Tuesday’s Game Was Big

For a share of the League VI league championship

   Assuming the rain held off, the East Hampton High School softball team was to have played for a share of the League VI league championship here with Sayville Tuesday afternoon.
   Sayville lost 3-1 to Shoreham-Wading River and East Hampton defeated Miller Place 6-2 in games played Monday. The win improved East Hampton’s record to 13-4 and dropped Sayville’s to 14-3.
   Lou Reale, East Hampton’s coach, said his pitcher, Casey Waleko, “didn’t have her best stuff at Miller Place, but she ground it out. The game was closer than the score indicated — they threatened in every inning.”
   The big guns for the Bonackers that day were Kathryn Hess, who went 2-for-3 with two doubles and a run batted in with a sacrifice fly, and Deryn Hahn, who also went 2-for-3 and scored three runs. Waleko doubled too, driving in East Hampton’s first run in the top of the first inning.
