Ryan O'Connor pitched a solid game allowing just two earned runs, but five walks burned the Nor'easters as three of the four runs came in off walks. McElroy was 2 for 4 with a double, Whitman (1 for 1) was on base three times with a run and an RBI, and Mike Doud was 1 for 3 with an RBI. Newburyport out-hit North Andover, but according to coach Tim Southall, could not string together enough hits in any single inning.
