North Reading 5, Georgetown 2 Pouncing on the opposition: North Reading struck for 2 in the first and 3 in the second, staking Ryan McAuliffe to a 5-0 lead. The righty helped himself with an RBI double in the first and an RBI single in the second. Colby Maiola drove three with a single and a double. Absolute efficiency: McAuliffe used only 78 pitches, 62 for strikes, in the complete-game 8-hitter. Covering some turf: Maiola was everywhere in center. He finished with six putouts. Flashing leather: You may have found better shortstop play yesterday in the Bay State, but you might have had to go to Fenway. Both North Reading's R.J. Warnock and Georgetown's Colby Ingraham dazzled in the hole and up the middle. Coffin corner clout: The speedy Ingraham found a way to break through the stiff wind by slicing a liner to the deepest part of the park in right. He raced around the bases for an inside-the-park homer, crossing the plate with a head-first dive. The final verdict: North Reading is 12-0 and clinched the Cape Ann Large title. Georgetown suffered its fifth straight loss after opening at 7-0. The Royals (6-5 in league) are in a dogfight in the CAL small with Lynnfield (6-4) and Amesbury (6-4).
