Game Recap

TROJANS WIN DISTRICT TITLE 5-4 OVER CROSSTOWN RIVAL PANTHERS. You could not have scripted it any better, as the Clarenceville Trojans beat Redford Union in the MHSAA district final hosted by Clarenceville High School, by scoring 3 runs in the bottom of the 6th on a 1 out double by Freshman Tavian Cruz, and a perfectly executed suicide squeeze by Zack Richards and Matt Drain. Trailing 4-0 Cruz also hit a 2 run bomb in the 5th inning that cleared the 360 ft right center fence by 20 feet to cut the Panther lead to two. His double in the 6th hit the top of the fence on the fly missing a Grand Slam by inches. This is Clarenceville’s first district title since 2000. “At the beginning of the year we set two goals, win the league and win the district” said Head Coach Craig Cotter. ” We were fortunate enough to do both” Clarenceville has not beat Redford Union in the last 5 years under Panther Head Coach Bob Miller. “I have gone up against Bob, in CYO(Catholic Youth Organization) even before he took over the Redford Union job and never beat him” said Cotter. “Coach Miller is a class act, he came over after the game and personally congratulated our boys on the win” Trojan’s Junior Logan Calimazzo gave up 4 runs in three and two third innings of work. “Logan pitched better than the numbers indicated, just had a little problem finding the strike zone consistently and falling behind on batters”, said Cotter. Junior Nick Bisaro came in with 2 outs in the 4th struck out the only batter he faced with men on 2nd and 3rd, and then he no hit the Redford Union the rest of the way. The game ended on a Tyler Collard bounce out to Bisaro. Collard was the starting pitcher for Redford Union, the two are best friends and play on the same summer ball team. Redford Union is only two miles away from Clarenceville and the players on both teams know each other well and played little league together growing up. Cotter was asked one word to describe the win and all he could say was “UNFORGETTABLE” “Our boys worked hard all year, very rarely if ever missed practice and came together as a tight unit the last two weeks of the season with laser focus” The Trojans open up regional play at Madonna University next Saturday June 10th at 12 noon vs Hazel Park in a Semi-Final game. The Trojans are 14-11 over all this season
