Week 3 roundup: Win over Enfield snaps losing streak for CHS 9

Week 3 roundup:  April 20-24
CANTON, April 26 — The Canton High baseball team (6-2, 2-1 NCCC) snapped a two-game losing streak with a 3-0 shutout win over Enfield on the road last Thursday. Canton dropped its first game of the season in an 8-0 loss to Avon and then gave up 14 hits in a 10-4 non-league loss to Rocky Hill at Bowdoin Field on Monday.

Terrier sophomore Anthony Marzilli had two doubles and two RBI while Justin Sitaro had a double, HR and two RBI. Pitcher Corey Armstrong struck out five and allowed just five hits over six innings to earn his second win of the season. He also had a home run.

SOFTBALL: Canton (6-2, 3-1 NCCC) had just four hits in a 10-3 loss to New Britain on a rainy Wednesday afternoon last week. Hurricane pitcher Kelsey Newberg struck out 16 to lead the visitors (4-1). Three errors didn’t help the Canton cause, either.

Canton recovered with a 4-0 shutout victory over Enfield as pitcher Mo Gauthier scattered four hits but Ellington stunned Canton in last week’s Saturday matinee at the high school, 1-0. Purple Knight P Morgan McPartland scattered two hits in the victory. Ellington (6-1) pushed across its only run in the fourth inning.

TENNIS: The Canton boys tennis team had the week off due to spring break. The Warriors went 1-3 in its first four matches. The Canton girls team also had the week off and began this week with a record of 2-3.

TRACK & FIELD: The Warriors had the week off due to vacation. The boys are 4-0 while the girls are 2-2.

GOLF: Neither the boys or girls golf teams had matches due to spring vacation. The boys are 0-2-1 after tying Suffield two weeks ago. The girls team is 3-0 and the closest anyone has come to the Warriors after two matches is nine strokes in Canton’s 212-221 win over Avon.
