Westview gained a measure of revenge against NECC rival Fairfield Monday night in Emma with a 14-4 bashing of the visiting Falcons.
Chase Anderson’s three-run homer in the first inning and RBI single in the second helped stake the Warriors to a 7-4 lead over the team which beat them in the NECC tournament finale earlier in the month. While pitcher Jamar Weaver held Fairfield scoreless the rest of the way, Westview tacked on two markers in the fourth and four more in the fifth to end the game by the 10-run mercy rule.
Anderson finished the contest with three hits and five RBI. Judah Zickafoose collected two hits and three RBI, Jake Berkey two hits and two RBI, Weaver three hits and Jamin Lambright a double.
Weaver scattered eight hits, walked one and struckout six in earning the win.
Austin Christner cracked a two-run homer and both Tony Zook and Andrew Bobeck laced RBI singles for Fairfield.
The win pushed Westview to 6-2 in the NECC.
