Some of you may have recorded the game to watch later today, so if you don’t want to know what happened, I suggest you stop reading now.
Southboro fell behind early against the undefeated Cumberland, RI team, and despite their best efforts were never able to catch back up. Cumberland won the game by a score of 15-5. The game was called in the bottom of the fourth inning due to the 10-run mercy rule. You can read all the details in the Worcester Telegram & Gazette.
Despite the loss, Southboro’s hopes of making the finals are still alive. The four teams with the best records will play a semi-final round on Thursday. Here’s how the standings are after today’s games.
Rhode Island (Cumberland): 4-0
Connecticut (Fairfield): 2-1
Massachusetts (Southborough): 1-2
Vermont (Shelburne): 1-2
New Hampshire (Portsmouth): 1-2
Maine (Bangor): 1-3
Southboro will face off against Fairfield, CT tomorrow at 1:00 pm in what will likely be a must-win game. The game will be broadcast on NESN. Vermont and New Hampshire also play tomorrow. Their game starts at 10:00 am.
