I'VE SPOKEN often in recent weeks on how this year's Portsmouth High boys' basketball team was good, but not as good as the two prior clubs that posted perfect championship seasons. I'd like to amend...
Patrick Quinn threw a no-hitter with 14 strikeouts to lead Manchester East to a 3-0 win over visiting Nashua in the first round of the District I Little League 11-12-year-old Tournament on Thursday. Quinn walked five batters in the win.
Tim Labarre actually shared the spotlight with Quinn, hitting a walk-off three-run homer in the bottom of the sixth on a 1-1 delivery. The homer went over left-center field with Ryan Cardow (double) and Jack Fitzgerald (error) aboard.
East managed to generate five hits off Nashua starter Hunter Bouthier, who struck out 11 batters in the complete-game loss.
