Late Surge Propels Team Christian-Linnehan
A final day streak pushed Christian-Linnehan over the top as they edged out Team Menton to win the February 2017 Survivor Series by two points. Winning five of seven games on the final day was enough to jump from second to first.
The champs were led by the Emsing and Adams families of Norwell. Will Emsing (.773, 7 HR, 17 RBI) led the way both offensively and defensively. He won the batting title and also led the league in RBI’s while leading the troops defensively from his shortstop position. Jackson Adams (.714, 4 HR), TJ Emsing (.667), Teddy Swanson (.563, 3 HR, 7 RBI) and Nick Emsing (.429, 3 HR, 8 RBI) were all strong two way performers. Nick Adams, Gavin Kenney and Declan Malone each chimed in in key moments.
Team Menton was in the battle right down to the wire. They were led by Brody Noonan (.737, 9 HR, 15 RBI), Jake Schulte (.737, 3 HR, 8 RBI) and the veteran brothers Nolan (.474) and Chris Swirbalus (.421, 4 HR, 8 RBI). Rounding out the squad were rookie performers Liam Connolly (5 HR, 10 RBI), Ben Raffeto, Hudson Mahon and Luke Mordas.
Team Tucker finished in third place but proved to be spoilers on the final day. Nick Tiani (.625, 3 HR), Colin McPherson (.500) and Eric Byrne (3 HR) led their attack. In supportive roles were Owen Christou, Nate Tiani, Jeremy Aylward, Colin Chisholm, Patrick Galvin and Declan McCarey.
Brody Noonan tied the all time series homerun record with nine, narrowly missing a record setter in his final at bat. Noonan was also named the tournament’s outstanding defensive player.
