Softball: Harrigan's heroics lead Guilderland into semis

Three-run homer in sixth inning propels Lady Dutch past Columbia

— Mallory Harrigan's three-run homer in the bottom of the sixth inning helped No. 3 Guilderland defeat No. 6 Columbia 7-5 in Friday's Section II Class AA softball quarterfinal game.

The Blue Devils scored three runs in the top half of the sixth inning to grab a 5-4 advantage before Harrigan's blast put the Lady Dutch ahead for good.

Mackenzie Lozano and Eileen Seery each added a pair of hits for Guilderland, which must wait until Tuesday before finding out who its semifinal opponent will be. The semis take place Wednesday at Veeder Park in Colonie.

Samara Perry went 3-for-5 at the plate with two runs scored for Columbia, while Alana Van Denberg accounted for two hits and two runs.
