Roxbury took an early lead in the game, entering the second inning up 3-0. The Gaels' scoring came off some basic run manufacturing; an error put Jared Schimenti on base, a sacrifice bunt by Brian Dachowski moved him to second. Then catcher Andy Axelson banged an RBI single.

Will Findlay and Michael Roumes also got on base with little drama. But the excitement level ratcheted up when Ryan DiTrolio blasted a double, sending home Axelson and Schimenti.

Pascack Valley answered with two runs in the second, when Roxbury scored none.

That was the end of the scoring in the game as both teams' pitchers bore down. Hard-throwing Pascack Valley pitcher Jordan Issackedes kept Roxbury from scoring any further runs.

June 10, 2018
