Little League Champs – contributed by Edward Kerrigan:
JBJ Construction continued its late season surge, defeating LCI Paper 9-4 in the Southborough Little League AAA championship game.
The team erupted for 15 hits, a season high. They got the scoring started with five runs in the top of the 2nd, three of them on a bases clearing triple by James McGrath. LCI got a run back in the bottom of the 3rd when Seamus O’Shea scored on an errant throw after reaching base on a double. Michael McEvoy got the crowd to its feet in the top of the 4th with a home run over the left field fence. LCI rallied for three runs in the last two innings but fell short in their comeback bid.
JBJ finished the regular season in last place, but they saved their best baseball for the playoffs, outscoring opponents 17-4 to take the title. The team would like to thank all the parents, coaches, umpires, sponsors and volunteers who made this fun season possible.
