Lynnfield Blue 18A Defeat Revere

Losing Streak Ends with 12-6 Win

The Lynnfield Blue 18A team broke open a tight game, scoring six runs in their final two at bats to earn a 12-6 victory over visiting Revere last night at LHS. Hayley O'Brien earned the win in the circle, allowing five runs (one earned) over five solid innings. Abbie Berry closed the game for the Blue, yielding one run and finishing the game with a perfect seventh.

Revere got off to a good start when Lynnfield native Chloe Shapleigh ripped a long homer to right field leading off the game. The Blue battled back in the bottom half of the first, scoring five times with the help of four walks and the first of Kathleen Hamm's two hits. Sarah Tobin, Taylor Tringali and Kelly Dillon scored, as did O'Brien and Hamm.

Revere scored twice in the second after two were out, but Lynnfield opened the lead to 6-3 when Alex Ross walked and stole her way to third, before scoring on a wild pitch. 

Revere picked up two more runs in the third to tighten the game to 6-5. The visitors tried to put the tying run in scoring position with two outs, but catcher Allie Wing fired a strike and shortstop Rachel Badger applied a quick tag to end the threat.

It stayed that way until the bottom of the fifth when the hosts scored three times. After Anissa Petrone reached on an error, hits by Berry (double), Lucy Madden and Leigh Guerra made it 9-5.

Lynnfield scored three more times in the sixth. Hamm smashed a single down the left field line and Wing walked. Singles by Kendyl LaConte, Ross and Berry helped complete the scoring.

Wing threw out two runners at second base in her five innings behind the dish and Badger and Tringali sparkled in the field at short and third, respectively.

Lynnfield is 1-5, though their five losses have come to teams with a combined record of 22-4. The Blue return to action with a home game at LHS on Monday.

Close Losses Continue for Lynnfield Teams

All Four Teams Lose Close Battles

The four Lynnfield Summer Teams battled to the finish in games this week, but continued their winless ways.

On Monday, the 18A team fell to 0-5 with its second straight close loss to perennial Middle Essex powerhouse Newton, 7-3. Lynnfield had the bases loaded in the bottom of the seventh, but couldn't rally. Hayley O'Brien was strong again in the circle and Kendyl LaConte had two hits. Taylor Tringali and Sarah Tobin showed some baserunning flash to score two of the Lynnfield runs.

The team's five losses have come against the top four teams in the 18A standings.

On Tuesday, the 14B team stood tied, 11-11, with Everett at LHS. But Everett scored three runs in the top half of the final frame, then shut down the hosts in the bottom half with the tying run on base. Lauren Harrison had two long hits for Lynnfield and Sam Lebruska pitched and hit well for the hosts.

Wednesday saw the 12B team drop a 19-16 decision in a slugfest at LHS. 

The U10 squad lost twice this week, including a well-played 11-4 affair on Monday.

The 18A's host Revere tonight at the high school while the 14B and 12B team travel to Concord-Carlisle and Lynn, respectively.

Great Fun at LGS Banquet

The Isotopes, pictured here at Prince Pizza following the league banquet, reached the playoff semifinals

 

Banquet a Hit

Over 100 players, coaches and parents turned out to enjoy food and each other's company on Monday night, June 22, at Prince Pizza. Every player received a Lynnfield Girls Softball t-shirt and 14 graduating 8th graders took home a special trophy.

The event capped off another excellent season for the league. It was also a transitional year as we joined the Essex County Women's Softball League after having been an in-town league for much or all of our existence. The LGS also welcomed players from grades 2-4 for the first time, and they played (and played well) in the ECWSL's Farm League.

We can't wait for next year and bigger and better things.
