Barnstable comes up short in close loss to Everett in Division 1A MIAA State Title Game.
In a game filled with ample interceptions, turnovers, missed catches, and personal fouls by both teams, the Barnstable Red Raider's hopes for a state championship were dashed by the Everett Crimson Tide on Saturday afternoon at Gillette Statium. The final score of the game was 20 to 19, with Everett taking home the Division 1A MIAA Superbowl win. The game started with Everett capitalizing on an interception early in the 1st quarter. At the half time, Everett lead Barnstable 13 to 7. Everett expanded their lead to 20 to 7 in the 3rd quarter. Barnstable scored back to back touchdowns in the 4th and drove down the field with seconds left in the game, but was unable to get to the end zone. Following the game, Red Raider fans took to Facebook …

In an early-season battle of a pair of local unbeaten teams, the high-scoring, potent offense of Barnstable (3-0) downed host Sandwich (2-1), 35-14, last night at the Sandwich Pop Warner Field.
When it comes to passing the football, there just aren't many better teams in the state than Barnstable High School's Red Raiders. Senior quarterback Nick Peabody landed himself in the Red Raider record books once again last night, throwing 29-42 for 402 yards, five touchdowns and just his first interception of the season to lead BHS to a 35-14 victory. Peabody's 29 completions was the second most ever in a single game by a Red Raider quarterback. His 398 yards passing marks the second highest yardage total in school history and he has 966 yards passing in just three games, averaging just shy of 321 yards per game. Senior wide receiver Dylan Morris caught just four passes -- three of those for touchdowns and a total of 77 yards, while …

The 2012 high school baseball season came to an end for the Barnstable Red Raiders Sunday afternoon on a gorgeous day at Campanelli Stadium in Brockton as the Taunton Tigers downed the Red & White, 3-0.
With Willie Nastasi on the mound, the Red Raiders perhaps thought little of their opponent the Taunton Tigers in Sunday afternoon's MIAA Division 1 South Sectional Semifinal. Perhaps too little. The feisty, spirited and lively Taunton squad (18-5) took advantage of a 1-0 lead and rode it all the way to victory yesterday afternoon at Campanelli Stadium in Brockton, tacking two more runs on in the bottom of the eighth inning for a 3-0 finale. Taunton faces Xaverian today at 4:00 pm at Braintree High School in the MIAA Division 1 South Sectional Championship. Nastasi certainly pitched well enough to win his final high school baseball game, but the oft-silent Red Raider bats and perhaps a handful of squandered opportunities to produce runs …

Barnstable High School's Willie Nastasi went the distance in a 9-inning, complete-game victory in the Red Raiders' MIAA Division 1 South Sectional opener versus Catholic Memorial this afternoon, setting the stage for a Tuesday, June 5 game.
Say hey, Willie, say hey. Barnstable High's senior righty Willie Nastasi went the distance yesterday afternoon in front of the most fans Hyannis has seen this season, and notched a 6-1 victory over visiting Catholic Memorial. Memorial finishes the season at 12-9, and Barnstable (15-4) advances to Tuesday, June 5 in the MIAA Division 1 South Sectionals to face Boston College High School (15-5) or Framingham (11-7). The game will be played at Barnstable High School on Tuesday, June 5 at 4 pm. All tournament games are nine innings. Nastasi went all nine innings for the Red and White, throwing 110 pitches in a performance that stifled the Catholic Memorial bats. He struck out seven, scattered five hits, walked one and hit one batsman. His sole…

Heading into the final week of its regular season, the 11-3 Barnstable High School baseball team rode quality starting and relief pitching en route to a 7-0 win over the visiting Bridgewater-Raynham Trojans yesterday afternoon at Barnstable High School.
It's pretty tough for an opponent to beat you when your pitchers allow just a handful of baserunners and those same pitchers strike out 14 batters. Senior starter Willie Nastasi turned in seven strong, shutout innings yesterday versus the visiting Bridgewater-Raynham Trojans, striking out 11 batters, scattering three basehits and walking just two batters. Senior righty Keegan Dellacona came on in the 8th and 9th frames and allowed one hit and fanned three batters. The 7-0 victory was Nastasi's 4th win of the 2012 campaign. He is now 4-0 as the Red Raiders ready to welcome D-Y on Monday. Nastasi and Dellacona got all the run support they would need in the bottom of the third inning thanks to a Luke Besse sacrifice fly. Sophomore Derek …

