Provided | On Wednesday, Elba hosted its first home game at Elba High School since 2009.

ELBA — It had been 12 years since Lancers baseball had hosted a game at Elba High School before Attica visited on Wednesday night.

Although Elba didn’t get the result it was looking for, as a tough Attica team throttled the Lancers 12-0 in five innings, it was certainly good to be back home for coach and Elba alum Andy Boyce.

“It’s kind of a weight off our shoulders,” said Boyce about reopening their home field. “Never knowing where we’re playing or practicing was tough. Obviously we didn’t get the result we wanted tonight, but baseball is back and here to stay in Elba.”

Senior Zach Strzelec hurled a complete game, two-hit shutout to earn the win on the bump for Attica. He struck out 11 batters and added a 2-for-3 day at the plate which featured two runs, two RBI and four stolen bases.

Fellow senior Ian Romesser finished the night 3-for-4 with two runs scored and two RBI. Sophomore Dan Bialek recorded a double and knocked in two RBI.

The Blue Devils are 1-0, Elba falls to 1-1.

Attica is 1-0. Elba is 1-1.
