Amesbury downs Notre Dame to reach regional semifinals

(Continued)

After that strong inning that made the score 8-2, Amesbury continued its relentless offensive attack with a three-run sixth.

With the win, Amesbury heads to the regional semifinals to face No. 10-seeded Lowell Catholic (14-8) tomorrow at 6:45 p.m. at Martin Field in Lowell.

The Indians have not only beaten their playoff opponents this year, but have blown them away. After securing a bye in the preliminary round as the tournament’s No. 6 seed, Amesbury has outscored its two tournament opponents by a score of 28-3. Lowell Catholic also earned a preliminary round bye and has outscored its first two opponents, Winthrop and Austin Prep, by a combined 8-1.

“I don’t know much about Lowell Catholic,” Perry said. “We don’t see them much. They beat Winthrop in the first round, who are decent in the North East Conference, so they must be good.”
