LIVINGSTON, NJ — The No. 3 Livingston High School baseball team advances in the Greater Newark Tournament (GNT) after defeating No. 6 Montclair Kimberley Academy (MKA), 1-0, at home on Monday.

Lancers pitcher Ryan Cardona impressed on the mound with 12 strikeouts and one walk. With two outs in the sixth, Nick Cotugno doubled and Chris Senney drove in what would become the winning run.

“We needed every bit of Ryan Cardona on the mound today because [MKA’s] pitcher was very, very effective and really was able to control our bats up until the sixth inning,” said Ennis. “I thought it was a very well-played game, it was a tournament-type atmosphere at the Oval and both pitchers really dominated the game.”

He also noted that sophomore Senney has proved to be really strong at the plate, currently leading the team in RBIs with 16 on the season, and delivered once again under pressure on Monday with an RBI single.

The Lancers will take on West Orange in an independent game on Wednesday before taking on Montclair in the next round of the county tournament on Thursday.

“What went from of a pool of 16 teams is now down to eight, so it’s really a three-game tournament right now,” said Ennis. “Certainly the favorites are Millburn and Seton Hall, but there are some teams still left in this tournament that could possibly make some noise.”

Despite Livingston defeating Montclair in an extra-inning game earlier this season, Ennis said the Mounties are strong and looks forward to seeing them again this week.
