Final Score

Instant classic

Central Catholic’s Brady Abraham started the seventh with a walk, advanced to second on a sacrifice bunt and went to third on a passed ball. Then, with two outs, Nick Delois was called on to pinch-hit and delivered a single to right field to plate Abraham for the lone run in the Raiders’ 1-0 victory over Chelmsford.

Andrew Hamel needed just the one run, pitching a complete-game shutout. He struck out eight, including K-ing the side with the bases loaded in the second, and allowed just five hits.

Losing duel

Methuen senior Chrissy Scionti only gave up one run in nine innings, but Dracut ace Lauren Ramirez was even better, striking out 16 with a three-hitter in a 1-0 victory for the Middies.

Holding on

Londonderry’s girls scored nine goals in the first half and then held on for an exciting 12-11 victory over archrival Pinkerton. Alexa Bedell and Chelsea Leavis both had hat tricks for the Lancers.

Streaking Sachems

Ryan Kucher held the Rockport offense to just six hits and big offense from sophomore Pat Beaton (two hits and two RBIs) and junior Bobby Barry (key two-run single) set Pentucket up for a 6-0 victory. Connor McGuirk added a clutch RBI squeeze bunt for the Sachems, who have won five of their last six games.

Turn the Paige

Paige Webster lost a hard-fought, three-set battle at third singles in Andover’s season-opening 3-2 tennis loss to Lincoln-Sudbury, the only defeat the Warriors had suffered to date. In yesterday’s rematch, Webster shook off a first-set loss and rolled to a pair of 6-1 victories for the deciding point as Andover prevailed, 3-2.

Complete turnaround

Pelham girls tennis avenged a season-opening loss to Sanborn in style, romping to an 8-1 victory. Allyson Masson and Mary Hammar stepped up to contribute three wins for the Pythons.
