The ConVal boys’ tennis team overcame both Coe-Brown and a band trip to win on Friday, 6-3, over the visiting Black Bears.

With much of the team performing at the Great East Music Festival, Cougars steppedup into higher spots in the lineup and performed admirably.

No. 1 Zach Kriebel won handily over Nick Sanderson, 8-2. In at the No. 4 spot, Jamison Coty won 8-3; Max Shumway was victorious at No. 5, 8-6, and David McKay took a win at No. 6, 8-4.

Kriebel teamed with MacLean Timmons for an 8-2 doubles win. ConVal’s senior, Andres Tourgee, picked up a win in the last match of his career, as he and Coty won at No. 2 doubles, 8-4.

On Thursday, ConVal had their whole team together to face Hollis-Brookline, but only Ben Kriebel could pull off a win. Kriebel battled Ben Zielinski to tiebreakers before uncorking a monster ace to put his Cavalier opponent away.

ConVal finished at 7-7, one win away from the last seed in Division II’s eight-team playoff bracket.

SOFTBALLConVal beats Cavs

ConVal got off to a patriotic start for Wednesday’s Operation Hat Trick game honoring veterans. Senior pitcher Lizzie Nute sang the national anthem before local veterans Tom Wood and Rich Lindsay threw out the first pitch.

ConVal gave up four runs to Hollis-Brookline in the first inning, but the Cougars struck back on a  two-run double by Natalia Hautanen in the bottom half of the inning, and then tied it in the third on singles by Hautanen and Shannon Allen.

In the fifth, Sarah Dauphinais led off with a single and was hit by the Hollis-Brookline catcher’s throw to first, which caromed out of play and sent Dauphinais to third. From there, Breanna Hutchinson plated her with a double. Hayley Cheviot would drive her in and ConVal had a 6-4 lead.

Rachyl Parslow added a two-run double in the sixth to extend the lead, and ConVal won it, 8-7.

Jaden Hubbard-Lemay started and went five innings; Nute closed it out.

 

WLC sweeps Farmingtonin doubleheader

The Warriors improved to 13-3 with a doubleheader sweep of Farmington on Friday. WLC took game one 16-1 behind four innings of two-hit ball from Lexi Balam with eight strikeouts. Sam Yurcak led the Warriors with four RBI as she, Janel Bachand and Brooke Lane each had two hits.

In game two, WLC scored eight runs in the third and won 9-0. Balam pitched again for the win, striking out ten. Bachand had three hits in the game.

The Warriors have a home game against Hopkinton (9-5) Tuesday at 4 p.m. The Hawks knocked off the Warriors 3-2 earlier in the season.

Mascenic 7, Bishop Brady 1

The Vikings were missing a starter due to a family obligation, but still beat the Green Giant 7-1 on Thursday.

Maddie Labrie struck out 14 over seven innings with four hits, a walk and no earned runs for the win.

Sam Bilodeau was 2-4 with a double and two RBI; Jordyn Babin went 2-4 with a triple and two RBI, and Braelyn Case (2-3) and Sydney Letters (1-3) drove in one run each.

Mascenic (14-1) has a tough stretch to end the season. The Vikings hosted undefeated Campbell Monday after press time. They host Hillsboro-Deering Tuesday at 4 p.m. and undefeated Newport Thursday at 4 p.m before traveling to Conant Friday at 4 p.m. to close the regular season.

BaseballSanborn 5, ConVal 2

Duncan Cahoon (3-4, 2B) and Connor Buffum (2-3, 2B) each drove in runs for ConVal.

Jack Plourde threw a complete game with no earned runs and three strikeouts, but ConVal made four errors on the day.

Hollis-Brookline 4, ConVal 3

On Wednesday, ConVal had a three-run lead over Hollis-Brookline before letting it slip away and losing in extra innings.

Hollis-Brookline reached on an error in the top of the 11th inning and took third on a passed ball before scoring the winning run on a sacrifice.

Manny Bowman (3-5), Tim Burgess (1-4, 2B) and Michael Gutwein (1-5) drove in ConVal’s runs.

Connor Buffum started and went five innings with seven strikeouts, allowing three earned. Casey Burgess went six innings in a marathon relief appearance and struck out three while allowing no earned runs.
