Some big hits for Apollo-Ridge softball weren't enough against the walking Jayhawks.

Dana Speranza doubled, tripled and drove in a run for the Vikings, but it wasn't enough against a Jeannette team that drew 12 walks on its way to a 9-2 nonsection win Monday afternoon in Jeannette.

Taylor Dilick also had a double for Apollo-Ridge (3-11), and Nicole Hall earned the win in the circle for the Jayhawks (11-3).

Knoch 12, Kittanning 0 (5 inn.) Knoch pitcher Taylor Sharer limited Kittanning to just two hits in a Section 5-AAA contest in Butler County.

Zach Junk had three hits and two RBI for playoff-bound Knoch (8-6, 6-2), which scored seven runs to break open a scoreless game in the bottom of the third inning.

Christian Miller took the loss on the hill for Kittanning (2-11, 1-7).

Playoffs must wait Leechburg (2-4, 2-3) entered Monday with a chance to clinch a playoff spot by defeating Springdale (3-6, 1-4) in a Section 4-A game, but that was one of many local games postponed because of rain. The Blue Devils will host Springdale at 3:45 p.m. Thursday.

Also postponed was a visit by playoff hopeful Ford City (5-5, 5-4) to Section 3-AA leader Deer Lakes (12-3, 9-0). That game will be played at 4 p.m. Tuesday.

Another Section 3-AA game — West Shamokin (2-9, 1-6) at Burrell (5-7, 5-4) — was rained out. That game will be played at 4 p.m. May 7.
