In Friday’s Coastal Courier story about Bradwell losing to Brunswick, it was incorrectly reported that Eric Wells made the catch and helped convert a triple play. It was freshman Tiger Cody Hill (Fleck) who caught the line drive, tagged second and threw to first for the triple play. We regret the error.
