La Salle Drops Opening Day Doubleheader

Thursday, March 23, 2017 – La Salle Academy varsity and junior varsity Cardinals suffered losses on their opening-day games 6-0 on Varsity and 11-2 to non-conference, cross-town rival Xavier on a cold and blustery day at American Legion Field in Brooklyn.

Final scores notwithstanding, both games were close.  Varsity was down 0-1 going into the top of the seventh but Xavier struck for five to put the game away.  JV was tied 1-1 until the 3rd thanks to an RBI single by Angel Espinal but in the fourth errors and miscues lead to seven Xavier JV runs.

The next game will be played at American Legion Field on Thursday, March 30th at 4pm against Cardinal Hayes.
