Week #9: Holliston Senior Softball Wrap-Up: (thru 6/9)

by Ken Sawyers
June 12, 2019

Week 9:

Dalton rode the right arm of phenom P Dave Birmingham in a 15-8 win over Kampersal.  Kampy's jumped out to an early 5-0 lead leaving a flustered Birmingham alone with his thoughts in the dugout after the top half of the first.

Dalton Rd P Dave Birmingham sweating it out after a rough 1st inning.

 But the Dalton bats stayed hot and responded with a 10-run bottom half of the first which seemed to settle the husky pitcher down as he gave up just 4 hits and 1 earned run the rest of the way.  1B Jaime Ross led the offense with 4 hits and 4 RBI while OF Tim McDevitt had 3 hits and scored 4 times. The usually reliable Kampy defense went missing this game so fiery manager Tom Kampersal held an impromptu infield practice post game.  Sources tell me a team meeting this week is likely.

The 2019 soap opera that is South took down Anthony’s 14-9 behind rookie phenom P Greg Copeland’s arm and bat as he pitched a complete game giving up just 5 ER and went 5-5 with 3 RBI at the plate.  SS Jason Smith is now 2-0 as manager prompting some teammates to question whether P/Mgr Bryan Sweeney is needed at all since he was absent again this week attending his son’s HS graduation pool-party.

Sweeney in his pool while his teammates battle Anthony’s in a key ‘A’ match up. OF Stephen Lawless (not pictured) was also rumored to be at the party. No word if they’ll be welcomed back next week.

Chad Engel completed 22-29 passes for 297 yards and 3 TD’s as Braggville squeaked by Downtown 31-11.  OF’s Dan Kittredge and Chris Cordani each hit 2 HR’s while SS Matt Baker went yard as well.  Johnny Marsell capped the night with a grand slam in the 7th to stretch the lead to 20. 

Downtown P Mike Adams sought professional help after the beating he and his teammates took Sunday night against Braggville.

DYR shutout Jasper 5-0.  That is all.  Mudville stopped the Hood train with a 12-7 victory behind the arm of P Steve ‘the Gangster of Love’ Miller who had 2 key late-inning K’s to thwart Hood rallies.  Johnny Cognac and Jay Wyman delivered key RBI’s in the 5th and 6th to stretch the lead.  Long Distance Tire doubled up Lions 14-7 as OF Eric Brucato led the way with 4 hits and 5 RBI.

And, throw the records out when these 2 teams meet (you have to or you won’t watch), Queens edged Brentwood 12-11 as SS John Abucewicz singled in the winning run in the top of the 7th to cap off a 4-4 night.

SS John Abucewicz delivers game winning single in front of a packed house.

WEEK 10 Preview GAME OF THE WEEK: (4-1 for the yr on my picks)

 Kampersal (5-2) vs Downtown (3-4) @ Stoddard

Too many scenarios that could play out in this final week of the regular season to determine play-off match ups but Kampy’s needs a win and some help from other teams to get to the ‘A’ game.  So, that motivation should be enough to push them past a still shell-shocked Downtown club that is poised to lose its 3rd in a row.

Civics Sunday: Celebrate Holliston Honors 2019 Citizens of the Year

by Yvette Cain

Celebrate Holliston, a town fund-raising non-profit organization established in 1991, honors volunteers Bea Hait and Ken Henderson as its Citizens of the Year. It seems only logical since Celebrate Holliston donates its time, energy, and financial support to worthwhile town projects that it would seek out those among us who volunteer their time and energies to make our community a better place to live.
