Port's season opener remains undecided

(Continued)

“(Stott) had big plays at third and North Reading’s second baseman had a great high school play which would have been the difference in the game,” Malenfant said. “We would have scored a run on that if it got through, but it didn’t. That’s the way the game is.”

With runners on second and third and nobody out, North Reading second baseman Shane Driscoll dove for a strong line drive. Making the catch, he flipped the ball backward to second base to record the double play and keep Newburyport from scoring.

One of the best opportunities the Clippers had came in the bottom of the ninth inning, as Travis O’Brien got on base with a single. Tom Isabel would then send a line drive into the outfield. O’Brien rounded second heading for third but was called out to end the game’s regulation.

“There were tight calls and tough calls, but that happens,” Malenfant said.

The two teams will look to settle the score and finally have an outcome within the next few days, weather permitting, of course.
