Baseball: Newark can’t add on after taking early lead in state semifinal loss to Father McGivney

Norsemen finish with just a first-inning run, five total hits in 5-1 setback to Griffins

“(Father McGivney) came into today averaging over 10 runs a game and we held them to five. Unfortunately, we didn’t get the big hits when we needed them. It was nice to jump out to the lead right away, but we needed to add on.
