SOMERS, N.Y. -- In a game that was close all the way between two teams that are both off to strong starts this spring, the Somers High baseball team hung on to earn a 7-5 victory over Yorktown Thursday at Somers High School.

In ideal conditions - mild temperatures and sunny skies - Somers senior right-hander Anthony Maestri picked up his first win of the season for the Tuskers, who improved to 6-3. Matt Pupczyk took the loss for Yorktown (7-4).

Somers coachJoe Wootten likes his team's start, but said the Tuskers are going to have to firm up their if they want to go far this season.

"It's not a bad start," he said of the team winning six of its first nine. "We're swinging the bats and competing on the hill. But if we want to be a top team, we've got to work on our defense. That's something that we need to work on."

Maestri doubled and had two RBI for Somers. Jack Kelly went 2-for-3 with a double and scored two runs for Yorktown.
