"It was just one of those games," Westport/Keene co-head coach Don Markwica said after the game. "we came out a little tight and once we got settled in, we needed the bats to heat up and it never happened."
David Quaglietta broke up Bissonette's no-hit bid with one out in the fifth inning with a single that as just out of the reach of Osier at second base. James Bell, who had reached twice on errors, had the Beagles other hit on a sharp line drive down the left field line in the sixth.
The Beagles put six runners into scoring position, scoring one (Bell) on a balk call in the fourth inning. The team was 0-for-8 with four strikeouts when runners were in scoring position, while Chazy was 3-for-10, advancing 10 runners to second base or further.
"We just never got the big hit," Markwica said. "We had the chances, but never got the hit that we needed."
Earl started and worked through the first two batters in the third, allowing five runs (three earned) on three hits and three walks while striking out one. Bell worked the final four innings, allowing no runs on one hit, walking two and striking out five.
Class B final
PHS 6, Beekmantown 1
The Eagles started out strong, but the Hornets' bats eventually were able to get the runs needed to earn the Class B title June 1.
Beekmantown jumped out to a 1-0 lead after the top of the first inning, with Luke Weaver scoring when Logan Recor reached on an error.
The Eagles held the lead until the bottom of the third inning, when Tommy Curran walked to lead off the inning and C.J. Worley and Robbie Knowles singled to load the bases.
The Eagles then got the first out of the inning when Curran was forced at home plate by a drawn in infield, but Joe Tolosky then connected on a two-run single and LaTulipe scored when Anthony Porcelli reached on an error to give the Hornets a 3-1 lead.
