GLOUCESTER, Mass. -- You could not ask for much more pressure to put on a relief pitcher in a Little League baseball game.   Pittsfield American Division All-Stars Manager Ty Perrault could not have asked for a tougher kid to take the ball.   Robby Bazinet threw 3-⅔ innings of scoreless relief, stranding seven runners as Pittsfield came from behind to beat Middleboro, 7-2, in its final round-robin game at the state 12-year-old tournament.   Kevin Konefal doubled in a run in the top of the sixth to erase a 2-1 deficit and doubled in two more runs in the top of the eighth to give the Americans the lead and start a five-run rally.   Bazinet also drove in a run in that

DALTON, Mass. — For more than three decades, John Kovacs has been doing right by the Wahconah boys soccer program.   That includes his decision this summer to step down as the varsity head coach.   "For me, it was timing," Kovacs said on Thursday.

It needs new blood and new energy.'"   "I'm no longer a good fit, and I'm OK with that. I've been there so long, and it's wonderful. It just needs new blood."   "Wonderful" could be an understatement, if the
