WESTFALL - Starting fast at their first home game on March 28, the Delaware Valley Baseball team shut out East Stroudsburg North by a score of 11-0. The Warriors pulled out to a 4-0 lead in the bottom of the first inning; as Pat Harsh, Josh Navitsky, and Pat Smith all scored runs. Joe McNeely highlighted the second inning with the only homerun of the game bringing the score 7-0. Billy Phillips scored the only run in the third, while East Stroudsburg North failed to get on the board. Harsh, Navitsky, and Smith contributed three more in the fourth. As the fifth inning closed the T-Wolves trailed by 11 runs and the ten-run rule brought the game to a screeching halt. McNeely threw six strikeouts and allowed only two hits in the game. He said later that “the whole team just came together”, making their win possible. The Warrior game against Honesdale on March 30 ended in a 6-0 victory, but the team has stumbled since, and after consecutive losses to East Stroudsburg South and Abington Heights their record stands at 2-2.
