Final Score

Fabulous Fabrizio

Winning pitcher Natalie Fabrizio had a double and home run among her three hits and drove in four runs as Pinkerton clipped Londonderry 10-6. Freshman Abby Amato was 3 for 4 and scored twice for the Astros while Shannon Crowley was 2 for 3 with two RBIs and two runs scored for the Lancers.

Big day for Methuen

Not only did Aryanna Poirier reach a milestone by scoring the 99th, 100th, 101st, 102nd and 103rd goals of her career, but Methuen girls lacrosse also qualified for the state tournament with a 19-9 win over Dracut.

Home run parade

North Reading hit four home runs, including two by freshman Cassidy Gaeta, in a 15-1 romp over Manchester Essex. Jenn Castro and Kendra Butner also had homers and Julia Perrone threw a five-inning one-hitter.

Gerossie, Pinkerton prevail

Chris Gerossie helped Pinkerton gain a regular season split with Londonderry, going six strong innings in a 4-2 Astros win. John Polichetti pitched a scoreless seventh for his second save. Both teams are now 8-3.

Warriors need rally

Andover defeated Lawrence in softball, but victory wasn’t easy as the Golden Warriors needed four in the seventh to tie and one in the eighth to win. JoJo Olson doubled, and Amy Bordogna, Nicole Ericson and Tori Roche all had key singles in the four-run seventh. In the eighth, Paige Hartnett doubled and moved to third on a wild pitch, then came trotting home on Abby Day’s RBI single.

Pierce lifts Rangers

Jon Pierce drove in three runs on a pair of hits, and Evan Lacroix added three hits and three runs in the leadoff spot, lifting Methuen to a key win over Andover, 7-5.

Raider bats heat up

Kevin Regan went 4 for 4, leading a 16-hit Central attack as the Raiders picked up a much needed win to end the week, 10-7, over Chelmsford. Tom Pelletier earned his first win, with a couple solid innings of relief work.
