HERMON – The No. 6 Foxcroft Academy Ponies softball team found itself in position to pull off an upset against a traditional powerhouse after a big first inning.
The Ponies knocked in two runs off Hermon star Bree Oakes, with captain Grace Bickford slamming a double near the left field wall. But there would not be much offense after that for the Ponies.
The Hawks rallied back over the course of the next two innings and led from there, winning 10-4 and setting up a meeting with No. 2 Old Town in the Class B North semifinals.
