Most everyone knows about Monday’s rare moments of darkness, as the moon interrupted the beams of the sun.

But what was the explanation for the dazzling light that was reported on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday afternoons?

Astronomers are mystified, but local sports fans suspect that the Bedford High School team was responsible, winning its first three games by a combined score of 41-3 and a hits differential of 44-7.

Much of the electricity was generated by junior Alyx Rossi, who after transferring from Austin Preparatory began her BHS varsity pitching career with back-to-back no-hitters at Boston Latin Academy (11-0) and Newton South (15-0), striking out 32 of the 36 outs in 12 innings of play.

Thursday’s home opener, played at Field F near the library, was a 15-3 win against Boston Latin School. The attack was led by sophomores: Kate Patterson’s three hits, and four runs batted in each by Addi Poulter and Lexie Masters. 

Sophomore Audrye Dumlao was the winning pitcher. Rossi recorded the last five outs, all on strikeouts. Rossi cooled off at the plate with a single and two walks. In the first two games she had half a season’s worth of offense: eight hits, including three doubles and two home runs, and five RBI.
