Belmont 5, Prospect Mountain 3

Key players: Belmont – Wyatt Divers (7 IP, 3 H, 1 ER, 2 BB, 5 K); Hutch Haskins (1-for-3, 2 RBI), Anakin Underhill (1-for-2, walk, stolen base, run), Michael Collette (0-for-2, 2 sacrifices, 2 RBI)

Highlights: After two quick outs in the first, Prospect scored two runs and held Belmont at bay, but the Raiders scored two in both the second and third innings, and added one more in the fifth. The Timberwolves scored on in the sixth on two errors, a walk, a hit by pitch and a fielder’s choice, but went down in the seventh on four pitches.

Coach’s quote: “It wasn’t our best fielding day as we committed a lot of errors and provided a good opponent multiple extra outs. Divers pitched well and hung in there and earned a hard fought W. Timely hitting and patience at the plate allowed us to pull it out.” – Belmont’s Matt LeBlanc

Records: Belmont 7-1; Prospect Mtn. 5-5

Softball

Hopkinton 18, Conant 10

Key players: Hopkinton – Steph Elrick (7 IP, 10 H, 4 K, 1 BB), Ally Duval (2-for-3, walk), Paige Boudette (2-for-3, 2 runs; put out at first from RF), Kinley St. Cyr (2-for-5, HR, double), Lizz Holmes (2-for-4; defense at CF)

Highlights: The Hawk defense was inconsistent and Conant took advantage of some misplays in the field, but Hopkinton’s bats came through in a slugfest. After starting the season 0-5, the Hawks are on a four-game winning streak.

Coach’s quote: “Our defense was inconsistent and we had difficulty ending the innings when we should have. Conant is tough 1-9 in the lineup and giving them extra outs hurt us. They took advantage of our misplays and made this game a lot closer than we would have liked. I give my kids credit as they did not get down after a few errors and kept swinging away at the plate to make up for the runs we gave them. We were lucky our bats were so alive early today as Conant was not giving in, despite getting behind after the first few innings. We need to remember that we are capable of far better defense.” – Hopkinton’s Liz Kovar

Records: Hopkinton 4-5; Conant 3-7

Highlights: Hopkinton hit the ground running, taking a 9-0 lead after the first qurter, and a 14-1 lead at half. The Hawks’ defense pressed out and challenged the ball, causing turnovers on almost every Stevens possession and clearing the ball to its offense nicely. Stevens came up with some big defensive stops, but dominant possessions and creative playmaking made the difference on offense for the Hawks.

Coach’s quote: “We played a disciplined game from the first whistle to the last. Our ball control was on point and we capitalized well on opportunities. Everyone on the roster got meaningful playing time, and a couple of players got their first varsity goals.” – Hopkinton’s Deacon Blue
