Down 9-0, NECC rallies for victory

For the second time in as many nights, the Northern Essex Knights baseball team came back from an early deficit to bring back wins, winning against Massasoit Community College 12-11.

The Knights trailed 9-0 after four innings before they chipped away at the lead, with each run the Knights built some momentum. After a Chris Martin two-run homer in the fifth to make the score 9-5, the Knights had victory in their sights. Dario Medrano homered in the sixth.

Despite miscues in the field, Northern Essex came together as a group and never left their spirits waver.

Cameron Berube came in to the game in the fourth inning, and threw four innings of one-hit baseball out of the bullpen. Berube struck out five and walked two, giving NECC a boost from the mound.

The Knights move to the Region XXI Championship on Sunday, and with a win advance to the NJCAA Division 3 Championship in Tyler, Texas.
