Northern Lebanon 2, Pequea Valley 1

With a chance to clinch the Section 4 Championship, Northern Lebanon hosted Pequea Valley, the team that handed the Vikings one of their two losses this season. Sophomore Adrian Gonzalez got the call from Coach Thome to take the mound. Following a leadoff walk and stolen base by Andrew Via, Gonzalez’s cousin, it was Gonzalez with an RBI single to get the scoring started. Gonzalez would then score on a wild pitch to give his team a 2-0 lead by the time he took the mound in the 2nd. From there, the game would turn into a pitcher’s duel, with Pequea getting their only runner across the plate in the 3rd inning. Gonzalez pitched all seven innings, finishing the game with 11 Ks and scattered seven hits on his way to only giving up only one run.

With the win, the Vikings won the Section 4 Championship. They are now 17-2 and will play Annville-Cleona on Monday in their final game of the regular season.

After trading runs in the 3rd inning, the Falcons fell behind 4-1 after the Red Tornado put up three runs in the Top 6th.

Cedar Crest made the most of every baserunner, as they only had three hits, but drew four walks and saw two players get hit by errant pitches. On Senior Night, seniors Dayton DiBiaso, Logan Oriel, Dominic Roth, and junior Vincent Good drove in runs for the Falcons. In the contest, DiBiaso and Oriel each swiped a base. Senior Dylan Fegley hit a triple and scored a run. Warren pitched the final 1.2 to earn the win.

Box Score


Cedar Crest 5, Manheim Township 2  

 Junior Aaron Krumbine continued his emergence as a weapon out of the ‘pen for Coach Matt Knox as his three-inning no-run outing propelled the Falcons to victory against the Blue Streaks. CC scored three runs in the sixth and one in the seventh as Krumbine mitigated around two walks in relief of Gaven Shreier, who held MT to two runs through four-plus innings. RBI singles by Dayton DiBiaso and Jackson Custer on each side of a Logan Oriel sac fly were the highlights of the three-run sixth. Reached for comment after the game, Coach Knox was effusive in his praise for Krumbine’s temerity on the mound. Entering with a runner on first and third with no outs in the fifth, he induced three ground balls to end the threat. “He showed some (guts),” Knox commented, noting that a seventh-inning double play led to a “legit win” for the Falcons. Krumbine picked up his first varsity win and has a 1.91 ERA in six appearances for Crest.

The 8-8 Falcons play at Hempfield Wednesday and at home versus Warwick Friday before closing out at home versus Palmyra on Monday. Box Score
