Lemarche Pitches Eight Inning Gem in Falcons’ 6-4 Loss to CVU

May 15, 2012

NEWPORT–When a team is mired in a one win season they need someone or something to rally around.
For the North Country baseball team, that someone is pitcher Joel Lemarche.
Nicknamed "Sheldon" for his resemblance to the character played by Emmy award winning actor Jim Parsons on CBS' The Big Bang Theory, Lemarche came out and threw a masterful eight inning game for a shorthanded Falcon team on Monday against Champlain Valley.
Even though North Country lost the game 6-4 Lemarche's performance was topic of conversation after the game.
"It was a heck of a job," mused Tyler Sanville.

Playing under "Pro-style" rules to speed up the game, the Falcons won the first match 5-2 and then finished off the Raiders 4-3 in the second.
"These matches were really important to us," said coach Marie George. "The victories gave us wins number three and four on the season, and we really needed them."
In singles play, Erin Connor defeated Rhiannon Rosamillia 8-4 for the Raiders’ only singles win as the rest of the Falcons all won their matches.

NEWPORT–This one was not even close.
The Falcons scored sixteen runs on fourteen hits, six walks, two hit-by-ptches and eight wild pitches, defeating CVU 16-0.
"This was a big win. I feel it got our confidence up. Getting hits and laying down the bunts when I asked them to was key," said coach Leslie Dunn. "Defensively we didn't make any mistakes and we looked really good."
North Country got off to an interesting start, as Maddie Mosher scored the game's first run without the benefit of a hit.
