Windham loses final 5-2 By David Field

BETHEL-Already clinching the Zone 3 regular season first place spot, Windham took a long drive to play a game that meant nothing in the standings and lost to Locke Mills. Windham was missing several key players which could have made a difference in the outcome of this game.

In the first, Calvin Field led off with a single and stole second. He was driven in by Joey Francoeur to give Windham the early lead. Windham held Locke Mills scoreless for four innings as the Francoeur brothers pitched a combined four innings and allowed two hits.

Windham hit the board again in the fourth as Joey Francoeur again reached base on a solid triple. Tanner Laberge drove him in with a solid double. Windham’s scoring would cease after this.

Tanner Laberge took the hill in the fifth and the Locke Mills team took advantage. The first run was generated by a walk that advanced on stealing and an error by catcher Spencer Hodge. Then, Locke Mills just lit up Laberge and hit the ball where they wanted and generated two more runs to take the lead. In the fifth, the Windham team struggle at the plate and Locke Mills continued their hitting. They managed another two runs to seal the deal for the final game. That win earned Locke Mills a tie for sixth place in Zone 3 and gave them an opportunity to play on Saturday to enter the tournament.

Windham held on to first place and played on Sunday based on the winner of Saturday’s elimination game(s).
