I travelled to North Haven Wednesday afternoon, DeMayo Field, to check out Amity-North Haven, an SCC Tournament Quarterfinal Game.
It was a battle all the way. North Haven scored 2 runs in the bottom of the 1st inning, but Amity tied it with 2 runs of their own in the 3rd. North Haven then scored 5 runs in the bottom of the 4th, Amity scored 3 in the 5th and 1 in the 7th, BUT fell short, and North Haven hung on for a 7-6 victory. With the win, North Haven Baseball Coach Bob DeMayo earned his 900th career win. He has been coaching since 1959.
Steve Erbe had a single, double and 3 rbis, and Andrew Laudano had a single and 2 rbis for North Haven. Luca Lawrence was the winning pitcher.
Quinn Burke had 2 hits and 3 rbis, Julian Stevens had 3 hits for Amity.
North Haven advances to the SCC Tournament Semifinals Thursday to take on Fairfield Prep. Branford will battle Hand in the other Semifinal.
The 2 winners of the afternoon Semifinal games will meet Thursday night at Piurek Field in West Haven at 7pm for the SCC Championship.
