Granite State Warriors Elite Lacrosse Team Wins Bryant Bulldog Classic Tournament


first game of Sunday’s matches, the Warriors came out on fire, beating the NLAX A team by a score of 14-2. Going into the next game, the Warriors knew they had a great chance of receiving a bye in the championship round if they could win this contest. The Warriors did not let this opportunity slip by as they beat NESLL MA, 15-2. In the championship round that is only 30-minute games, the Warriors started off slow against the Primetime Penguins from Rhode Island. The Penguins played a very controlled game, keeping possession for the first eight minutes and then netting the first goal of the contest to make the score 1-0. After that, it was all Warriors as they peppered the Penguins’ goalie with shot after shot, finally putting one behind the outstanding goaltender of the Penguins at the 12-minute mark. It only took about another minute for the Warriors to take the lead 2-1 and then finish off the contest with a solid 4-1 win. Then, it was on to the championship game,

program, in their second year of existence, played at the Bryant Bulldog Classic Tournament over the July 3 weekend in Smithfield, RI. On Saturday, the Warriors came out flying, beating the NLAX team from Norwell, MA, by a score of 18-2. The boys from New Hampshire continued their dominating play against a team from the Seacoast area of New


Hampshire, the New England Natives, winning this contest by a 16-4 score. The last game of the day for Saturday ended in another convincing win, as they beat the New Hampshire Tomahawks team 18-2.


Going into Sunday’s matches, the Warriors knew they had to continue to win in order to make the championship round, as there were many solid teams from around the country. In the


where the Warriors knew they had their hands full with the Stickheads from West Islip, NY. The Stickheads had a very stingy defense, which had only allowed two goals the whole tournament. This game was all about defense as the contest was scoreless after 14 minutes of play. The Warriors finally scored at the 15-minute mark and added another goal to seal the victory with a 2-0 win and become the Bryant Bulldog Classic Champions. Congratulations to all


Babe Ruth Softball Crowns Three Champions


submitted by Carmine LoConte, President, Salem Softball The Salem Softball Girls’ Babe Ruth Recreation league finished


June 26 with the U10 Glory, U12 Heat, and Junior Force winning their respective championships. The U10 Glory defeated the U10 Bandits by a score of 3-0, and pitchers Brianna Marino and Brooke Murphy of the U10 Glory combined for a no hitter, while Niamh Walker also gave up no hits over three innings for the U10 runner-up Bandits in this ultimate pitcher’s duel. The U12 championship was not the same pitching duel as the


U10 championship, as the U12 Heat scored eight runs in the bottom of the final stanza to win the championship, 29-28, in a three-hour epic game, which concluded with a Sarah MacAskill two-run, walk-off double for the championship. The U12 Glory made it to the championship game by defeating the number- one and two seeds behind the pitching of Mikayla Pacy and the


hitting of Michelle “Big Papi” Ortiz, but strong bats of the U12 Heat’s Mikayla Ramsdell and MacAskill proved to be too much for the U12 Glory to overcome. In the Juniors’ championship, the Junior Force went out to a 7-0 lead in the first inning over the Junior Heat, only to be shut down by the strong relief pitching of Ashley Walbridge for the next four innings, which allowed the Junior Heat to tie the game up in the fifth inning behind the hitting of Joanna LoConte and Marisa Pellerin. The Junior Force then went ahead in the bottom of the sixth inning behind the base-running aggressiveness of Allyson LeFebvre’s steal of home. Amanda Cail pitched the final three innings for the Junior Force in picking up the victory, and was helped out in the final inning with a diving catch by shortstop Annan Walker that stopped any chances of another comeback by the Junior Heat, and the game ended with a 10-7 final score.
