plays and we did not. We beat them four times and they re­ally wanted to beat us.”

Al­ready trail­ing 3-0, Snider gave the ball to Ben Mo­rina to stop the base run­ners. Deep Run loaded the bDses Ln Whe firsW Whree Ln­nings and while they were able to push across two more runs on Sean McLeod’s tworun sin­gle, Mo­rina stranded the rest. Deep Run stranded 16 base run­ners and Mo­rina held Deep Run score­less over the last four in­nings.

“I felt great, but I would have liked to have a win,” Mo­rina said. “They hit a few that fell in front of our RuW­field­ers, buW , sWLll IelW we could have pulled it off. I did not think miss­ing a few guys would hurt, but I think it showed that it did.”

0RrLnD’s Ln­field sLnJle WR kick off the fourth in­ning broke up Dal­ton’s no-hit­ter. A triple by Dante Ter­rell and a dou­ble by Shoultes brought the Bux-Mont League champs within three runs, but the mo­men­tum never changed hands.

Slightly dis­ap­pointed to be short­handed for the play­off game, the 10 in at­ten­dance for Pen­nridge never stopped be­liev­ing they could win. And though they now needed to beat Soud­er­ton to ad­vance to Satur­day’s cham­pi­onship game, they still held faith.

“Dante got us go­ing and Ben shut the door, but it was too big of a hole to dig out of,” Snider said. “I was dis­ap­pointed to have a few guys miss­ing. At this point, if we get the cham­pi­onship game I might go with these 10 be­cause they stayed with us, but we have to get there firsW.”

While Dal­ton’s one walked bat­ter to Pen­nridge’s eight is stag­ger­ing, the de­fense be­hind Dal­ton made the big­gest dif­fer­ence. The PLd­dle Ln­field RI BrDd 0LsLalek and A.J. Moli­tierre wDs crLsS Dnd cenWer­fielder Danny Shane showed off his leather on sev­eral oc­ca­sions. Deep Run will need the same ef­fort Satur­day af­ter­noon if they want to win WheLr firsW sWDWe chDPSLRn­shLS since 2008.

“Dan, A.J. and Brad helped out so much,” Dal­ton said. “We needed this game. We have been re­ally even keeled through tour­na­ment, whether we have been up or down. We are ready to win a cham­pi­onship.”
