Softball Team Hosts Upset-Minded Holliston on Thursday

June 7, 2023

The Bedford High School Buccaneers will return to Miss G Field for the second round of the MIAA Division 2 state softball tournament at 4 p.m. on Thursday, thanks to a major upset on Tuesday.

Coach Dennis Walsh’s Bucs will host Holliston High School with the winner reaching the elite eight.

Holliston, ranked 27th, needed a play-in game to even compete in the opening round, and the Panthers throttled Holyoke, 18-0.

Then they traveled to sixth-ranked Walpole, with a record of 17-1, and won convincingly, 10-4, to even their record at 11 wins, 11 losses. Holliston competes in the Tri-Valley League.

The Bucs, now 15-4, were ranked 11th at the end of the season and hosted 22nd-ranked Westborough on Monday. Bedford was victorious 4-1, and never trailed, but the game was close until the final out.
