Cazenovia led 3-0 after two innings, but Marcellus tied it with three runs in the third. After the Lakers went back in front 4-3, the Mustangs put together another three-run rally in the top of the fifth and would expand the margin to 8-4 in the sixth inning.
The Lakers could not recover, though White smacked a home run, finishing with two RBIs, the same as McLaughlin. Chiarello also drove in a run as Holly Gamlen managed a pair of hits. Giving up 12 hits, Chiarello, in defeat, did record 11 strikeouts.
If the weather holds up, Cazenovia will go to the Fayetteville-Manlius Tournament on Monday, and then rest before league play resumed against Westhill more than a week later.
