The Green Mountain Boys (GMB) pushed their record to a perfect 4-0 with a convincing 10-2 win over Williston on Saturday. Recording their 4th win in a row the GMB’s once again displayed stellar defensive with dominating pitching in a game where they had their most impressive offensive display of the season to date. The GMB’s have outscored their opponents 27-6 in four games.
The game began with the GMB’s scoring four quick runs in the first inning, which was all they would need to secure their fourth straight win. A balanced attack was led by Connor Philbrick who celebrated his birthday with two hits, including a triple and a single. Other hitting contributors of note were Ethan Oglesby, Gus Bigio, Ben Vincent, and Rory Ulmer.
Once again Becket Hill pitched two perfect innings before handing over the pitching duties to Bo Pike of Shelburne. Pike finished the game on the mound and shut down a feisty Williston squad pitching well in his reliever role from the third inning on. Thomas Lyons and Derek Pickard contributed to the convincing win with strong defense and aggressive hitting.
Philbrick helped to celebrate his 11th birthday earning the coveted Golden Helmet this week. Connor had a multiple hit game, played a flawless game behind the plate, and was aggressive on the base paths. The Green Mountain Boys hope to keep their perfect season alive with their 5th consecutive win in their next game this Saturday against a strong Shelburne squad at The Field House at 1 pm.
