continued It was all part of a full and eventful afternoon on the CBA campus that included varsity boys and girls lacrosse, plus baseball and softball games against local rival Jamesville-DeWitt.
Two days removed from its narrow defeat to Class A power West Genesee, the CBA girls lacrosse team, no. 1 in the state Class C rankings, recovered with a 15-7 victory over Marcellus.
The Mustangs hung close for most of the first half, only trailing 4-2 before a trademark surge from the Brothers. In order, Kara Dell'uomo, Taylor Poplawski, Marisa Romeo, Caroline Webster and Sophie Racciatti all scored in a span of less than two minutes, making it 9-2.
Marcellus never got closer again as Racciatti led CBA with five goals and two assists. Webster was close behind, with four goals and one assist, as Romeo got two goals and three assists. Poplawski had two goals and two assists. Meg Hannan also scored as Michelle Wiese added an assist.
Making it three-for-three, the CBA baseball team rode a big first inning all the way to a 9-4 victory over Jamesville-DeWitt to improve to 2-0 in the OHSL Freedom division (2-1 overall).
Amid a five-run first inning where it chased Red Rams starter Matt Yonta, Andrew Gacek supplied the big blow, a three-run double, and Bryce Wiley also doubled home a run. The Brothers had an 8-0 edge through four innings, more than enough, despite J-D's late push.
Camillo Spinosa had three hits and Pat Pierret added two hits, giving support to Jack Glover, who pitched four innings to earn the win and got relief support from Brad McAuliffe and Tim Pierret. For J-D, Brad Davis and Jimmy Sinopoil both had solid relief stints as John Werbowky managed two hits and two RBIs. Dan Canfield and Chris McGee also drove in runs.
