Barlow Knocks off #1 seed Newtown in SWC Quarterfinal thriller
Freshmen Matt Scott delivered the Falcons their first SWC tournament win in decades with a 2-1 victory over Newtown. The Freshmen hurler pitched a complete game gem allowing only 1 run on 3 hits, while striking out 5. Opponents this season have managed a meager .050 batting average against Scott in conference play this year.
Tiernan Lynch led the offense going 1-4 with a pair of game winning RBI’s. Junior Dave D’Augelli went 2-4 with a run scored, and Senior Ben Burrell registered two hits. Senior Sam Capetanakis continued his hot streak going 2-3 with a walk.
The Falcons will return to action tomorrow (Wed) to take on # 4 Bethel in the SWC semifinals at 7pm (Bethel High School). Starting on the bump for the Falcons will be Junior Clark Gilmore.
