Cam Farnham led off the game with a single, stole second and scored as part of a two-run first for Andover, but Post 8 could manage little offense and struggled defensively from there, falling to powerhouse Newburyport 7-4 last Friday.
Post 8 jumped out to the quick 2-0 lead in the first, as Farnham scored on a groundout by Bennett Deady. Andrew Deloury followed with a double and Bennett's little brother Burton Deady plated him with a single.
But errors doomed Andover, especially two gaffes in a game-turning sixth inning. Tom Palleschi and Ryan Halloran each added RBIs for Post 8, while ace Dustin Hunt, the day before he committed to pitch at Northeastern, allowed only two earned runs in six innings and was the tough-luck loser.
