High School Baseball:
Haddonfield's Fourth Inning Enough to Defeat Sterling

The Colonial Conference is loaded with teams capable of capturing the title with a formable pitching staff and big time hitters. Two of those teams met in Haddonfield as the Bulldogs were hosting the Knights from Sterling High School. Haddonfield’s Andy Console would pick up the pitching decision in this game, as the Bulldogs would put together a six run rally in the bottom of the fourth inning. By posting their 8-4 win, Haddonfield handed Sterling their first defeat of this young baseball season.

Haddonfield took advantage of some early pitching problems by Sterling to manufacture their first two runs of the game in the second inning. Two innings later, Andy Meyer’s base hit scored the tying run and Sterling was right back in this game. Haddonfield had other thoughts on their mind, as they broke open a close game by scoring six runs in the bottom of the fourth inning. Console contributed to the hit attack stroking a double during the inning. With the win, Haddonfield increased their record to 3-1 while Sterling dropped their record to 3-1-1.
