Tetreault, a senior, gave up one run on six hits, four walks and six strikeouts in a 5-1 win over the Hillcats on Wednesday afternoon. Mascoma improved to 5-10 with the victory and must win against Berlin on Thursday to have any chance to stay in the hunt for NHIAA Division III playoff seeding before the field is announced on Monday.
