OLD SILVER LAKE LEAGUE Updated 4/1/2013

HGSL announces the forming of the

 "Old Silver Lake League"

       HGSL is pleased to announce that it's Spring In-Town League will now be part of the newly formed "Old Silver Lake League" for it's Minor, Junior and Senior Divisions.  Effective this year Pembroke, Hanson & Carver will be joining Halifax and Kingston in this newly formed league.

          We feel that this is a great opportunity for our players to experience "travel" ball with neighboring towns on a recreation league level. Also, declining player enrollment no longer allows us to be able to field enough teams in each division to keep our games in-town only. The other OSL teams are in the same situation.

        Each team will still play at least half of it's game at their Home field, keeping travel at a minumum.

12U Babe Ruth New England REgional Champs! Updated 8/29/2011

12A HURRICANES ARE

NEW ENGLAND REGIONAL CHAMPIONS !!

           

The Halifax 12A Hurricanes continued on their tremendous roll this past weekend  as the girls traveled to Pittsfield, MA to take on the champions of New Hampshire, Vermont, Connecticut and Maine. Despite having to come out of the loser's bracket and play 3 games in a row in the heat, the team never gave up and took the title.

In game 1 of pool play on Friday afternoon the girls were paced by Shannon Grindle (3-3, 3 RBI and Maddy Barone (2-3, HR 2 RBI) in defeating Rochester, NH 5-0. The Czarniak sisters, Libby & Maggie, made big defensive plays to preserve the shutout.

          In game 2 on Friday evening, the girls fell behind quickly 3-0 to NewTown, Connecticut, rallied late, but it was not enough as they fell 3-2. Lea Mason pitched 3 strong innings, catcher Emily Critch threw out 2 runners stealing & Julia Maker made a big catch in left field.

        On Saturday morning the girls took out their game 2 frustrations by routing Vermont 13-0 in 4 inning slaughter-rule. Lea Mason pitched the shutout, Libby C drove in 3 runs, Olivia Macomber went 3-3, Rebecca Hapgood added an RBI hit and Barone hit for the cycle w/ 5 RBI. At the end of the pool play the girls were the 2 seed in their bracket which earned them the right to advance to the final four and begin Double elimination play.

       The girls began the elimination round vs Litchfield, NH. But too much time in the pool and on the mountain led to a tired squad squandering an 8-2 4th inning lead and losing 11-10 on a walk-off 3 run home run. However this may have been the wake-up call the girls needed. On the last game of Saturday, the Hurricanes faced Stamford, CT, knowing that their next loss would mean elimination. The girls responded by jumping out to a quick 3-0 lead with Ari Levenson (3 RBI) and Leah Mackiewicz (3 Runs) leading the charge.  Mason pitched 4 innings of 1-run ball and the girls rolled to a 12-1 slaughter-rule victory.

          Sunday morning found Halifax as one of only three teams remaining along with Litchfield, NH and Newtown, CT, unfortunately the two teams that had defeated them earlier in the tourney. At 9;30am the girls made quick work of Litchfield, eliminating them with an 8-2 win. Madi Gillen had a big triple and several big defensive plays in RF, while Mackiewicz had 3 hits and scored 2 runs. Maker put the game away in the 5th inning with a 2-run double.

          Next up was undefeated Newtown, CT. Barone & Mason combined to keep the Newtown hitters off balance, allowing only 3 baserunners and one unearned run in the 5-1 victory. Grindle knocked in two runs, Libby C had two bunt hits and Maggie C scored a big run. Macomber was a rock behind the plate.

          The girls now had to defeat Newtown one last time in the "IF" game. The game began as a pitcher's duel between Barone and NewTown's ace Lauren. In the top of the third inning Newtown scratched out an unearned run to go up 1-0. In the bottom of the 4th Levenson singled, stole second and a batter later Maker drove her in with a long double down the left field line, knotting the score at 1-1. In the 5th inning Grindle stroked a one-out double. One batter later, Levenson stepped to the plate with a chance to be the hero. After fouling off a few pitches, she calmly dumped a short fly ball behind 1st base that landed on the foul line for a double, driving in Grindle with the go-ahead and tourney clinching run. Newtown had one last at bat but Barone (no-hitter, 10 K's) shut the door 1-2-3 and the girls were New England Regional Champions!

