THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – Friday, June 14, 2019 Page 9 Tide softball team ends season with loss to Woburn in tourney opener By Joe Mitchell T he Everett High School softball team unfortunately had a short stay in this year’s Division 1 North state tournament, when they lost to host Woburn last Friday, June 7, in a preliminary round game, 9-2. The Tide was the 19th seed after finishing up the regular season in the Northeastern Conference with a 12-8 record, while Woburn (13-7) – out of the competitive Middlesex League – was seeded 14th. Celeste Fuccillo turned in a complete game, six-inning effort in the circle, allowing 13 hits, two walks and eight earned runs. She whiffed two. The game started pretty well for the Everett girls. They scored twice in the top half of the first inning to take the early lead. Maddy Duraes began the game with a single, and Veronica Bento followed with a double before Duraes scored on a fielder’s choice by Maddy Smith. Ariana Garay then singled home Bento to account for the second tally, and as it turned out, Everett’s last run of the season. Woburn wasted little time to tie up the proceedings with two runs of its own in the home half of the first. They scored four more times in the second to take the Crimson Tide baseball team wraps up this season with a tourney berth Despite opening round loss to Chelmsford, Everett improves behind junior all-star catcher By Joe Mitchell C oach Joe Lento’s Everett Crimson Tide baseball team just managed to squeak into the Division 1 North state tournament with a 10-10 record. They ended up being the 13th seed in a 14-team field of competitors in Division 1. Once there, the Tide had to take on host Chelmsford (13-7), the fourth seed, in a firstround game last Friday, June 7, and the results weren’t pretty to the tune of 16-1. Chelmsford did win one more game against Malden Catholic in the North quarterfinals, 5-2, before losing to Lincoln-Sudbury by the narrowest of margins in the North Final Four, 5-4. The Warriors will now face Andover in Saturday’s sectional title game at Lowell’s Alumni Field, beginning at 6 p.m. But it’s all about the Tide baseball team and where they will go from here. But before they left TIDE | SEE PAGE 12 lead for good. They then added to the lead with a run in the fourth, fifth and sixth innings to seal the deal. However, the Tanners went on to lose to Medford (16-3), the third seed, in a first-round game the very next day, 7-4. But in the North quarterfinals, the Mustangs were blanked by Central Catholic, 9-0, on June 10. “We got the bat on the ball, but just hit it directly to the Woburn fielders most of the time,” said Everett coach Stacy Poste-Schiavo. “We had our ups and downs this season, but overall I’m still proud of all their accomplishments, both on and off the field.” The Tide should be just as good, if not better next year, when they begin play in the new Greater Boston League, because they are losing only one starter. “We can definitely pick up where we left off this year,” said Poste. Kaylee Nearen is the lone Everett representative on the Northeastern Conference North Division all-star team.
