would fall short to a talented Bishop Guertin squad, 14-4, and a tough Concord team, 8-6, later in the week.
Salem led 3-1 at the end of one quarter and 6-3 at halftime against North, and then answered with three goals to North’s four-goal effort over the course of the second half to secure the victory. Dylan Kyriakakis led the Devils with three goals while Rob Auer, Nick Harbilas, and Alex O’Neill all had two goals apiece. Brett Pittera led the team with two assists and Harbilas added one assist, as goalie Paul Ramey was solid in net with 13 saves. The Blue Devils then suffered their loss to Bishop Guertin on
Thursday, May 12, and received points from Auer (two goals, one assist), Harbilas (one goal), and Connor Lyons (one goal). Two days later, on Saturday, the Devils were edged by Concord, where Salem’s points were scored by John Peck (one goal), Auer (one goal), Pittera (two goals), Lyons (two goals, one assist), and Kyriakakis (one assist). Although the Devils took two losses at the back end of the home stand, they rebounded with a commanding, 16-7 victory at Manchester Memorial this past Monday, May 16. Those factoring in the Salem scoring were Harbilas (six goals, one assist), Auer (four goals, one assist), Lyons (two goals, four assists), O’Neill (two goals, one assist), Pittera (one goal, two assists), and Kyriakakis (one goal, two assists). Chad Livingston also made eight saves in goal, helping Salem push its record to 4-8 overall.

Pitcher Dan Peters looks to close out the inning with runners on against Alvirne in Friday’s away game
in the third inning and seven in the fourth to eventually mercy the Crusaders in five innings. Joe DiPalma led Salem with a big day at the plate, going 3 for 3 with a home run, five RBIs, and two runs scored.
Second baseman Matt Loguidice (2 for 4, 2 RBIs, 2 runs) was the only other Devil with a multi-hit game and Josh Treff (four walks, two stolen bases) led the team with three runs scored. Trevor Bouvier (1 for 3, three RBIs) and Mike Downing (1 for 3, two RBIs) also knocked in multiple runs for Salem. Meanwhile, Evan Breen tossed four innings, surrendering only one run on four hits to earn the win. He struck out four batters as well. The Blue Devils got a couple early runs against Alvirne, but really didn’t get their bats going until the last inning. The Blue Devils led 2-1 after five innings, but Alvirne scored two runs and took a 3-2 lead in the bottom of the sixth heading into the final frame.
Salem answered the call by exploding for six runs in the top half of the seventh, highlighted by a three-run homer off the bat of Treff (3 for 4, four RBIs, one run, two doubles) and a two- run round-tripper from Bouvier (2 for 3, two RBIs, two runs, triple). Mike Downing also had a productive day for Salem (3 for 4, two runs, triple), while Dan Morin (2 for 4, one run) was another Blue Devil to register multiple hits.
On the mound, Joe Morin earned the win for Salem. Morin gave up one run on one hit, while striking out two batters in two innings of work. Dan Peters, Breen, and Clayton Landers also threw for Salem during the game.
by Chris White The Salem softball team took two wins on the road last week at Manchester Memorial and Alvirne. The Blue Devils defeated Memorial 4-2 on Wednesday, May 11, and then beat Alvirne 8-2 the following Friday. The two wins upped Salem’s record to 12-1, good for second in the Division 1 standings currently.
Salem drew first blood against Memorial,
plating one run in opening inning, and then stayed on top of the Crusaders for the rest of the game. Nicole Gubellini had a successful day at the plate and on the mound to lead the Blue Devils. Gubellini went 3 for 4 with two home runs, three RBIs, and two runs scored while also tossing five strong innings to be the game’s winning pitcher. The Devils also got some run production from
Rachel Morrissey (3 for 4, RBI), Sarah Frahm (1 for 4, run scored), and Amanda Bickford (run scored).
Jade Morrison (2 for 4) and Stephanie Cabral(1 for 2) provided hits for the Devils’ offense as well. Once again, the Blue Devils built an early
advantage against Alvirne, as they led 4-0 after three innings and cruised to victory. For the second game in a row, Gubellini took the mound and earned the win for Salem, while she and her teammates thrived at the plate. Factoring in Salem’s run production were Stephanie Long (1 for 4, two RBIs, run scored), Samantha Cloutier (2 for 3, two runs scored), Sara Bracken (run scored), Hannah Latham (2 for 2, RBI, run scored), Frahm (1 for 4, two RBIs, run scored), Gubellini (2 for 4, RBI), Morrison (run scored), Cabral(RBI, run scored), and Morrissey (1 for 3, RBI).
