The week didn’t start the way the Eagles had hoped, but it certainly ended on a higher note than anyone could have imagined! After losing what could have been a demoralizing game at Rutherford on Monday, the team was 1-3 entering a tough stretch of games vs. Glen Rock and undefeated Hawthorne on Tuesday and Wednesday, respectively. It took all seven innings to beat GR on a bases loaded walk-off RBI walk by Adam Dykstra. The key play of the game was a leadoff pinch hit by Josh Groenewal in the eighth inning. Josh Haddad pitched masterfully in a complete game, eight inning performance in which he only allowed one run. Not to be outdone was Matt Sorrentino, who went on to earn his first victory of the year in a complete game performance of his own. The Bears of Hawthorne entered the game in first place of the division at 5-0, but the Eagles were equal to the task . In the bottom of the seventh inning, after a see-saw battle, the Eagles won the game on an RBI single by sophomore catcher Ben Boonstra. The line drive plated John Onufer who scored three runs in the game, including a solo home run. The unsung hero of the game was Devon Hulsebos, who successfully sacrificed a runner into scoring position not once, but twice. The runner scored both times, proving to be the difference in the game. After the senior trip, the team will play Pompton Lakes and Garfield in the coming week.
