Gorham got on the scoreboard in the top of the first inning. Brian Veazey led off with a base hit and was moved to second base on a sacrifice bunt by Kyle Boisselle. Sam Jensen walked and Veazey was able to score on a Tyler Sanschagrin fielder's choice.
The home team Mohawks scored a run of their own in the bottom of the first inning to make a 1-1 contest.
The visiting Huskies picked up a run in the top of the third inning. Jensen walked and stole second base to put himself in scoring position. A balk and a dropped third strike allowed Jensen to score and put Gorham in the lead 2-1.
In the bottom of the third inning, Colebrook loaded the bases on a hit batsman, a single, and an error. That brought Cooney to the plate. Cooney's shot skipped past the Huskie outfielder on the wet playing surface for an inside the park grand-slam and more importantly a 5-2 lead for Colebrook.
The Mohawks added another two runs in the bottom of the fourth inning. Hastings singled and scored on a Dylan Leach RBI double. Leach stole third base and then trotted home on a called balk against the Huskies making it a 7-2 lead for the home team.
Gorham scored in the top of the fifth inning. Tyler Sanschagrin singled and pilfered both second and third base. Senior teammate Brett Labnon swatted the RBI base hit to reduce the Gorham deficit to 7-3.
Gorham pushed it to 7-4 on a Boisselle walk and stolen base. Jensen's RBI base hit reduced the Mohawk lead to three runs 7-4.
Unfortunately mother nature had other ideas on this day and the game had to be called in the bottom of the sixth inning with two outs.
For the game, Colebrook's Bedard worked the first five innings and Leach threw one inning. The duo hit two batters, struck out five Huskies and walked six.
Sanschagrin hurled the first four innings and youngster Doug Levesque the last inning and two thirds. Those two pitchers combined to walk two, hit two batters, and struck out three.
The loss puts the Huskies at 6-9 and the Mohawks are now at 11-2. Gorham will play host to Canaan/Pittsburg on Thursday senior day and then travel to Lisbon on Friday.

Berlin got off on a good note in the bottom of the first inning plating a run for a 1-0 lead. Meagan Accardi singled and moved herself into scoring position stealing second base. A pass ball got the BHS shortstop over to third base. Teammate Chelsey Caron got the RBI single to put the home team on top.
In the bottom of the third inning, Accardi was again stirring up the Berlin offense. She worked her at-bat for a free pass. Caron reached on a fielder's choice and when the Tiger's Thompson had a pitch get away from her, both Accardi and Caron were in scoring position. Junior Carly Perreault ripped a single back through the middle to plate both runners pushing the Berlin advantage to three runs at 3-0.
The Mounties started their ace on the mound in freshman Jen Landers. Landers kept the Tigers off the score board until the top of the fifth inning. There was two outs when the Mounties committed a fielding error that seemed to ignite the visitors. Three straight singles and a hit batsman, set the stage for Anne Connolly. Connolly came through for Farmington swatting a double and giving the Lady Tigers their first lead 4-3. All four runs were unearned.
Berlin tried to come back in the bottom of the fifth inning. Caron reached base on a hit and got herself over to third base with just one out. That is when Thompson took over the contest. Thompson got herself out of the jam by striking out the next two Berlin batters. Thompson stayed tough in the sixth and seventh innings by getting Berlin to go in order to earn the one run victory.
For the game, Thompson surrendered six hits and three runs, walked two and struck out ten. The hard throwing pitcher retired the final eight Mountie hitters in a row. Landers had one of her better outings for the season against one of the Division III's top clubs. The Tigers four runs were unearned to go along with six hits, three walks, one hit batsman, and four strikeouts.
Berlin will host Prospect Mountain on Wednesday and then travel to White Mountain Regional High School on Friday to take on undefeated and top ranked Spartans.
