ALEXANDRIA BAY, N.Y. (WWNY) - Area teams were taking advantage of Monday’s nice weather.

One of the teams with a home game was the Alexandria softball team.

The Purple Ghosts headed into its game with Copenhagen with a 6-1 overall mark, 5-1 in the Frontier League.

The Purple Ghosts would beat the Golden Knights 23-7.

The Copenhagen game starts off what will be a tough week of games for coach Mike Roberts and his Alexandria team.

“We have Copenhagen this evening then Tuesday we go to Beaver River, then Copenhagen again on Wednesday,” Roberts said. “Then a very strong team, Thousand Islands on Thursday and then sandy creek, yet again another strong team, on Saturday and it’s really going to show where we stand and how much grit we have as a team.”
