The suicide squeeze is one of the riskiest plays in baseball, fraught with downside if the batter can't lay down an adequate bunt.

For Woodstown, it was a reliable offensive strategy Wednesday, bringing in both of its runs in a 10-inning, 2-1 victory over visiting Glassboro in a Tri-County Conference Diamond Division matchup.

After the Bulldogs opened the scoring in the top of the fifth inning, Woodstown's Bailey Gibson sprinted home from third on a squeeze, with Kenny Blocksom putting down a clean bunt.

Five innings later, with Nick Battle at the plate, Wolverines coach Lee Ware called for the play again, sending Sam Nowicki dashing toward the plate and securing victory when he crossed home safely.

Senior Tyler Gibson became the first Woodstown pitcher in Ware's 40 years at the helm to pitch 10 innings, scattering just five hits in a commanding performance.

In another Tri-County game, Clearview's Dave Young punished Williamstown from the batter's box and the mound in the Pioneers' 8-4 home win. Young homered, drove in two runs, and struck out eight.


Ryan Bralski broke the Mainland record for goals in a season, scoring a game-high seven to lift the Mustangs past visiting Lower Cape May, 15-8, in a Cape-Atlantic League contest.

The senior has 47 goals with four games to play; the previous record of 46 was set by former U.S. Lacrosse High School All-American Ian Previti in 2008.

In another CAL matchup, Egg Harbor Township attack Connor Houghton set a school record with 11 points, with four goals and seven assists, as the Eagles stormed to a 17-6 win at Ocean City. Ryan King added a game-high six goals.
