Lynbrook Sterling Optical Braves Win First Little League Game
The Reds had a balanced hitting attack led by Riley Siederman and Chris Benson. Robbie Rose made the defensive play of the game with a game ending unassisted double play. Jack Bambury and Kenny Dean led the way for the Jays.
Later in the week, the Reds lost a tough one to the Harbor Light Dodgers by a score of 10-9 on a walk off walk to John Resker. The banged up Reds couldn’t hang on after taking the lead in the top of the sixth inning on John Moran’s 3-run homer. Strong starting pitching by Jon Allcock and strong relief pitching by Jag Guidarelli locked up the win for the Dodgers. Liam Malsy was on base all three times.
In the Pee-Wee Girl’s division, the Rays were led by an offensive attack supplied by Mollie Abernathy, Beth Dunn, Katie Hughes, and Catherine Lunny. Defensive stars included Jackie Piccione, Olivia Stack and CeCe Agoglia.
In Pee-Wee Seniors, the Lynbrook Sterling Optical Braves notched their first win, thanks mostly to the pitching of Jack Mulally, Billy Reyes, and Daniel Green.
The Braves scored more than ten runs for the first time, with key offense from Leon Levy, Michael Light, Shawn O’Keefe, Connor Naus, and Jason Moore. Tyler Fillinger, Matthew Dyer, Brendan Connolly, and Corey Schwach
also had good games.
Green closed out the game pitching no-hit ball in the final two innings as he earned the team’s game ball.
