Miracle win for Haverhill lax

Unbelievable win!

Kristy Robertson netted nine goals, including one in the first overtime and then the winner in a sudden-death third OT to lift Haverhill 17-16 over Pentucket.

The Hillies capped the upset after coming back from a four-goal deficit with 2 minutes left in regulation.

The victory was sweet revenge after losing 21-8 to Pentucket earlier this year.

The win also earned Haverhill a spot in the tournament.

Terban’s two-run blast

Katie Terban smashed a two-run homer to lead Georgetown 7-5 over Gloucester.

The comeback kid

Madeline Scovotti came back at No. 2 singles, 3-6, 6-4, 6-3, in the deciding match of the day to lead Haverhill 3-2 over Methuen.

Cycle for Maldonado

Juan Maldonado was 4 for 4, hit for the cycle and drove in five runs as Greater Lawrence beat Chelsea 14-3 in five innings.

“In 33 years I’ve never had someone hit for the cycle, now I’ve had two this year (Maldonado, Manny Rosario),” said Reggie coach Kevin Maloney.

Perfect timing

Andover senior Eugenie Moffitt picked the perfect time to hit the first homer of her varsity career. She blasted a walkoff homer to lead the Golden Warriors 8-7 over Masconomet.

She also singled and tripled.

Winning combination

The Methuen-Haverhill match, which had been suspended due to rain from May 8, was deadlocked at 2-2.

It all came down to a 2-hour marathon at No. 2 doubles.

Methuen’s Alex Le and Mike Wakim pulled it out in three sets and the Rangers prevailed 3-2.

Gold Glove Goddu

Centerfielder Mike Goddu made a terrific diving catch in the seventh to prevent the tying run from scoring and Georgetown beat Lynnfield 3-2.

Dan Manning drove in two of the Royal runs.
