Londonderry upset in first round of playoffs
The promising second half of the season evaporated in the first round of the playoffs as #11 Keene upset the #6 Lancers in a 10-5 baseball game. Londonderry fought most of the game, attempting to overcome 6 errors, missed signs, and poor decisions all day. The game got away in the 6th when the normally strong bullpen gave up 4 quick runs.
It was an unexpected day at the park, but in the end the team just tightened up too much.
The offense was able to get the lead down to 1 a couple times, but couldn’t hold it in the top half of the inning. Ricky Perry scored 2 runs and drove in a run. Anthony Ferraro also scored a run and drove a run in, while playing stellar defense and shutting out Keene for the last two innings on the hill.
There is work to be done in the offseason, and we encourage all remaining in the program to work on their craft. This was a great group of seniors and we wish them well.
