Bennington Banner (Newspaper) - April 23, 1963, Bennington, Vermont A 6-Bennington Banner tuesday april 23, 1963 sabers Post opening win hit Well behind Allard no contest is. Rutland by Charles j read or. A smooth pitching performance and solid balanced hitting throughout the batting order gave Bennington Catholic High school a Victory in the 1963 opener Here yesterday a a satisfying 7-1 win Over Rutland High school. George Gigi Allard was the Able Saber hurler while the bats of Ted Bridges Bob Millington and Gerry Morrissey headed the attack against two red Raider pitchers. Chs actually won the game Early scoring two runs in the third inning via consecutive close line singles by Allard Billy Hayes and Bridges with one out and another shot to Centerfield by Millington after two were gone. Rutland never seriously threatened to have a big inning though they picked up an unearned run in the top of the fifth on a single and a couple of Saber errors. That made the score 2-1 in favor of chs but the sabers roared Back in the last of the fifth with five big runs and Gigi blazed the remainder without trouble. Allard struck out 16 raiders and walked Only one and that pass came lathe final inning when the senior Mounds Man appeared to be getting a bit tired and wild High. The first game of the season for the clubs was naturally ragged in spots. In the first inning Canty stroked a Long shot to right Center Field which appeared a routine out but Bryan Pizzaro raced Over and in too far As the Ball sailed Over his head for a double. In defense of the Young Fly Chaser alumni Field was not planned Well for Early Spring late afternoon games and the Low Sun gleams brightly Over the grandstand and into the fielders eyes. The twisting wind from left to right Field was no Small Zephyer either in tile Bottom of the first Bill Hayes dashed for second on the pitch and then held up half Way As the Rutland Catcher fired behind the runner to first base and the first baseman relayed to second. The ensuing run Down seemed a formality to tag the runner out yet Hayes somehow kept hustling and Dove safely Back into first. Seemingly As a Reward he was awarded second base on the next pitch As plate Umpire Frank Bizzarro called a balk on starting Rutland hurler Garry Swanson. The Saber base running All afternoon was rugged and hustling but far from conventional or smooth. In the second with Millington on second and Tom Tom Asi on first Morrissey bashed a Fly Down the right Field line which dropped about 10-feet fair. Millington rounded third thought twice and came Back. Tomasi rounded second and headed toward third now occupied by Millington who saw what was happening and again broke for the plate but was easily tagged out. The raiders gloated Over the play but a Little too Long and Tomasi streaked behind their backs for third and made it. And every one thought that ebbets Field was gone the highest Praise for Rutland in the opener must go to Catcher 4-door automatic transmission radio amp Heater very clean $1695 Liggett Bosworth sales amp service North Bennington Road Bennington it.

Millington rounded third went Back and saw Tom Tomasi heading his Way. Millington was caught but Tomasi made it to third. Steve Frankiewicz for his Back stopping chores. He handled the pitchers Well and has a Quick accurate Arm. The two stolen bases by chs could not be charged against the rugged Catcher. And speaking of catchers one of the main problems facing coach Lou Perrotta at chs before the season was a replacement for Catcher Tubby Keith lost by graduation. That problem May not be too Large if Gerry Morrissey continues to show As Well As he did against Rutland. The Stocky Sophomore was admittedly ragged around the edges with inexperience but despite a Jovial attitude is a hard nosed player willing to learn and if his Bat keeps booming he will be difficult to replace. Not much can be said about mallards a pitching except that it was excellent a he just mowed Mem Down. He struck out the Side in the first fourth and sixth innings and the third and fourth men in the Rutland lineup faced him a total of six times compiling six strikeouts ditto for Batter number seven. Wednesday the sabers face St. Mary a of Hoosick Falls a makeup for the postponed game of saturday. The game is in Hoosick Falls and Perrotta expects to Start either Tom Moore or Millington on the Mound. Perrotta is still looking for a second Pitcher behind you know who.
