9U Wins Lower Perk!

The Boyertown 9U Bears started off their tournament season with a bang, decisively winning all five of their games in the Lower Perk Memorial Day Tournament on the way to taking the championship! The Boyertown 10U Advanced Play team also won their division in the same tournament!

During their first three pool play games, the 9U Bears defeated their opponents by a combined score of 43-4. Their first game was an 18-4 drubbing of host team Lower Perk. Otto K went 3-3 with a HR and four RBI, while Adam M went 2-3 with a triple and 5 RBI. Pool play game 2 was just as decisive - a 13-0 shutout of Malvern. Dylan N and Zane E teamed up to hold Mavern to one hit, fanning five. The final pool play game was another shutout, this time 12-0 over Lower Gwynedd. This time, Adam M and Trevor F held the opponent to one hit and struck out five.

The 9U team's first playoff game was against Upper Providence. The Bears jumped out to an early 3-0 lead in the bottom of the first, thanks to a triple by Dylan N, a double by Adam M, a double by Otto K, and a single by Tyler D. Dylan N, who started the game for the Bears, struck out five over his two innings pitched, including striking out the side in a shutdown top of the second. The Bears would add three more runs across the second and third to take a commanding 6-0 lead. Upper Providence rallied in the top of the fourth to pull within two, but they would not score again. Meanwhile, Boyertown added another run in the bottom of the fifth to extend their lead to what would be the final score, 7-4. Dylan N was the star of the game, going 3-3 with a triple and two doubles, in addition to his superb pitching performance.

Boyertown rode their momentum into the championship game against West Norriton. The first five Boyertown batters reached base in the inning, scoring two runs. West Norriton answered with a run in the bottom of the first to narrow Boyertown's lead to 2-1. The Bears offense came alive in the top of the third, when they tallied 7 hits and scored 5. Bryce M got things going in the big inning with a double to left. He was followed by doubles by Dylan N and Adam M and a single by Otto K. Carter P, Trevor F, and Zane E followed a West Norriton pitching change with three more consecutive singles to complete the hit parade. West Norriton would claw back three runs in the bottom of the fourth but the Bears simply uncorked more offense in the fifth and sixth, scoring nine additional runs to put the game out of reach. The final score was 16-6. It is difficult to identify a standout star in this team effort championship game win - eight Bears batters had multiple hits. The three Boyertown pitchers that combined for the championship game win were Tyler D, Dylan N, and Adam M, striking out a combined eight West Norriton batters.
