BREWSTER, N.Y. - Lakeland ‘s softball squad won 4-3 at second-seeded Brewster in a nine-inning affair in a thrilling Section 1 Class A semifinal softball contest on May 24.

The No. 3 Hornets took the lead for good when Cameron Lischinsky hit an RBI single, a dribbler up the middle, which drove in Amber Lopez, giving Lakeland what turned out to be the winning run in the top of the ninth.

“Amber was on second and honestly I wasn't sure if the hit was going to go through the pitcher and infield but once it did and I realized the run scored I was really happy and thrilled,” Lischinksy said.
