In Saugerties at Lorenz Field on May 30
Chester 11, Webutuck 5
Chester was ahead of Webutuck 5-2 when Hambletonian pitcher Colin Marco gave up a three-run homer to Webutuck’s LeShawn Thrasher to tie the score at five. However, that would be all the runs
Marco would surrender for the rest of the game. Chester opened up for six more runs thanks to a 3-for-5 day from catcher Kyle Marco who had a double and 2 RBIs. Senior right fielder Zack Munderville added a 2-run double in Chester’s four-run sixth inning. Chester senior third baseman Brandon Sadlier boasted Section IX titles in three sports this year in baseball, football and basketball.
” I’m proud of these guys,” said Chester head coach Mike Doucette. “They have been loose for about three weeks now. In the beginning of the season it was all about stats. It’s not about that now. They are all about the team.”
Chester (18-4) plays Section I champion Tuckahoe (17-4) in the opening round of the state tournament on Friday at 3 p.m. at Cantine Field in Saugerties. The winner of that game hosts Southold, the Section XI champion, in a state quarterfinal on Saturday.
