Eagles, Knights lose home games on Saturday

The Eagles suffered a non-region loss against North East Saturday afternoon, 11-6 at Davis Street Field in Youngsville.

“They started out good,” said Youngsville coach Wayne Marino, whose Eagles led 2-0 after one inning.

After that, however, “a few mental mistakes in the field,” said Marino.

The Eagles managed to come back, but still fell short to North East.

In order to keep his team fresh for region games, Marino said, “we treated this like a preseason game.”

The Eagles are looking to improve their 2-2 region record Wednesday when they host Titusville, but will next be in action Monday when they visit Mercyhurst Prep in a non-region game.

Titusville 14, Eisenhower 3

Titusville scored seven runs in the seventh inning on Saturday to put a Region 4 game away, 14-3 over Eisenhower at Werner Park.

“Down four runs, the odds are against you,” said Ike coach Cody Vincent, “but down 11, it turns into sort of a miracle.”

The Knights turned a game, with multiple close calls, into a 2-5 overall record and 2-3 region record. Ike hosts Northwestern on Tuesday.
