Junior Daniel Hafey scores game tying run in bottom of the sixth


On Wednesday, the GHS baseball team beat Saugus High with a hard fought 10-6 win, through the excellent hitting and their timely defense. 

The Fishermen started the game hot at the plate and they continued off their great hitting all game long. Sophomore Zach Morris had an exceptional day at the plate with 3 RBI and Junior Daniel Hafey had two doubles and scored three runs. The GHS team’s speed continues to power their offense by stealing second and third multiple times throughout the game. Junior Jack Costanzo is a prime example, stealing second and third practically every time he was on base. 

Per usual the GHS defense had a great game. Senior Zach Abbott pitched a very good 6 and a half innings and Junior Tommy Elliot pitched a great inning and a half of relief. Both the infield and outfield had a good game as well. 

At the start of the 6th inning the Fishermen struggled, giving up 4 runs to Saugus. Yet this tiny hiccup did not stop the Fishermen. The team came in the bottom of the 6th looking to come back. Hafey had a strong hit for a double and scored from a hit by Senior Anthony Rizzo, tying the score 6-6. The energy from the 6th inning rally continued on with timely hitting and runs scored by Freshmen Emerson Marshall, Costanzo, Junior Brett Moore, and Abbott. The 6th inning finished with Gloucester leading 10-6. Elliot pitched the final inning by striking out the final batter to finish the game and secure the victory.

This terrific game by the Fishermen puts their record at 6-3. The team will be playing their next game at home against Danvers on Friday. During this game Gloucester will be celebrating their seniors
