Goffstown Legion bounced from state tournament
Goffstown was eliminated from the double-elimination tournament after losing twice Saturday at Concord's Memorial Field. Nashua beat Goffstown 9-5 in the morning, and Laconia posted an 11-1 victory over Goffstown in Saturday's third game.
Goffstown, the No. 2 seed from District A, committed six errors in the loss to Laconia and completed its season with an 8-8 record.
Goffstown had to play the eighth inning with an injured player (Tyler Keim) in right field. Keim was pitching, but when he was removed because of the injury Goffstown had no substitutes available. Legion plays by Major League Baseball rules, which requires teams to have nine players in the field.
"We gave Nashua our best shot and they were just a better team," Lamy said. "I think the score indicates how things went in the second game."
Sunday's schedule features Rochester against Nashua at 9 a.m., Lebanon against Concord at noon; Laconia against the Rochester/Nashua loser at 4 p.m.; and the Derry/Londonderry winner against the Lebanon/Concord loser at 7.
Nashua 9, Goffstown 5
Center fielder Tim Riehl had three hits for Goffstown, which received two-hit performances from Brendan Hall, Tyler Perron and Ryan Thompson.
Concord 2, Londonderry 1
Concord made the most of its two hits - singles by Shane St. Onge and Brandon Smith - to win its tournament opener.
Infielder Austin Marino had three hits for Londonderry, which scored its only run in the top of the ninth.
