May 28, 2019

Jenna Sweeney went 2-for-3 with a triple, drove in a run and scored 3 times to power the Wilmington High softball team to a 15-3 rout of Newburyport on Monday.


WILMINGTON 15, NEWBURYPORT 3 — Ally Moran was again a force on the mound, striking out 11 and not allowing a walk in the non-league clash stopped after six innings.

Wilmington scored in every inning.

Ryan Bailey and Sweeney reached base four times. Bailey went 2-for-4 with 3 RBI.

LEICESTER 11, TYNGSBORO 0 — The Tigers were held to just one hit in the home defeat.

Leicester took a 3-0 lead after half an inning. Tyngsboro (11-6) has three regular-season games left.


TYNGSBORO 9, GARDNER 7 — Phil Sutherland earned the victory in relief and he also led the Tigers at the plate in Gardner.

Sutherland went 2--for-4 with a run scored and 4 RBI. On the mound, he pitched 2 innings and fanned 3. Also swinging a hot bat was Brandon St. Gelais, who went 2-for-5 with a run scored and 2 RBI. Connor Tompkins went 2-for-2 and scored twice, while Nolan Michaud went 2-for-4 and scored once.

BC HIGH 3, CHELMSFORD 0 — The Lions were involved in their fourth no-hitter of the season.

The Lions play Concord-Carlisle on Thursday and Westford on Saturday to end the regular season.


GREATER LAWRENCE 3, LOWELL CATHOLIC 0 — The Crusaders fell at home to Greater Lawrence.
