WVC SOFTBALL ROUNDUP: Novicki, Bulldogs End Cougars Unbeaten Streak

May 15, 2019

Cleanup hitter Emily Novicki had a monster game at the plate, going 3 for 3 with a single, a double, a home run and five RBIs in the Berwick Bulldogs’ 6-2 home win against previously undefeated Hazleton Area on Tuesday.

Peyton Lipsey went 2 for 2 and scored three runs for the Dawgs. Starting pitcher Emma Stoker earned the win, while Novicki closed out the game for the save.

Olivia Wolk was 2 for 4 with a run scored for Hazleton Area, whose loss complicates the WVC Division 1 championship picture.

Hazleton Area dropped to 11-1 in league play. Second-place Pittston Area is 8-2 with a game Thursday at home against Hazleton Area, which will go a long way in determining the division champ.
