Python Baseball Gets Eliminated by Grizzlies
by Marc Ayotte The Pelham High School baseball team’s season came to an abrupt halt on Thursday, June 2, as they went down to defeat to Goffstown by a score of 8-0. The Pythons gallantly fought their way into the Division II playoffs with a clutch, late-season home win that put them at the number-15 seed in the tournament. As such, they traveled to Goffstown to play the number-two seed Grizzlies, owners of an impressive 14-3 regular season record. If not for the cohesiveness of the Python squad along with their
individual and collective determination, a shot at even making the playoffs would have ended after some of the close, difficult losses they incurred during the season. Despite the optimism rolling into the playoffs, there is very little defense against running into a buzzsaw. Goffstown finished the regular season riding an 11-game winning streak and were favored over the pesky Pythons, who finished their regular season at eight wins against eight losses. The Pelham bats were silenced by the outstanding pitching performance of Goffstown’s Ryan Smith. The senior Grizzly hurler fired a brilliant, three-hit shutout while fanning 13 Pythons along the way. Pelham pitching was roughed up principally by shortstop Jake Glauser and catcher Ryan Beal, who each had three RBIs to lead the home team attack. For PHS, the three hits were picked up by Nick Roussel, who recently returned to action from a broken hand injury; Bill Cann; and catcher Evan Sage, who was exceptional in the batter’s box all season long. Although the Pythons made an unexpected early exit from post-season play, head coach Matt Stone was pleased with his team’s effort and performance and looks forward to next season. “We had a special group of kids that worked extremely hard to get everything they earned this year. Everyone found a way to contribute in one way or another. That is what made this group of players so special. I am proud of their accomplishments and their coming from a 5-7 record to get to 8-8, and the first State Tournament bid we’ve had in some years. The seniors will be missed and we look forward to seeing what this special group of players can do next year,” he said.
Pelham Soccer Club’s U11 Boys Finish a Season Strong
submitted by David Beaudette, Pelham Soccer Club The boys’ U11 travel soccer team played two great games past weekend. They traveled two hours each day to play Claremont on Saturday and Hanover on Sunday. Both games were so well played by the Pelham boys, it would be unfair to single players out. They played together as a team in both games, scoring handfuls of goals and only allowed a single against. The one player that must be mentioned, though, is Ian Morgenstern. On Sunday, Ian played the second half of the game in net. He stopped at least two shots that made the other coaches look over to us in amazement, asking us how he did that. This weekend was the last time this team will play together,
as many of the boys are trying new things. Some of them have played with each other since they were in tot soccer. The U11 team represented the town well in their travels across the state. The players included AJ Caggianelli, Zach DeBay, Deven DeBay, Liam O’Connell, Victor Palazollo, Joe Moore, Joe Carney, Matt Diprizio, Aidan Donaghey, Ian Morgenstern, Manny Baisley, James Msaddi, and Darin Colarusso. Also, Max Odryna and Tyler Larson came and played with us from other teams and contributed greatly. We want to thank the parents for getting the boys to games that were sometimes two hours away or in the pelting, freezing rain. Without your dedication, there would not be a travel program. Finally, it was our distinct pleasure to have coached such a
wonderful bunch of athletes. “This group of boys will do great things in sports and in life,” commented Coaches Rick and Chris DeBay.
Hurricanes will advance into the NEAAU playoffs beginning June 10. “This has been a great season for us so far.
These are 12 players from different cities/towns comprised to make one special ball club. It’s been great to see these kids not only become ball players, but watch them all become good friends,” said Manager Kevin Toohey.
