after Ferrara right fielder Paul O’Sullivan made a fine leaping catch, Gilmore singled to center, Limera singled to left and Nies looped an RBI single over short.

Tumulo bashed his first double off the center field fence for the Auto men in the fourth then Nick Piscopo yanked an RBI single down the first baseline, narrowing the score to 31, but the Sun matched the run in the bottom of the inning. Fischer hobbled a single over second base, Pennimpede pounded a single over third and Rusty Meyer whacked an RBI single to left.

In the fifth Auto man Dave Serido snagged a grounder, stepped on second for a force out and threw to first for a double play.

Ferrara’s crept closer to the Sun with a run in the sixth. Tumulo drilled his second double then scored on Phil Aiello’s single to right, but a big threerun Sun inning would immediately follow. Nies led off and pulverized his solo homer into oblivion, Tom Behr, Wirkus and Fischer all singled then Pennimpede jumped the score to 72 with his tworun single.

Piscopo ripped a double to right and scored on Petersen’s single into center for Ferrara’s in the seventh. Then the score tightened to 74 when Ferrara’s Paul Rubinetti doubled and scored on Tumulo’s single to center.

In the eighth, Paul O’Sullivan made his second outstanding leaping catch to bring Ferrara’s to the plate in the ninth. DiDario lined a single to left and Dave Serido slapped a twoout single upthemiddle. Mike Whalen stepped to the plate and rapped an RBI single to left but a slow roller to the pitcher resulted in the final out.

In the meantime, Montrose scored two runs in the first when Bill Swisher reached on an error, Romano ripped an RBI double off the screen in left and Jack Sullivan looped an RBI single into right. In the second Bob Swisher laid down his perfect bunt to score Dan Kennedy, who had doubled to center.

In the third, Montrose first baseman Jack Sullivan made a leaping catch of a throw from short to secure an out. In the bottom of the inning Schuten led off with his solo home run over the left field screen.

Willoughby reacted in the fourth with a threerun surge and were on the verge of breaking the game open until the Montrose infielders performed magic. Leading off, Gaito bounced a single past short, Russo followed with an RBI triple off the screen, Matt Maloney backed it up

with an RBI triple to deep center then scored when Bill Johnston reached first safely. With no men out, Montrose’s Romano made another fine catch behind second, Bill Swisher snared a line drive at third then snagged a grounder and threw it to first for the third out.

From the fourth inning until game’s end, only both teams’ defenses did the dazzling. Russo performed a sliding, rolling circus catch in center and left fielder Matt DePalma immediately followed with a magnificent sliding catch in the fourth. Willoughby shortstop Gaito initiated a double play in the fifth, then made a running catch in shallow center in the sixth. Bill Swisher concluded the game in fantastic fashion by making a leaping, twirling catch in the seventh.

Westfield Y Devilfish Will Hold Swimming Tryouts

The Westfield Y Swim Team will be holding tryouts for the 20002001 short course season on September 6 and 9. The Westfield Y offers a high quality multiteam program for all swimmers ages 618 who compete in both the Northern New Jersey YMCA Swim League and in New Jersey USA Swimming competitions.

Devilfish Head Coach Paul H. Casazza oversees a rising program that in his first year saw 16 team records broken. Last season’s undefeated Girls A team has moved up a division for the second consecutive year and the Girls B team will be returning as defending division champions. The Boys team will look to capitalize on its tremendous improvement and also will challenge for a divisional championship.

While the program’s goal is to de velop champion swimmers in all age

groups, the program’s success is not only measured in terms of championships, but also by personal improvement, both in and out of the water.

Tryouts for new swimmers will be conducted at the Westfield Y Wallace Pool on: Wednesday, September 6 and Saturday, September 9. Swimmers are required to attend only one session and if previously on a competitive team should supply a list of their best times.

Swimmers should have a good understanding of the four competitive strokes. Eight and under aged swimmers must be able to complete 25 yards of Freestyle and Backstroke. Nine and above aged swimmers must be able to swim two laps of all four competitive strokes.

For registration times and more information, please call Paul Casazza on (908) 2332700, Extension No. 253. PUBLIC NOTICE
