HALL-DALE 3, TRAIP ACADEMY 0: The eighth-seeded Bulldogs (8-8) played errorless defense in support of Kailey Roberts, who tossed a four-hitter against ninth-ranked Traip Academy (6-11) in a Class C South prelim at Farmingdale.

Hall-Dale took advantage of a one-out throwing error in the sixth inning and rallied for three runs.

The Bulldogs advanced to the quarterfinals Thursday against top-ranked Madison, the defending state champion.

“All around that is the best game that we’ve played all year,” Hall-Dale Coach Steve Acedo said.

The Bulldogs couldn’t do much against Reilly Eddy, who struck out 11 for Traip to run her season total to 201.

But in the sixth inning, Eddy threw Jill Whynot’s bunt attempt into right field, and Whynot reached third. Amanda Benner followed with another bunt that fell for a fielder’s choice with Whynot holding at third.

With one out, Isabella Marino drilled a ball to left that fell for a double that made it 2-0.

Roberts followed with a base hit to right that was misplayed and allowed Marino to score.

“It always comes down to the errors,” Traip Coach Chris Andrews said.
