LIVONIA — Livonia Bulldogs beat Geneseo Blue Devils Saturday night.
Livonia scored in the first inning and didn’t stop there, going on to win 9-0.
“We schedule this game every year to prepare for sectionals. You don’t get better by playing weak competition, you get better by playing teams like Livonia,” said Geneseo Head Coach Nick Drollette. “I have a lot of respect for the program that Coach Gilman has built there. This year’s team is the best offensive Livonia team I’ve seen in recent years and they showed it.”
Geneseo was held to five hits, freshman Luke Harris had three of those five hits for the Blue Devils.
Livonia’s 8th grader Alex Minnehan pitched all seven innings keeping the Blue Devils scoreless while striking out two.
“At the end of the day, I obviously want to win but they don’t start playing for keeps until next Thursday,” said Drollette. “I would rather lose to Livonia and get better for sectionals than beat a team of lesser talent and be under prepared.”
