Solid pitching, late rally push MCS Blue Devils past SK on the diamond

What started as an old-fashioned pitching duel turned into a 9-1 Margaretville non-league victory when the Blue Devils massed eight runs in the sixth inning last Tuesday in South Kortright. Devin Amundsen’s two-RBI double and Cooper Reither’s two-RBI single helped open the floodgates in Margaretville’s big inning.

With the goal of helping a young girl who was entering into foster care, Saira held several bake sales to raise funds. Her thought was that while foster homes provide an improved environment, the situation often is accompanied by considerable uncertainty.

By Joe Moskowitz
Margaretville residents, who have been waiting since 2011 to be able to drive over the Swart Street Bridge, will have to continue waiting and Delaware County, which owns the bridge, still doesn’t know how much longer that wait will be.
