CHS Softball Team Earns 17-10 Victory
The Chelsea High softball team put it all together to earn a 17-10 victory over Roxbury Prep recently.
“It was a good team win,” said CHS head coach Gena Restiano. “All of our players on the roster contributed. We had strong efforts from Hazel Martinez, who had three RBI; pitcher Julianna Hassel, who struck out 15 opponents, and Jaliene Artica, who contributed two RBI.”
Restiano and her crew are scheduled to play Medford today (Thursday) and will host Whitttier at Carter Park next Tuesday. They will wrap up their season next Thursday at Somerville.
CHS Baseball Team Falls to Tech Boston
The Chelsea High baseball team came up on the short end of a 15-3 decision at Tech Boston Academy on Friday.
Assistant coach Michael Lopez (stepping in at the helm for head coach Mike Lush) had to make a few changes in the CHS lineup, most notably at catcher, where Greandoll Oliva was called upon for the first time this season and turned in a fine job.
Chelsea threatened to get on the board in the top of the first when Elijah Rivera singled and stole second and third, but was caught stealing home.
CHS starting pitcher Elijah Rivera struck out the side in the bottom of the inning, but Tech nonetheless pushed across four runs thanks to two walks, an HBP, and a base hit.
Chelsea struck back in the second with three runs. Nazareth Aquino led off with a walk, stole second, and scored on an RBI-double by Xavier Santiago. Oliva then tripled to right field, scoring Santiago, and Greandoll himself sped home when the Tech right fielder overthrew a cut-off man.
In the bottom of the second inning Rivera struck two more out Tech hitters and the inning ended when a Tech Boston hitter tried to stretch a single into a double, but was thrown out by the Chelsea defense on a 7-5-4 relay.
In the Chelsea third, Yared Rodriguez singled and stole second, but was left stranded. Tech nicked Rivera for a run in the bottom of the frame to make it 5-3, but then broke the game open in the fourth thanks to a combination of some passed balls and errors.
Lush and his crew are scheduled to wrap up their season this week when they host Lynn Tech tomorrow (Friday) and Medford on Monday.
