Londonderry overcomes ugly first inning to beat Central 14-3
The opening frame of the 2019 season was not what the Lancers were looking for. Defensively the boys gave up 3 unearned runs on 3 errors to put themselves in a hole. Nolan Lincoln dominated in his first Varsity action though. He didn’t let that get to him as he cruised to a complete game (mercy rule shortened) 1 hitter while he trusted his teammates to do their part. Nolan was unflappable and really showed why the coaching staff is so excited about what he can bring to a D1 mound!
On offense the Lancers put up 7 hits on the day. The highlight was Nick Cote’s inside-the-park two run home run! 4 Lancers put up 2 rbi’s on a cold blustery day. It was good to see them settle down and fight when the pitcher they were facing was very good!
This was a good opening effort, still things to work on tomorrow! Dover at home on Friday!
