Andover ousted in state semis on Galvin 3-hitter

LOWELL — Free-swinging and loose, Andover was ready to rip through another postseason foe. John Galvin would have none of it.

Galvin, the ace of the Norwood High staff which allowed just four runs in a four-game run to the South sectional title, shackled the North champ Golden Warriors on three hits to claim a 2-1 decision here in the Division 1 Eastern Mass. championship at LeLacheur Park.

Londonderry lances state title

MANCHESTER — Given a second chance, Londonderry walked off the NE Delta Dental Stadium yesterday much more euphorically than a year ago.

 

Twelve months after dropping a heartbreaking Division I state title game in a one-run decision to Exeter, the fifth-seeded Lancers knocked off third-seeded border-rival Pinkerton 4-1 to win the progam's fifth New Hampshire championship in six tries and third since 2004.

Andover wins first sectional title since '05

LYNN — Nothing about this run has come easy to the Andover High baseball team.
Four formidable foes from four different leagues, including top-seeded Peabody — and the Warriors simply mowed each down.
Last night here at Fraser Field, it was Chelmsford falling for the third time to the Warriors this season, 6-3,3 in the Division 1 North title game.
Two wins from a state title, with its first sectional champ trophy in hand for the first time since 2005, Andover made it seven wins in the last eight, improving to 16-8 on the year. Tuesday night (7 p.m.) at LeLacheur Park in Lowell, the Warriors battle South champion Norwood in the Eastern Mass. championship.
"As a coach, this puts me in some pretty elite company at the school with Ken Maglio and Dave Bettencourt," said Warrior boss Dan Grams. "For the kids, we told them if they win a banner, it's something nobody can take away from them. It's something they can show their kids someday and talk about."
As has been the case just about every time Andover stepped on the field this year, the Warriors found themselves in a dogfight, erasing deficits of 1-0 and 3-2 to pull even on Alex Brickman's sac fly in the fourth.
Andover took over in the bottom of the sixth, a frame that started pretty innocently when E.J. Perry IV backed into a soft curve ball, taking it off his backside.
Perry moved up on a John Cox sacrifice and aggressively took third on a pitch that bounced in the dirt.
Enter shortstop Gabriel Hernandez, who lashed a triple to right center.
"The infield was in, and I was looking to lift something over their heads," said Hernandez. 
Before Hernandez had a chance to catch his wind, he trotted home on Pat Pengeroth's triple. And Tim Awiszus piles on the insurance with a sacrifice fly of his own.
So suddenly, Andover led 6-3, and lefty Sam Bennett was in line to pick up his second straight tourney win out of the bullpen, needing three outs.
The southpaw, who stymied Waltham on Wednesday, made quick work of Chelmsford's top of the order with nary a scratch, prompting the celebration to commence.
"This one feels a lot different than hoops," said Hernandez, a key reserve on the Warrior basketball team that fell in the sectional finals at Tsongas Center to rival Central. "This feels unbelievable. It's huge."
Righty Colin Flynn got the start on the mound for the Warriors and delivered an effort that could be best described as determined and courageous.
Relentless attacking the Lions, he worked 5.1 innings, allowing six hits and no walks, while striking out five. None of the three runs he gave up were earned.
Bennett entered a 3-3 game with one on and one out in the Chelmsford sixth, slamming the door shut and allowing his team to rally in the bottom half for the win.

Spicer, Benjamin deliver for Pelham

Chris Benjamin went the distance, striking out 11 in a five-hit gem, but Pelham's tourney-opening victory was anything but a walk in the park.
 
Fall Mountain, seeded 11th, gave No. 6 Pelham all it could handle, taking a 1-1 game into the sixth when the Pythons struck for two and put it away.
 
Benjamin started the winning rally with a hit, and both he and Ryan Frank were safe when the latter placed perfect bunt down. Chris Gamble moved the two up with a sacrifice of his own, and All-Stater Dan Spicer doubled them both home.
 
The Pythons catch a break today, hosting the quarters at 2 p.m. vs. Bow. The visitors, seeded 14th, KO'd No. 3 Monadnock in the opener.
