A subdued celebration for Carey

North Reading coach earns 700th win on somber day

(Continued)

Malenfant experienced coaching against Pettingell and Carey as the Triton head coach from 1997 to 2006.

“Really, the one similarity is they compete very hard,” Malenfant said. “Obviously, when I was at Triton, it was the same type of thing with Frank. If we did a job against him, I was happy.”

North Reading senior pitcher Ryan McAuliffe made Carey’s landmark victory a formality yesterday, logging a complete-game four-hitter. He struck out 15, and never allowed Newburyport (0-2) to close a five-run second-inning deficit. Newburyport’s Connor Wile collected two hits.

With the exception of a short photo session outside the North Reading dugout following the victory, Carey’s victory did not seem all that different from any other mid-April road win for a 3-0 team over an 0-2 team. Of course, a coach needs to oversee a lot of anti-climactic road April victories throughout a career to get to 700 career wins.
