In one of the wildest softball games of the year, Guilderland rallied from a nine-run deficit to stun Bethlehem 16-15 in Friday's Section II Class AA quarterfinal game in Delmar.
The sixth-seeded Lady Dutch scored four runs in the fifth inning and five runs in the sixth to erase the Lady Eagles' 15-6 lead. Guilderland then scored a run in the top of the seventh to go ahead for good.
Guilderland's rally made a winner out of reliever Taylor Tewksbury. She limited No. 3 Bethlehem to one hit over the last four innings after the Lady Eagles collected 15 runs on 15 hits over the first three frames.
Taylor and Morgan TenEyck each had three hits for Guilderland, which pounded out 20 hits in the game. Taylor TenEyck belted a three-run homer, and Morgan TenEyck drove in five runs with a double and two singles. Jenna Cubello singled three times and tripled, and Jess Peck added three hits and three runs scored.
McKenzie Pezze had a three-run homer, while Cassie Smith and Mikayla Shade each added three hits for Bethlehem. One of Smith's three hits was a home run.
