BINGHAM — Cody Laweryson pitched a perfect game, striking out 18, and the Valley baseball team blanked Rangeley 3-0 in an East/West Conference game. Laweryson needed to throw just 65 pitches, including 59 for strikes.

“I have never thrown a perfect game before,” he said. “I’ve been throwing pretty well. I’ve been throwing it where I’ve wanted to. My arm felt great today. It’s the best it’s felt in a long time. I was hitting my spots today. Everything was working.”

“He was on (Tuesday),” added Valley coach and Cody’s father Scott Laweryson. “It’s what he does — he throws strikes.”

Cody Laweryson, who is headed to the University of Maine to play baseball next season, has enjoyed a dominant season for Valley.

He’s pitched 20 innings, throwing 186 strikes and 33 balls. He has 55 strikeouts and had given up just one hit — a single against Rangeley last week. Laweryson has yet to walk a batter.

“It’s been fun watching,” Scott Laweryson. “My biggest thing is holding him back. He wants to keep throwing and I have to try and keep him at bay.

Nathan Ames went 2 for 3 for the Cavaliers (9-1).

Rangeley dropped to 5-5.
