BRISTOL — Elliott Good made sure Maloney baseball got its payback against Bristol Central.

The senior threw three innings of shutout relief pitching and jacked a long home run in the top of the ninth inning to carry the Spartans to a 4-3 victory Wednesday over a team that had beaten them 22-3 on Opening Day.

This time around, Maloney starting pitcher John Vumback kept the Rams in check. Vumback pitched six strong innings, allowing three runs on four hits. He struck out five.

Good came on and worked the seventh, eighth and ninth and struck out three. Good hit his home run off BC’s Gavin Gregor.

Owen Papciak was also strong at the plate for Maloney, going 3-for-4 with a double and two RBI.

The Spartans improved to 2-4 overall with the CCC South crossover win. BC fell to 3-2.

Cheshire 4, Hamden 3 (9 inn.): The Rams also won in extra innings, posting the SCC crossover victory in Hamden.

It was the seventh straight win for Cheshire, now 7-1 overall. 

Southington 15, Farmington 1 (5 inn.): After going 13 innings without scoring on Tuesday, the Southington baseball team cranked out 15 runs in five 24 hours later.

Five different Blue Knights had multiple hits as Southington rebounded from its 1-0 loss to Glastonbury with the mercy-rule romp of the Indians on their home turf at Tunxis Mead.

A seven-run second inning put things to bed early. Jake DelMonte’s two-run double and Jake Romano’s two-run single were the big blows in that uprising.

Jack Meade, who had doubled and scored to lead off the game in the top of the first inning, added a RBI triple in the second.

Jake Neuman (2-for-3) collected one of his three RBIs in the second as well as the Blue Knights improved to 6-1.

Ryan Henderson (2-0) worked all five innings on the hill for Southington. He allowed just two hits, walked one and whiffed three. The Farmington run was unearned.

DelMonte and Meade both finished 2-for-2. Neuman and Romano were 2-for-3.

Andrew Paradis went 2-for-4 with a double and two-run single in the fourth.

Wilcox Tech 14, Whitney Tech 0: The Indians exploded for eight runs in the third inning en route to the CTC victory in Hamden.

Noah Simone logged three spotless innings to earn the win. He yielded just one hit and one walk while fanning two.

Steven Armstrong led the Indians at the plate with a 4-for-4 afternoon. Nick Priebe was 3-for-3 with three triples.

Mike Furgalack also went 3-for-3, with one of his hits going for a triple.

James Theriault was 2-for-3 with a double and Kyle Dobensky went 2-for-4 as Wilcox improved to 4-2 overall and 4-0 in the CTC.

North Haven 7, Lyman Hall 0: The Trojans dropped the SCC Quinnipiac contest at Pat Wall Field.

The loss was Lyman Hall’s fifth in the row and it knocked the Trojans to 3-6 overall. They are 0-2 in Quinnipiac play.

The Indians improved to 4-4 and 2-0.

Colin Blake took the loss for LH. Jason Mazzaro earned the win for North Haven.

Anthony Cretella and Anthony Boyle had singles for the Trojans.
