Baseball

Troy Howard 11, Camden-Rockport 8th 3

At Belfast May 2, CRMS jumped to a three-run lead in the top of the first inning, only to go down 4-3 by the end of the opening stanza. Belfast continued to add to its advantage until the final stanza.

Brandon DeBrosky (3 strikeouts) and Zac Collins (strikeout) combined on the mound to go the distance, throwing three innings apiece for the Schooners. DeBrosky, Josh French, Gavin Boyd, Connor Donovan, Matt Morse and Nate Raye had a hit for the Schooners.

"Camden was set back through a miscommunication leading to a lineup discrepancy, leading to an out every time the 10th hitter spot came up in the lineup that killed some otherwise strong rallies," said Schooner coach Kevin Pierce. "Belfast pitched very well, and played solid defense, and showed up to play. Camden, while having some solid defense, lost focus and faded fast."

Additional information for the Lions was unavailable.
