“Harrisville is a very good offensive team they hit the ball very well both times we played them this year they are a tough team and they have tough pitching in the Sullivan boys. “
Coach Lucas Smith stated.
“We played very well defensively and hit the ball decently tonight but we remained aggressive on the base pathes which has been our key throughout the season. Harrisville is a very good team and tonight’s baseball game was a very good game to play and I’m sure everybody that watched it was exciting from the first inning to the bottom of the 7th”.
“This group of boys that I coached this year worked very hard all season and it showed we finished only losing two games all season both of them to Harrisville. It was a pleasure coaching this group of boys and I can’t wait to see what next season rings. This group of boys will be playing All Summer in my 15U team to continue their development for next year’s season,” Coach Smith added.
