Thunderstorms wiped out Tuesday’s schedule, and rain in Southern New Hampshire caused the postponement of some of Wednesday’s games, meaning the regular season will now stretch into Sunday.
With under a week to go in the regular season of American Legion Senior baseball, only one of the eight spots in the state tournament has been claimed, and as many as 13 teams are still alive for the others.
Note: On June 10, the Bedford High School boys lacrosse team won its third straight Division II championship – and 61st consecutive game – by beating Goffstown 12-10. Bedford head coach Matt Guerard and players Dan Colella, Sam Stanton and Dakota Clark got together recently to discuss their season and the winning streak.
Dan Colella doesn’t remember too many specifics from his sophomore year of lacrosse at Bedford High School.
MILFORD - Dave Flurey had nothing extraordinary to say to Nolan Flynn when the Sweeney Post 2 coach went to the mound to talk to his pitcher during the fourth inning of Monday’s game.
MERRIMACK - Two baseball teams desperate for a win met Sunday at Merrimack High School.
Derry Post 9 and Merrimack Post 98 played like two such teams, as both used every player on the roster, including 10 pitchers, and both teams rallied in the late innings to take a lead.
HUDSON – There was no panic in the Hudson Post 48 baseball team Friday when Exeter Post 32 rallied to the game in the top of the seventh inning.
In fact, the big inning for Exeter seemed to light a fire under Hudson.
