Maloney fanned 12 and allowed just two hits for the Lady Warriors. She also collected two hits for WA.
Bree Bednarski led WA at the plate with four hits, and Emily Wolfgang and Julez DeAngelo each had two hits for the Lady Warriors.
Megan Karuzie and Lauren Dragon had Pittston Area’s two hits while Allie Barber, Taylor Baloga and Julie Lieback scored the Lady Patriots runs.
In Monday’s game against Tunkhannock, the Lady Patriots looked like a different team.
Pittston Area came out and scored four runs in the first off an Allie Barber walk and hits by Lauren Dragon, Megan Karuzie, and Taylor Baloga.
PA would then allow seven runs to score between the third and the fourth, but In the bottom of the fourth, the Lady Patriots found their bats again.
Julie Lieback and Addison Hazlet received back-to-back free passes followed by a Barber bunt single and an RBI, then a Karuzie 2-run single.
The Lady Patriots scored three more runs in the fifth and then again in the sixth on hits by Baloga, Lieback, and a two-out, two-run single by Theresa Domarasky to put the game out of reach.
The Lady Patriots are now 4-4 on the season.
