in a strange turn of events, the Huskies who were stymied by Howell pitching ace Zach Loresch for 5 innings broke out in the 6 scoring three runs. RBI hits by Mike Creamer, Nick Santuccio, and Cory Nusbaum put the Huskies ahead. Starting pitcher, sophomore Adam Elliott, pitched 6 effective innings. The true test of mental fortitude came in the first when Howell had bases loaded and no one out with a run already in and Elliott shut the door right there allowing one more hit the rest of the game. Mike Creamer came on in the 7th to record his second save.
This was Matawan’s first MCT tournament win in many years as the Huskies do not regularly join this tournament due to scheduling problems. Colts Neck HS Saturday at 2pm is next for the Huskies.
