ROXBURY, NJ – It’s on to the state semifinals for the Roxbury High School baseball team which didn’t let a 2-run West Essex homer in the first inning stop it from winning the May 26 quarter-final game.

The Gaels, who won 8-4, didn’t take long to respond. After coming back quickly with three runs of its own to end the inning up 3-2, Roxbury kept up the pressure as starting pitcher Darren Wyse held down the fort on the mound.

He threw 57 pitches before being relieved by Michael Roumes and Thomas Darling.

Roxbury's offense was led by multi-hit performances from Andy Axelson, Will Findlay, Dan Hankowski and Roumes. Worth noting: Doubles by Axelson and Hankowski and a triple by Danna drove in key runs for the Gaels.

The West Essex game was Roxbury's final home game of the year. The team, now 17-8, advances to a semifinal game on May 30.
