Broncos rally for stunning victory over Pinkerton
Believe it or not, three high school games involving local teams were played outside on Monday, while everything else was postponed. It was a good day for Alvirne baseball and softball:
Alex Boulay’s infield pop in the bottom of the seventh was misplayed, allowing two runs to score to cap a five-run rally by the Broncos in a wild game.
Pinkerton had rallied from a 9-1 deficit to score seven in the top of the seventh to grab a 13-9 lead. But Ryan Santos’ triple started the big rally for Alvirne, which was the home team in Derry as the game, slated to be played at Alvirne, was moved due to field conditions in the abysmal weather.
Early on, Alvirne’s Evan Beals (three hits, double) and Jacob Hobart (two-run double) keyed the big Bronco lead. Overall Alvirne had 11 hits, led by freshman Jake Dufour’s four hits, and stole six bases (two each by Grady Hudson and Boulay).
Haley Peaslee went 2 for 3 with two triples and five RBIs as the Broncos gave April Eringis a win in her Alvirne coaching debut. Kaliana Secchiaroli played well defensively at third base today, and went 2-3 with two RBIs and a sacrifice bunt. Kiara Chase overcame nine walks and nine hits allowed (with two strikeouts) as the Broncos played well defensively. Alvirne hosts Concord on Wednesday.

The Titans had a tough day in the chill at Stellos Stadium, but Campbell Haller played well scoring two goals, while single tallies were by Kaylee Hubbard and Theresa Ellison. Kiley O’Brien also helped the Titan cause with nine ground ball pickups. North visits Manchester Central on Friday.
