With two out Andrew McLellan singled and Pellerin doubled resulting in a 1-1 contest. The game continued to see-saw until six walks during the 6 & 7 frames allowed the Blue Devils the edge needed in securing an 7-6 win in the bottom of the seventh when Pellerin scored the winning run. Andrew McLellan paced the Devils win with 2 singles, Finn had a triple, Collins double, and Pellerin a double. On the Dragon ledger Alex Morrison had two singles and Luke McDonald a triple.

At home against CAHS on Saturday Alex Morrison cranked a home run and two singles to key a 13 hit attack that carried the Dragons to victory in the first game of a doubleheader. In that game the Dragon’s right fielder, Ian Howland, had a serious leg injury and was transported to Ellsworth where he was successfully operated on – everyone is thinking of you Ian and wishing you a quick recovery and looking forward to have you back in school!
