Avenging a pair of regular season league losses, No. 3 seed Notre Dame downed top seeded Lyndonville 8-3 this afternoon in the semifinal round of the Section V Class D1 baseball playoffs at Holley.

Notre Dame moved on top to stay by scoring four times during an error aided second inning uprising. A two-run double by Luca Zambito, an error and an RBI single by Chris Suozzi plated the tallies as back-to-back inning opening errors set up the opportunity.

Lyndnville did answer with a run in the home half of the second as Cody Bentley tripled and came home on a single by Corey Hydock. However, the Tigers could not cross home plate again until the sixth frame and by then the Irish had extended the lead to 8-1.
