In a game that ended past 10:30 p.m. due to multiple delays, Andover National scored two runs in the bottom of the fifth to edge North Andover East 10-9 in Little League District 14 pool play last night.
North Andover led 9-8 in the fifth. But Patrick Dennehy started the Andover rally in the fifth with a double, and he and Andrew Theriault scored on a two-run double for Joe Biddle for the final margin.
Biddle had three hits on the day, including a homer in the fourth, an inning in which Theriault also went long. Nick Christopher added two doubles, Nick Dellatto earned the victory and Steve Shaw closed it out.
North Andover was paced by a home run each from Joe Quinlan, Jake McElroy and Steve Hajjar.
