Fantastic finish

In what coach Steve Tisbert termed, "Probably the biggest win we've had this year," Andover responded to a tough 10th inning by scoring three runs in the bottom of the frame to upset Methuen, 4-3. After battling to a 1-1 deadlock through regulation, three errors plated two Methuen runs in the top of the 10th. Taylor Farris' two-run double tied the game for the Warriors and, with one out, Jordan Day's single brought home the game-winner. Cassandra Hunt struck out a season-high seven for the victory, getting good defensive help from catcher Shannon Tully, third baseman Day and center fielder Nicole Ericson.