         The girls were met by a police and fire truck escort back into town after the tournament, ending at the Fire Station where they were greeted by hundreds of friends & supporters. The Hurricanes now move onto the Babe Ruth Softball World Series August 4-9 in Annaloosha, Alabama. Team parents are coordinating fundraisers to help with the extensive travel and lodging costs. If you would like to make a donation of any kind please e-mail Jen @ skunkcabbage@comcast.net

OFF TO ALABAMA !!




12U Babe Ruth State CHAMPIONS !! Updated 7/15/2011

HALIFAX 12A HURRICANES ARE 2011 BABE RUTH  STATE CHAMPIONS !!

Back row- Coach Pat Macomber, Coach Pete Barone, Madi Gillen, Shannon Grindle, Coach Rich Critch, Maggie Czarniak, Olivia Macomber, Libby Czarniak, Coach Jamie Mason. front row - Maddy Barone, Ari Levenson, Lea Mason, Leah Mackiewicz, Cassie Murphy, Emily Critch.

  The Halifax Hurricanes 12A Girls Softball All-Star team fought through the heat and some very strong competition during the EMass District Tourney this past weekend at the Ginn Field  Complex in Winchester, MA. The team is in it's 2nd year chartered in the Babe Ruth Softball program, which is the sister program of Cal Ripken Baseball. The team follows the success of last year's 14A team that captured the state title, winning the tournament held in Kingston.
           On Friday night, in the opening game of the tourney the girls roared out to a 14-0 lead in the first inning and went on the defeat Randolph 26-6 in a 4 inning mercy rule shortened game. Olivia Macomber and Lea Mason split the game on the hill for Halifax, while Emily Critch had 4 had 4 hits and 7 RBI. Sparkplug Leah Mackiewicz was on base for all 5 at bats and scored 5 times. Ari Levenson (9 for 13 in the tourney, with 8 runs) knocked in 5 runs.        

   On Saturday the girls took on Burlington and again were able to achieve a mercy-rule victory, this time the final score was 10-0. Lea Mason pitched 4 scoreless innings and Shannon Grindle had 3 hits and 3 RBI. Libby Czarniak chipped in with two bunt hits and great defense at shortstop. Olivia Macomber was a rock behind the plate. 

         Later on Saturday, the girls faced SSSL rival Raynham and this game lived up to it's billing of showcasing two of the top 12U girls Softball teams in the area. Halifax ace Maddy Barone shut down Raynham tossing a complete game 1-hit shutout with 8 K's. Madi Gillen slammed a long double and Maggie Czarniak preserved the 2-0 win with a spectacular catch in leftfield to end the game.     

    By late Sunday Revere was the only opponent remaining in the tournament, having fought their way through the loser's bracket. But they would have to beat the Hurricanes twice to take the title. In the 5pm game the Hurricanes had their only bad inning of the tourney, making several errors in the 2nd inning leading to eight Revere runs. Lea Mason was the victim of non support on the hill. Cassie Murphy returned from vacation to get on base 3 times, but despite a late inning comeback led by Grindle and Levenson (3 hits each) the girls ran out of gas 10-6.
                   So the "If" game was scheduled for Monday night at 6:00pm, with the winner to be crowned State Champion. Revere jumped out to 1-0 lead in the bottom of the first inning on a hit batter, stolen base and what would turn out to be their one and only hit of the game. In the bottom of the 2nd the Hurricanes exploded for 7 runs highlighted by run-scoring hits by Mackiewicz, Critch and Levenson. In the 3rd, Gillen slammed a run scoring single and Barone helped her own cause with a two-run double. Mason and LIbby Czarniak produced two more runs in the 4th, running the score to 11-1. This was more than enough for Barone, who settled down after the first inning to strike out 8 of the next 10 batters to shut the door. The game was called after 4 innings due to the mercy rule and the girls were STATE CHAMPIONS !
    

      This was a total team accomplishment with each player contributing in various ways and supporting each other. The girls now move onto the New England Regional Tournament in Pittfield, MA July 22-24 They will be competing against the Connecticut, Maine, Rhode Island, Vermont & New Hampshire champions.

