CLARENCE - A day after plating eight runs and racking up eight hits in a come-from-behind, season-opening victory against Erie County Interscholastic Conference Division 1 foe West Seneca West, the Jamestown Red Raiders were held hitless against host Clarence in a 3-0 loss.
Despite strong pitching performances from Nick Tobias, who went five innings, struck out five, walked three and allowed three earned runs, and reliever Adam Westling, who tossed an inning and fanned one, the Red Raiders' hitters couldn't solve Clarence starter Mark Armstrong as the hurler went the distance without surrendering a single hit while striking out 15.
The loss drops Jamestown to 1-1 on the season. The Red Raiders won't be in action again until they square off against Pendleton, S.C., in Myrtle Beach on Monday.

The victory improved the Thunderbirds to 2-0 on the season while Ripley falls to 0-1.

Chautauqua Lake took a 2-1 lead after the first inning and then expanded the advantage to 4-1 by the end of the third, but it was its six-run fifth inning that sealed the victory.
