Shoreham-Wading River baseball player Brian Morrell 043016

Any time Brian Morrell is handed a baseball, he is capable of throwing a no-hitter.

It hurt Shoreham-Wading River to drop two games from its three-game Suffolk County League VII baseball series with Mount Sinai, but what was much more painful was watching Vincent Uzzi clutching his right knee in obvious agony after tumbling to the ground.

CLASS A COUNTY FINALS, GAME 3  |  PHANTOMS 1, WILDCATS 0

A heavy rainstorm that hit the area Monday forced the final game of the Class A county finals between Shoreham-Wading River and Bayport-Blue Point to be postponed. Lingering rain Tuesday pushed it back another day.

As the clouds finally broke Wednesday, and the sun shined down, the highly-anticipated Game 3 featuring two stud pitchers had finally arrived.

And the wait, at least for the Phantoms, was well worth it.  (more…)

CLASS A COUNTY FINALS, GAME 2  |  WILDCATS 4, PHANTOMS 0

It took only 73 minutes for Shoreham-Wading River to ensure its season wasn’t over just yet.

Each team will turn to their aces for a decisive Game 3 Monday back in Bayport to determine the county champion.  (more…)

CLASS A SEMIFINALS, GAME 3  |  WILDCATS 5, KNIGHTS 1

As the No. 5 seed in the Class A Tournament, Shoreham-Wading River faced a longer road through the postseason than the League VI and VII champions, which received automatic byes into the semifinals.

On the surface, the higher seed had the better positioning. By playing that extra game, however, the Wildcats found themselves on the better end of a pitching matchup when they took the field against No. 1 John Glenn Tuesday in the decisive third game of the semifinal series.

At stake: a trip to the county finals.  (more…)

CLASS A PLAYOFFS  |  WILDCATS 7, HURRICANES 2

Sixteen players had to come to bat for the Wildcats and only one reached base on a walk.

“It was very frustrating,” said third baseman Matt Fox.  (more…)