14A HURRICANES ARE BABE RUTH STATE CHAMPS Updated 8/23/2010

14A HURRICANES ARE EASTERN MASS 

      BABE RUTH STATE CHAMPIONS !!

             The Halifax Hurricanes 14A Girls Softball All-Star team fought through the heat and some very strong competition to sweep through the EMass District Tourney this past weekend at the Opachinski Complex in Kingston, MA. The team is in it's first year chartered in the Babe Ruth Softball program, which is the sister program of Cal Ripken Baseball.
           On Friday night, in the opening game of the tourney under the bright lights, the girls shut down Revere 6-0. Alex Barone tossed a no-hitter and allowed only 3 baserunners. Abby Ford & Kayla Cadigan sparked the offense reaching base three times each and Jenny O'Kelly had 2 hits and 2 RBI. Caitlin Woodman was a rock behind the plate and Jessica Harris had two hits and a fantastic defense play in right field, ending the game by catching a line drive and alertly doubling a Revere runner off of first base to end the game.
          On Saturday afternoon the girls faced the very impressive Lynn Lightning team. Lynn jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the top of the 3rd inning after some temporarily sloppy play by the Hurricanes. In the bottom of the 3rd and 5th innings, the Hurricanes scored single runs in identical fashion as table-setter Abby Carey reached base with two outs, stole 2nd and Barone knocked her in. The score stayed the same into the 7th inning, Halifax aided by big defensive plays by Julia Balerna, Mikayla Sargent & Jill McDonald. In the bottom of the 7th, still down 3-2, the rally shirts came out. With one out Ford dropped down a beautiful bunt to get the tying run on base. After a walk to Barone, a double steal put runners at 2nd & 3rd, with clean up hitter Paige Hill at the plate. As the catcher called for an intentional walk, Lynn's pitcher uncorked a wild pitch and Ford scampered home with tying run. After a long team conference on the mound, the Lynn staff decided to pitch to Hill. Big mistake, as she drove the first pitch down the left field line plating Barone easily from 3rd for the walk-off win.
         Next the team had a meeting with a very talented, host Kingston squad. A great, friendly rivalry as most of the girls on both teams are classmates at Silver Lake High School. Kingston jumped out to a quick 1-0 lead as their lead-off batter singled and scored a few batters later. The Hurricanes were definitely showing signs of fatigue in the mid 90's heat and 2nd game in a row, as they went down quickly in the first two innings. However in the top of the 3rd, Woodman reached base, Carey walked and again Ford laid down a great bunt to load the bases with one out. Barone, Hill & McDonald then lined 3 consecutive run scoring hits to end the inning with a 3-1 lead. This rally ignited the girls and was all Barone needed on the hill as she scattered 3 baserunners over the final 4 scoreless innings. In the top of the 7th Sargent and Balerna struck for back-to-back RBI singles and the Hurricanes remained in the winner's bracket 7-1.
         Sunday brought a rematch with the same Lynn squad they faced yesterday, who had fought through the losers bracket to reach the Final. The teams traded runs in the first inning. In the top of the 3rd the Hurricanes struck for two quick runs as Woodman led off with a walk. Pinch-runner Maddy Barone then stole 2nd & 3rd before being driven in by Ford. Two outs later McDonald hit a clutch single to drive in pinch-runner Liz Maher for the 3-1 lead. Halifax picked it right back up in the 4th, as Woodman, Carey & Ford all reached base with two outs. Alex Barone then banged out a two run double and Ford stole home to give the girls a 6-1 lead. However in the 4th & 5th innings, Revere took advantage of a few walks and and errors to plate 4 runs and pull within one, 6-5. The defense then tightened up, with O'Kelly, Balerna & Hill all making strong defensive plays. In the top of the 7th the girls added a big insurance run as Harris & Cadigan led off with singles and Carey delivered a run scoring single. In the bottom of the 7th, despite a two-out single, Cadigan calmly hauled in a fly ball in left field to end the game, and the girls were Tourney Champions.
         This was a total team accomplishment with each player contributing in various ways and supporting each other. The girls now move onto the New England Regional Tournament in Plaistow, NH July 30-31. They will compete against the Connecticut,  Vermont , New Hampshire & Western MA champions.
