Tough day for Ken-Ton HS sports

Tonawanda News — Soggy field conditions kept several Tonawanda-area teams from competing Wednesday, but those that did take to the turf didn’t fare so well. Kenmore East fell in baseball, softball, boys tennis and track and field while Kenmore West took losses in baseball and boys tennis. North Tonawanda also suffered defeat in boys tennis. 

BASEBALL

Niagara Falls 7, Ken West 3

Errors and cold bats caused a slow start for the Wolverines (2-1, 1-0 NFL), but Michael Eagler led the comeback from the plate and the mound, prompting a three-run fifth inning that allowed the Niagara Falls to erase a 3-1 deficit. They added three more runs in the sixth inning and Eagler shut down the Blue Devils bats, finishing off his complete game with 11 strikeouts while allowing just three hits and one earned run. Eagler also went 2 for 3 with three RBIs while David Yarger and Mike Colosi had two hits apiece. Taylor Huntsman added a pair of RBIs. Jason Fron led the Blue Devils (0-1) with an RBI double and a run scored.
