La Salle captures AA crown and Suburban Council All Stars

The La Salle Cadets beat Columbia 3-2 and captured the section II class AA title thanks to a one out Will Remillard game winning single in the bottom of the seventh inning.

Remillard drove in senior Brian Beaury from third when he lined a base hit up the middle past the drawn in Columbia infield. Beaury started the inning off with a single to right and then promptly tried to swipe second base. Columbia called for a pitch out and had Beaury caught but catcher Ian Bridegroom's throw was high and went into shallow center field. By the time it was over Beaury was at third with the winning run.

Cadet starting pitcher Dave Roseboom worked his way out a major jam in the top of the inning. The sophomore walked back-to-back batters before picking off the lead runner for the second out and then struck out Patrick Puentes looking.
That series of plays was a major momentum shifter in the game as the Cadets then made sure the game ended in regulation.

Both starting pitchers threw gems for their respective teams. Columbia junior Nolan Gaige allowed just two runs and stuck out five in six-plus innings before being relieved by Austin Chase.
Roseboom struck out seven in a complete game performance.

It was a late night at The Joe as the game didn't start until 10:21p.m. and ended at 12:48a.m. Sunday morning.

La Salle advances to face Proctor (Utica) of section III Monday at Shuttleworth Park in Amsterdam at 7p.m.

That was a very good game between two very talented teams. I will add that there were a couple of poor calls by the home plate ump which could have changed the out come. Again, a very good game played hard, and very late in the evening.

When will you be posting all the all-stars from the Suburban Council, second team and honorable mentions?
