Final Score

Squeezing a winner

Andrew Deloury led off the eighth with a double, advanced to third on a fielder’s choice and scampered home on a picture-perfect suicide squeeze bunt by Chris Dunn for the run that gave Andover a 4-3 victory over Chelmsford.

Cam Farnham scored the eventual tying run in the fifth when he walked, took off on the following pitch and came all the way around to score from first on a bloop that dropped in the infield.

Prevailing again

Pinkerton won its second straight game in the final inning, scoring twice in the bottom of the seventh in an 8-7 victory over Nashua South. Kelly Fitzsimmons tripled in Candace Moore for the tying run and then scored on Sam Comeau’s RBI single.

Much of Moore

Leslie Moore was 4 for 5 with four RBIs and scored three runs as Central Catholic trounced Billerica 15-5. Meg Sears got the win and helped her own cause with two hits and an RBI.

Gem for Zewiey

Backup pitcher Leslie Zewiey had the best game of her career, throwing a sparkling two-hitter with 15 strikeouts and no walks as North Reading (10-4) qualified for the tournament with a 9-0 win over Ipswich.

Triple crowned

D’Andre Drummond-Mayrie (discus, 100, 4x100) and Jeremy Zannini (long jump, 110 hurdles, 4x100) were triple winners to power Central Catholic in a 99-46 win over Andover.

Surprising hero

Georgetown sophomore Danielle Quercia, in just her second start of the season, had a perfect game through four innings and got the win with a tournament-clinching 2-1 win over Triton. Quercia also had both RBIs in the fifth with a perfect bunt that drove in runners from second and third. Ali Newbury was 2 for 3 and scored a run for the Royals (10-3), who won only four games last year.

Lucky 13

Methuen qualified for the tournament for the 13th straight year by whipping Tewksbury 9-1. Nina Correia had two hits, two RBIs and scored for the Rangers (10-3).
