Deerfield dropped its first CNEPSBL game of the season, losing 4-1 to Worcester Academy. Billy O’Neil pitched 4 2/3 innings and Doug Vallar came in to finish the game in relief. Justin Finan collected 2 hits on the afternoon for Deerfield. While it was a solid effort from both squads, Worcester gained some advantages on the bases that Deerfield was not able to overcome. The Big Green will take-on NMH in an important league contest on Wednesday afternoon.
