Dynamite debut for Lawrence soph

Dynamite debut

 

In his first varsity start, Lawrence sophomore Brahiam Ortega allowed just three hits to pick up his first victory in a 5-0 win over Tyngsboro.

Spinning a gem

Evan Lacroix allowed just a single hit and one unearned run, retiring the final 17 batters he faced on the way to giving Methuen a 4-1 victory over Dracut.

Stangman the man

Defender Luke Strangman scored two goals, including the game-winner with just over three minutes to play, to give Pentucket a 5-4 win over Lynnfield.

Making a difference

Defenseman Tyler Weeks was “a difference-maker,” according to Andover head coach Wayne Puglisi, doing it all in a key 6-5 lacrosse victory over Masconomet. “He was stupendous in our transition game and he grabbed some big ground balls to give us energy and help us win,” said Puglisi of Weeks, who assisted Justin Brosnan on the game-winning goal with 6:06 left to play.

Super Senior Day

It was appropriate that Sirena Paiva, the only senior on the team, rapped a single that scored Julie Hamilton (double) with the walk-off, game-winner as Londonderry downed Exeter, 6-5 in eight innings on Senior Day.

No-hitter romp

North Reading’s softball team got upset by Pentucket earlier in the season and was not about to let that happen again. The Hornets (15-4) blasted the Sachems 15-0 in five inning as Terri Ferrazzani threw a no-hitter, striking out nine.

Salute to Ahlholm

Paige Ahlholm’s three-run homer in the first inning were all the runs pitcher Kim Crucioli and North Andover needed in a 3-0 victory over Masconomet. Crucioli threw a three-hit shutout, striking out 14, as the Knights (8-10) kept their playoff hopes alive.

Turning the tide

After a run of eight straight losses, Salem baseball has righted the ship with its second straight victory, 5-3 over Bishop Guertin. Jake White’s fielder’s choice scored Cody Soucy with the game-winner while Matt Survilas opened the scoring with a solo homer in the third inning.
