It has been a busy few weeks for us. On Saturday May 22nd the Beaneaters traveled to Laconia NH to take on the NH Granite in a set of 61 and 86 rules. Both games were won by the Beaneaters. It was a good day that was sponsored by the Laconia Historical Society.
May 23rd we kicked off our season at Spencer Peirce Little Farm in Newbury. Here are the results
11am Lynn vs. Essex, Essex won
12:30 Lynn vs. Dirigo, Dirigo won
2pm Ipswich Brewers vs. Dirigo, Dirigo won
May 29 The Essex Nine traveled to Hartford, CT to participate in the Colt Meadows Invitational. The first game saw them pair up against a mixed nine from the new Coltsville League. The game was close but Essex showed their seasoning winning the match. The second game was a rematch against the Brooklyn Atlantics but again the Atlantics were too strong beating the Essex Nine 10-5.
Our next match is Sunday June 13th against the Melrose Pondfielders on Georges Island at 12pm. For information on how to get out to the island http://www.islandalliance.org
