OLD BRIDGE, NJ - The Bears struck first in the ballgame but the Knights managed to fight back and put runs up on the board. In the second inning Old Bridge took a 5-3 lead over East Brunswick and they held their lead for the rest of the game.

 

The East Brunswick Bears had Junior Michael Falco on the mound and a few costly walks and errors in the field allowed Old Bridge to put up runs in a hurry. Falco pitched five innings with two strikeouts and allowed five earned runs. Senior Evan Dekhayser came into relieve Falco and pitched one scoreless inning.

 

The Bears took an early lead in the second inning when Falco hit a double into right field and the next batter Junior Brad Edwards hit an RBI single. A few batters later, Senior Nick Martino ripped a double into center field scoring another run. EB put up three runs in the inning but the Knights answered back.

In the bottom of the second inning the Knights started off with back-to-back walks, which was then followed by a single to load up the bases. An error in the field allowed one run to score and the next batter hit a double into left field, which cleared the bases. This double gave the Knights a 4-3 lead over the Bears. The Knights continued to add on runs throughout the next few innings. Old Bridge was leading the Bears 10-3 entering the sixth inning.

 

In the top of the sixth inning Michael Falco came up to the plate and on the first pitch launched a fly ball over the right field fence to make the score 10-4. Falco had a great day at the plate going 2 for 3 with 1 RBI and 2 runs scored. Unfortunately, the Bears offense was not enough to make up for their defensive mistakes as they fall to the Old Bridge Knights 10-4.
