Eagles Hang On to Beat Hawks



HERMON — Delbert Beckwith pitched a complete game, scattering seven hits, as the Ellsworth Eagles downed the Hermon Hawks 5-3 on Friday in Hermon.

“It was a really exciting game with great defense on both sides,” said Ellsworth coach Dana Smith.

The Eagles jumped in front early with a run in the first inning as Andrew Austin and Cote Card walked and Austin scored on a botched pickoff attempt at second base.

Ellsworth added two more in the third when Austin walked, stole second and scored on a single by Card, and Card stole second and scored on a single by Kyle Haslam.

Hermon got a run in the fourth when Tyler Fournier singled and scored on a single by Braddock Deabay.

But the Eagles came up with the winning runs in the fifth.

Austin walked, stole second and scored on a double by Jordan Carter. Carter then moved to third on a single by Haslam and scored on a sacrifice fly by Thomas Sawyer.

The Hawks capped their scoring with two runs in the bottom of the fifth.

Zack Pond singled but was thrown out at home on a triple by Logan Trembley. Trembley scored on a single by Reid McGinley and Deabay doubled to score McGinley before the side was retired.
