Warriors beat Indians
Havre de Grace (7-11) ended its regular season with a win Tuesday, beating North East, 6-1, in non-division play. North East played as home team, even though the game was played in Havre de Grace.

Kateri Peters put the Warriors ahead in the second with a three-run shot to deep left field. Samara White and Addie Richardson had both singled before Peters hit the blast.
The Warriors were back at it again in the fourth. Lucy Brooks, who ran for Peters after a single, and Olivia DuBois, who also singled, were aboard for Hailey Emerson's three-run dinger.
