HANSEN HAMMERS 4 RBI; BUSSICULO WINS 3RD

G. L. Highlander Nine Gun Down Union Farmers, 12-7

By FRED LECOMTE

Specially Written for The Westfield Leader and The Times

Sophomore pitcher Dan Bussiculo carried a satisfied grin on his face after bringing down Group 4 powerhouse Union 12-7 in Union on April 15. The Highlanders blasted the Farmers with homers from Hank Hansen, Mark Cantagallo and Bobby Phillips.

Union struck with two runs in the first inning. Leadoff hitter Craig Badger reached first on an error, then Kevin McCarthy whacked his third home run of the season.

In the top of the second, Hansen hit a triple over the center fielder’s head.

Sophomore Pete Caggiano walked and Jason Guidicipietro followed with a single up the middle to score Hansen. Bussiculo held Union to one costly hit in the bottom of the second, a solo home run by first baseman Rob Sakowski to take a 3-1 lead.

Highlander Assistant Coach Chris Roof noted, “We came in here very relaxed looking forward to playing a good team and we’re going to be swinging those bats.”

Those bats came alive in the top of the third when Mark Cantagallo reached first on a walk while twin brother Eric drilled a sizzler down the third baseline. Hansen stepped to

the plate and blasted his towering three-run homer deep into center field to give the Highlanders a 4-3 lead.

In the bottom of the third, Farmer shortstop Henry Hahn ripped a double into right and Jason Perreira tapped an RBI single to tie the score. The Highlanders regained the lead in the fourth, scoring a run after Chris Butler had a bunt single, then Mark Cantagallo lined an RBI single up the middle.

The Farmers were quickly retired in the fourth as a hot shot directed to Mark Cantagallo was relayed quickly to Terence Reilly covering second, who threw to Caggiano at first for a double play. Both teams were held scoreless in the fifth, with both pitchers allowing just one hit each.

The game took a dramatic turn in the top of the sixth as the Highlanders exploded with an offensive barrage that rocked the Farmers for five runs. Left fielder Guidicipietro reached first on an error, Butler walked, then Reilly beat out an infield single while Guidicipietro and Butler scored. Hansen stepped up to the plate and poked an RBI single and Derrick Writenour followed with an RBI single. The Highlanders extended their lead to 10-4 by scoring one more run via several errors by the Farmers.

Bussiculo handed over the ball to reliever Reilly who shut the door on the Farmers in the sixth allowing just one run on an error and a hit while striking out two. The seventh inning proved to be prosperous for the Highlanders as Phillips and Mark Cantagallo treated themselves with back-to-back solo homers.

Union’s Andrew Hahn blasted a two-run homer into center field to the finalize the scoring.

Bussiculo, who picked up the win, stated, “Pitching against a good Group 4 school like Union, I came in hoping to hit the corners well, and I did. My coaches show a lot of confidence in me. Also, the way our offense were swinging their bats, made this game a memorable on for me.”

JULIA GATES FLICKS IN 4 GOALS

Lady Blue Devils Rip Royal Laxers, 13-9

The Westfield girls’ lacrosse team met Oak Knoll in Westfield on April 14 and came up with a 13-9 victory. Julia Gates led the Blue Devils with four goals.

Following what seems to be their signature way of play, The Blue Devils took the lead within the first minute as attack wing Morgan Lang hit first home Kelsey Ill whose shot found the back of the net. Oak Knoll responded 60 seconds later as their high scorer Leigh Sloanaker scored the first of her six goals to tie, and less than a minute later added her second.

Kelsey Ill then assisted center Gates to tie, only to have Sloanaker put Oak Knoll ahead by two over the next four minutes. Westfield regrouped after a time out and Jen Korecky from her wing position assisted Lang and Kristen Salmond to knot the game once again.

Marina Powell came off the bench with 10 minutes left in the first half and drove the crease twice and Lang added another to give the Lady Devils the lead for good. The half ended 7-6 with Westfield having the slight edge.

Westfield took advantage of the 10 minute break and came on strong following the second half draw. Gates scored twice from a free start and on a beautiful assist from Salmond.

Salmond then took the draw and raced 50 yards for the next score.

At 10-6 with 20 minutes left, defensive wing Aubrey McGovern took over. Her strong defensive play held Sloanaker in check while her offensive instincts had her race from midfield to score three consecutive goals while assisting on another score. McGovern took advantage of her tiring defender knowing she was backed up by the strong play of Donna Schaller and Lauren Mattes. These two ladies shut down the strong Royals charge and held them scoreless for the first 18 minutes of the second half.

Oak Knoll finally scored but time ran out to give Westfield their first win. Libby Schundler enjoyed another fine game in goal as she turned back nine shots on goal.
