  Head Coach Mike Manning and his 2022 Revere High School baseball team can take plenty of positives from a campaign that saw the Patriots win 13 games and finish second in the Greater Boston League (GBL). The Patriots entered last Friday’s Division I preliminary-round game at Beverly on a roll, having won six of their final seven regular-season contests.

  Unfortunately, 42nd-seeded Revere couldn’t keep the momentum going and dropped an 8-1 decision to No. 23 Beverly. Revere had its chances to score but left the bases loaded on two occasions, once in the fifth inning and once in the seventh. Meanwhile, the host Panthers reached Patriot pitching for eight runs as Beverly pitching held Revere to just one run. Ollie Svendsen, Mike Popp and Kyle Cummings all saw work on the mound for the Patriots.

  The Revere offense was led by Sal DeAngelis, who stroked three hits in three at-bats. Popp belted a hit and drove in Revere’s lone run, and Domenic Boudreau added a hit in the defeat. The game was out of character to what the Patriots had done over their final seven-game stretch to end the regular season.

  “Despite the outcome, I’m proud of the way [the team] battled today, as they did all season long,” Manning said after the game.

  Revere had outscored the opposition 47-18 during those last seven regular-season contests. But the offense couldn’t break through against the Panthers, who ended up losing, 11-2, to 10th-seeded Braintree in the Round of 32.

  Along with accumulating 13 total victories, Revere went 11-3 in the GBL to earn second place in the league. It was just one game behind 12-2 Lynn Classical. The Patriots split their two games against the Rams during the regular season.
