Warriors Season Ends With Loss to Perk Valley
Written by Dave Teufel Correspondent

The Warriors' Tim Landis tries to slide into homeplate under the tag of the Perk Valley pitcher only to be tagged out in a MBC League playoff game at Perk Valley last Thursday night.

        The Upper Perkiomen Youth Legion prep baseball team saw their season come to an end last Thursday night when they were defeated by Perkiomen Valley by a final score of 5-2.

        Perkiomen Valley plated a run in the home half of the first inning to go ahead 1-0. Tyler Haywood led off the inning with a base hit, and after stealing second, he scored on a ground out off the bat of starting pitcher Zach Hollenbach.

        Upper Perk tied the score in the top of the second inning. Drake Conklin reached first base with two out in the inning. Tim Landis drew a walk, and Zach Rozanski was hit by a pitch to load the bases. Conklin scored the run on a passed ball, but despite yet another free pass to Matt Reinhart, the Warriors could do no further damage in the inning.

        Perk Valley took the lead for good in the bottom of the fourth inning. With one out Ethan Crowetti doubled to left field. Warriors starter Bobby Lynch appeared to have the next hitter struck out when he buzzed a knee-high fast ball past Aiden Moffa. Lynch and the Warriors didn't get the call; however, and Moffa sent the next pitch to the gap in left center that put Perk Valley ahead 2-1. Logan Carney and Cole Whitton followed with back-to-back singles and the inning ended with the Warriors down a pair at 3-1.

        After Perk Valley tacked on a single run in each of the next two innings, Upper Perk headed to the top of the seventh down by four runs. Hollenbach returned to the hill looking for the complete game win, but the Warriors would not go down without a fight.

        Reinhart opened the inning with a walk. David Kilroy singled, and Alec Fitzgerald walked to load the bases. When Drew Kupchak lined a 3-2 pitch into left field that made the score 5-2 it was enough to chase the Perk Valley starter. The rally would end there, though, and when the final out was made the Upper Perkiomen season had come to an end.

        The Warriors managed only four hits in the game, two of those came in the seventh inning. Levi Gehman posted the other two. Gehman also scored one of the two Warrior runs in the game. Kupchak had the team's only RBI.

        Perk Valley got a multiple hit performance from Haywood, Crowetti and Carney. Each had an extra-base hit and an RBI.

        Hollenbach (6.2IP-2R-1ER-3K-7BB-3HBP-137P) picked up the win. Lynch (5IP-4R-4ER-3K-1BB-86P) suffered the loss.

        Upper Perk had opened the playoff tournament with an 8-3 loss on the road at Phoenixville. The Warriors bounced back with a 7-3 win over Southern Leigh at home the next night for their lone win of the playoffs.
