Brandon Ruef out at first

Brandon Ruef hustles to first against Coudersport, but got there a step too late.

When Coudersport traveled to Galeton Tuesday, April 23, the Falcons got back to their winning ways in dramatic fashion. In their last game, the Falcons lost a close battle with Otto-Eldred 5-4 and were looking to get back in the win column when they traveled to Galeton where the Tigers were still searching for their first win of the season.

Coudersport jumped ahead early and never looked back.

The Tigers conceded two runs in the first before allowing six in the second inning. The Falcons scored five runs between the fourth and fifth innings to seal a 13-0 five-inning victory.

Two nights later the Tigers fell in both halves of a double header with Otto-Eldred. The Terrors are 9-1 overall this season and and sit atop District 9 Class A.

In the first game Galeton had held Otto-Eldred to just four runs through three innings. The Terrors erupted in the fourth and fifth innings with four and seven runs to earn a 15-0 victory.

The second game was similar in that Otto-Eldred had broken double digits in five innings.

Galeton managed to score one run in the fourth but the Terrors already had 14 runs and were able to cruise to a 14-1 win.

Galeton continued the hunt for their first win of the season Tuesday, April 30 when they hosted Bucktail. Following the matchup with Bucktail, the Tigers hit the road for a game in Port Allegany against the 3-4 Gators who picked up a 3-2 win over Cowanesque Valley last week. The score from these games will be in next week’s paper.
