Steady action on the basepaths allowed West Shamokin and Freeport's softball players to stay warm during their season and Section 3-AA opener Tuesday afternoon.

Freeport prevailed, 16-11, in a game filled with offense and errors. Taylor Massart went 5 for 5 with two home runs and two doubles to lead the Yellowjackets (1-0, 1-0), who finished with 16 hits. Massart drove in five runs, while Alyssa Meta had four RBI during a 3-for-4 performance. Emily Lindsey also went 3 for 4, and both she and Meta doubled.

Tori Lowry doubled for West Shamokin (0-1, 0-1), which finished with six hits but received a boost from Freeport's eight errors.

Freeport led, 8-1, after two innings, but West Shamokin went ahead, 10-9, in the top of the fifth. The Yellowjackets responded with seven runs in the bottom half of the inning.

Ford City 19, Shady Side Academy 1 (3 inn.) — Karlee Smith drove in five runs on two hits including a triple, as Ford City rolled to a Section 3-AA win in its season opener. Jenna Wolsonovich also tripled and drove in four runs. Andrea Markilinski struck out six to pick up the pitching win.
