GRAY-NEW GLOUCESTER 5, CAPE ELIZABETH 4: Chelsea Davis reached on a dropped third strike in the bottom of the seventh inning and eventually scored the winning run as the Patriots (5-4) beat Cape Elizabeth (5-5) in Gray.

Davis stole second and advanced to third on a passed ball before Syndey Rodrigues hit a hard shot to third. She retreated to the bag as the ball was fielded but broke for home on the throw to first and scored.

The Patriots tied the game on Allie Martell’s three-run double in the fifth.

Martell was the winning pitcher, striking out 10 while holding the Capers to four hits. Jessica Robicheaw took the loss despite striking out nine and allowing just three hits.
