Moffitt goes deep for walkoff winner


Eugenie Moffitt certainly made her first career varsity home run a very memorable one, blasting a seventh-inning homer to give Andover an 8-7 walkoff victory over Masconomet on Friday. Moffitt also tripled and singled, Lauren Giacchetto had two hits and scored twice and Amy Stankiewicz drove in three runs and was the winning pitcher.

Tori Roche managed Andover’s lone hit in a 6-0 loss to North Andover last Wednesday.
