KENTS HILL — Cony scored three runs in the bottom of the sixth to break a late tie, and pitcher Kyle Douin went the distance in a 5-2 victory over Brunswick on a gusty, blustery day at Kents Hill School.

It didn’t come easily — Cony had 1-0 and 2-1 leads, only to see the Dragons answer both. In the sixth. Riley Geyer, who doubled in the first and scored Cony’s first run, drew a one-out walk and went to second on Bobby Stolt’s infield single. Geyer stole third, then broke for home on Eli Bezanson’s hard grounder to third. The ball was bobbled, and the catcher couldn’t hang on to the throw home, allowing Geyer – who missed the plate on his first slide – to touch home with the go-ahead run.

Stolt, who had gone to third on the throw home, scored on a wild pitch with Douin at the plate. Bezanson, who had gone to second on the wild pitch and stolen third, scored when Douin grounded to first.

OXFORD HILLS 3, MESSALONSKEE 2: Wyatt Williamson doubled and picked up the win on the mound as the Vikings won their season opener.

Carter Lambert had two hits and Dylan Cunningham had a triple for the Eagles.