Senior righty George Bent turned in a spectacular, complete-game performance this afternoon against Dartmouth and led Barnstable High School's diamond nine to a 6-1 victory. The Red Raiders are now 9-2 heading into tomorrow's road trip to Nauset.
Talk about control. Barnstable High School senior righty George Bent looked like the embodiment of a textbook lesson on pitching control this afternoon, as he struck out 12, walked none, scattered six hits and used 112 pitches in nine innings for his first win of 2012. The sole run he allowed - unearned - came in the top of the eighth inning. Through seven innings, Bent had allowed no runs, struck out 10, allowed just three hits and walked no one and he used just 80 pitches. And as if those details were not enough to add him to the growing list of top notch Red & White hurlers, of the 80 pitches Bent threw in his first seven innings of work, he pinpointed 66 strikes and tossed just 14 balls. After a pair of 1-2-3 innings by Bent in the …

Barnstable raised its record to 7-1 today in Fall River against non-league B.M.C. Durfee High School, thanks to another solid outing from righty senior Pete Liimatainen and the continued torrid hitting of leadoff man Luke Besse for an 8-1 win.
Casey Stengel once said that "good pitching will always stop good hitting." Well, what if a baseball team has both? Displaying continued success with its bats en route to an 8-1 finale, the Barnstable High School Red Raiders this afternoon chewed through a host of Durfee High School pitchers, led by leadoff man Luke Besse (2-4, 2 RBI) and hits from Timmy Biliouris (2B, 2 RBI), Danny Walsh, Dylan Morris (RBI) and Everett Walsh. A handful of successful delayed steals with men on first and third also credited the Red Raiders with at least three of their eight runs on the day. Combined with those factors and a rock-solid outing from senior righty Pete Liimatainen, the Red and White saw its record climb to 7-1 on the season, less than 24 hours …

The Falmouth Clippers handed the red-hot Barnstable High School baseball team its first loss of the 2012 campaign, a 4-3 nailbiter that had all the makings of a quality ballgame, replete with late-inning dramatics, lively dugouts and some gutsy pitching.
Pitch for pitch, Falmouth's Kyle Kasperczyk and Barnstable High's Pete Liimatainen matched each other. After six innings, each respective pitcher had thrown almost an equal number of pitches and the score remained deadlocked at 3-3 yesterday. But after a fruitless Red Raider seventh frame, the host Falmouth Clippers loaded the bases with one out on closer Dan Holzman and then Kasperczyk came through with a screaming line drive over a drawn in infield, garnering a walk-off RBI single. The finale? Falmouth 4, Barnstable 3. Holzman took the hard-luck loss for Barnstable (5-1) while Kasperczyk picked up the "W." The lanky Falmouth right-hander basically won the game for himself with his game-winning baseknock. Barnstable's Dylan Morris helped …

Senior righty Keegan Dellacona fanned 15 Nauset Warriors this afternoon in Hyannis to pick up his second win in as many starts as Barnstable rolled to a 12-1 victory.
Make no mistake, this senior right-hander can pitch. Barnstable High School's Keegan Dellacona struck out 15 batters on this chilly, breezy afternoon on the Red Raider home field, defeating Nauset in a complete-game, four-hitter in a 12-1 finale. Dellacona allowed one unearned run in the top of the seventh inning, gave up four singles and walked four. He now stands at 2-0 with a 0.00 earned run average intact. Nauset's Joey Ogden was the sole Nauset batsman to have multiple hits as he banged out a pair of basehits to go 2-4 on the day. Barnstable's offense was an altogether different story, however, as every man in the Red Raiders' lineup rapped out at least one hit in this affair. Barnstable's Luke Besse went 2-3 with two runs scored, …
