Manteca Bulletin - - Sports - By DAVE CAMP­BELL

CERES – Man­teca did not plate a run un­til the sev­enth in­ning when the Buf­faloes scored four on the way to a 4-1 win over host Cen­tral Val­ley in non-league softball ac­tion Mon­day.

Kaileah Jo­hannsen and Ko­ryn Me­nasco sin­gled in the sev­enth for Man­teca ( 7- 1). Rhi­an­non Ge­nilla dou­bled to score Jo­hannsen and get the Buf­faloes on the board. Alyssa Harn­den’s fielder’s choice scored Me­nasco, Ge­nilla scored on an er­ror of the bat of Alyssah Harn­den and Kaylee MacDan­nald tripled, scor­ing Wash­burn for a 4-1 lead.

Me­nasco held the Hawks score­less in the sev­enth and struck out seven, al­low­ing one run on seven hits. Bella Gon­za­les dou­bled for Man­teca.

“Their pitcher was dom­i­nant,” Buf­faloes coach Josh Far­ris said. The mid­dle and back

lennium (2-6) of the Cen­tral California Ath­letic Al­liance in their half of the third, ty­ing the game at 2-2 while leav­ing the bases juiced with run­ners.

That set the ta­ble for first base­man Joseph DeBruyn, who blasted a bases-clear­ing dou­ble to cen­ter.

Cole Gem­mell and Drake Nel­son then drew con­sec­u­tive walks, load­ing the bases once again.

Nolan Lin­g­ley plated DeBruyn with a sin­gle to left and Ian Vriel­ing de­liv­ered home Gem­mell with a sac­ri­fice fly.

Ahead 7-2, RC added a run in the fourth. Caleb Terp­stra, who had a one-out sin­gle, ad­vanced on a wild pitch and scored on a base hit by Declan Van Vuren.

The Fal­cons got two of those runs back in the fifth thanks to Josiah Joseph’s man­u­fac­tured run — he stole sec­ond fol­low­ing a lead-off walk, ad­vanc­ing to third on a wild pitch, and scor­ing on a fielder’s choice — and Ed Perez’s RBI sin­gle.

The Knights added their fi­nal two runs in the sixth.

Dale Fisher had a oneout sin­gle, scor­ing on Terp­stra’s dou­ble to left. Af­ter Van Vuren was struck by a pitch, DeBruyn laced an RBI sin­gle.

Vriel­ing, who came on in re­lief in the third, was the win­ning pitcher. Willem Hoek­stra recorded the fi­nal two outs in the sev­enth.

DeBruyn had three hits with four RBI. Terp­stra and Nolan Lin­g­ley col­lected two hits and an RBI each.
