The Final Score

Nasser near perfect

Ravenne Nasser of Methuen came within two outs of pitching a perfect game but happily settled for her second win of the season, as Phillips defeated host Worcester Academy, 7-2. Worcester’s lineup had no answer for Nasser, managing just two hits in the seventh when the outcome had been all but decided. Nasser (2-0) allowed one earned run, walked one and struck out six during her seven innings of work. Kayla Maloney of Windham led the way offensively, going a perfect 5-5 day at the plate. She homered in the third inning, doubled in the sixth inning, and singled in the first, fifth, and seventh innings.

All Wells and good

Andrew Wells delivered his 20th career complete-game, striking out 11, to help lead Whittier past Lowell Catholic, 4-3. Wells helped himself as well, going 3 for 3 and driving in a key run.

Cyr sharp

Methuen High needed to end a tough week on a high, and Cam Cyr delivered exactly what the Rangers needed. The senior lefty tossed a complete-game five-hitter, striking out four as the Rangers toppled Lowell, 3-1. “That was a gutsy, gutsy job out there by Cam. He put us on his back today,” said Ranger coach Eric Cyr of his Godson/ace. Gary Carbonneau had two of the six Methuen hits, and Danny Aziz drove in a pair of runs in the win.

Ziomek dominates Exeter

Senior Rory Ziomek made a great senior memory for himself, tossing one-hit complete-game shutout for Phillips Andover to beat rival Phillips Exeter, 1-0. The Tufts-bound righty struck out 13 and walked one. David McCullough singled with two outs in the first, moved to third on an wild pickoff throw and scored on John Festa’s RBI hit, plating the only run of the game. Exeter had won the opener of the doubleheader, 4-2.
