RBI single and a throwing error two batters later allowed the third run of the frame to score.

At the plate for the Falcons, Bator went 3-for-4 and Andrew Owsianko had a double - St. Paul’s only extra-base hit of the game.

SOFTBALL

Brookfield 18, Terryville 1 (5 innings): The Bobcats got off to a fast start, scoring 13 runs in the first inning, on their way to the win over the Kangaroos. Another three runs in the second by Brookfield put the game more than out of reach for Terryville.

The Kangaroos held a brief lead in the game, scoring their only run in the top of the first inning but it did not last. Alycia Calabrese and Lexie Gonska each had one double for the Terryville offensive highlights.

Alexa Nelson suffered the loss in the circle.
