Baseball Semis, Softball Quarters Monday

May 23, 2022 11:13 pm

Peters Township spotted Thomas Jefferson a run in the second, then scored the next 11 runs, routing the Jaguars in the 5A baseball semifinals.  The Indians will face West Allegheny in the WPIAL Finals next week.  Burgettstown committed five errors in extra innings, the last two allowing Neshannock to take a 12-inning win in the 2A semifinal. The Blue Devils, with a state playoff berth already in hand, will drop into the 2A third-place game. Burgettstown was seeking its first-ever spot in a WPIAL baseball championship game.

Not a good day for the three Washington County 2A softball teams, all losing quarterfinal games and seeing the end of their seasons. Links for brackets & broadcasts plus the daily schedule for teams from the two-county area follow.
