MEN’S COLLEGE LACROSSE
Endicott 13, Keene State 10: Colin Bannon and Harrison Cotter each scored three goals as the Gulls opened up Division 3 NCAA tournament play with a home victory over the Owls. Nick Pinciario of Beverly and Joshua Tordik each had two goals and two assists for Endicott (15-4), which also got single tallies from Kyle Weber, Jonathan Morgan and Jeremy Morgan. Cameron Bell came up huge in goal with 14 saves for the Gulls, who travel to Medford to face Tufts in second round NCAA play Saturday.
Peabody 8, Lynn Classical 0: Senior David Apostolides authored a no-hitter, fanning five while walked two with only one error behind him. He struck out the last two Classical hitters he faced and threw 91 pitches.“His change up, curve, two seamer and four seamer were all working. It was like a video game,” coach Mark Bettencourt said. “(David) was painting the plate today and he really mixed his pitches. Other than one batter, nothing was hit to the outfield.”Bettencourt said middle infielders Ryan Collins and Christian Morales were outstanding, and took a few hits away from Classical. Offensively, Peabody scored six with two out in the sixth on RBI from Bobby Tramandozzi, Tanner Moquin, Matt Correale and Kevin Lebel (two run double). Collins, Sean McGrath and Matt Gonick also drove in runs.
Cardinal Spellman 7, Bishop Fenwick 7: The Crusaders (6-7) gave up an early lead and fell under .500 for the season. Senior James Traversey and Matt Townsend each had a pair of hits and senior Tommy Parsons, who is normally a pitcher, recorded his first varsity hit.
Beverly 14, Revere 8: The Panthers (8-6) scored seven times in the fifth to break the game open. Nick Cotraro went 2-for-3 and Gavin Sparkman went 2-for-4 and scored twice. Sean Curtin had a hit and played outstanding defense and Ted Leathersich picked up the win with a solid relief pitching performance.
