At Vineyard Baseball Park, Kyle Pucci pitched the first inning and Ethan Lynch threw the rest of the way to combine on a no-hitter as No. 17 Dover-Sherborn defeated the No. 16 Vineyarders, 4-0, in the Division 3 South Sectional. MV threatened to break on top with one out in the bottom of the second inning after loading the bases on two errors and a walk but left the runners on base.

Leo Neville pitched a complete game for the Vineyarders, allowing six hits, striking out two and walking three.

In Mattapoisett, the 14th seeded boys lacrosse team played at third-seeded Old Rochester in the Division 2 South Sectional and lost to the Bulldogs, 14-3.
