The Avonworth varsity baseball team put up a good fight, but, in the end, the team couldn’t put hits together, losing the WPIAL 3A Championship game to Brownville, 5-2.
Starter Ryan Felter and Reliever Turner Grau pitched valiantly, but a two-run first inning and solo tallies in the third, sixth, and seventh were too much to overcome, despite error-free defense.
After trailing 3-0 in the third, the Lopes narrowed the gap, scoring two runs. Jax Miller singled in a run, and another scored on an errant throw to second base on a steal attempt.
Jack Reed and Felter each had two hits.
It was an historic WPIAL season for Avonworth, and the team will start the PIAA state tournament Monday, June 4 (site/opponent/time TBD).
