NJSIAA Tournament

Opening Round

South Jersey Non-Public A

(6) CBA 3, (11) Paul VI 2

Junior Zaine Toneske crushed a go-ahead solo home run to lead off the bottom of the sixth and senior right-hander Mike Kelly pitched out of a second-and-third, no-out jam in the seventh to secure a win over the Colts over the Eagles.

Paul VI tied the game off starter and winning pitcher Colin Reilly in the top of the sixth on an RBI single by John Ormsby and a steal of home by Tulane-bound shortstop Mike Lucarelli. Joe Bruno whiffed on an attempted suicide squeeze bunt but Lucarelli slid under the tag of CBA catcher Joe Figliolino.

Reilly bounced back with a strikeout of Bruno and a groundout to shortstop Harrison Campi to end the threat with runners on second and third.

Toneske took strike one on a breaking ball to start the bottom of the sixth and unloaded on a 0-1 fastball with a shot that cleared the fence in leftfield.

Paul VI got runners to second and third with none out in the seventh on a hit-by-pitch followed by a bloop double down the rightfield line by leadoff hitter Sasha Palma. CBA's defense then came up with a big play, with second baseman Alexey Stout gloving a line drive by Nick Nigro and flipping it to Campi at second for the double-play. Kelly then struck out No. 3 hitter and catcher Declan Williams on a 2-2 fastball to end the game.

Stout singled and scored on an RBI single by junior Hunter Del Guercio to put CBA up, 1-0, in the bottom of the first and later drove in Matt DiFeo with an RBI single of his own to extend the Colts' lead to 2-0 in the fifth.

CBA moves on to face No. 3 Red Bank Catholic in Friday's sectional quarterfinal at Count Basie Park in Red Bank.
