Summary:

Leominster dug a deep hole -- trailing the defending state champions 3-0 on their home field in the state championship game -- but climbed out of it to capture a 5-4 title game win. Eleven-year-old Bob Hulecki's solo home run in the fourth was the first blow, and an RBI single cut Swampscott's lead to 3-2. Swampscott dodged a pair of bullets in the fifth, as Leomister pitcher Steve Santucci's apparent lead-off double was nullified when Santucci missed first base, and when Keith Collette was throw out at the plate trying to score on a grounder to third. However, a delayed steal of home tied the game at 3-3, Steve Osborne singled in the go-ahead run, and Hulecki scored on a wild pitch, giving Leominster a 5-3 lead heading into the bottom of the fifth. In the semifinals, Collette's solo home run in the bottom of the sixth inning pushed Leominster American past Braintree American, while Swampscott ace Jeff January fired a two-hitter and struck out 11 to lead his team past East Boston.
