Sometimes, all that is needed for a team to generate a win is a standout performance by one key player. Taylor Robinson was that key player for Haverhill.

Despite playing some shaky defense, the Hillies topped Lynn English, 8-1, in the preliminary round of the Division 1 North Sectional.  Robinson led the way on the mound by tossing an 8-inning win on eight hits and five strikeouts. He also provided the bulk of the offense with a 3-run homer in the bottom of the third inning.

They've overcome shortstop Bobby Shirling's tender shoulder, a sun-blinded high pop that landed squarely in the mouth of second baseman Steve Lesiczka and more early-season errors than coach Chip Dunn would ever care to rehash.

Haverhill loses first game to Swampscott

Haverhill High found the usual friendly terrain at Haverhill Stadium a bit bumpy, committing four costly errors in a 9-4 non-league loss to Swampscott.

"They put it in play, and we kicked it," said Hillies coach Chip Dunn. "They hit it pretty well, and we didn't do a good job of stopping it, catching it or throwing it. I don't think our guy pitched badly at all."
