All-Stars face Tigers for Championship

Chilson's walk-off hit takes it for Tunkhannock


by John Vogt - July 15, 2015

The Wellsboro All-Stars ended their amazing season last night in Tunkhannock as they played for the Section 15 Championship.

The Tigers scored first in the bottom half of the second inning on a passed ball. Tyler Bell crossed the plate, giving the Tigers their first run of the game. Tunkhannock held that lead until the top of the 4th when another passed ball brought Sam Rudy home as Wellsboro tied things up.

This game turned into a real pitchers battle as bats were held silent for both teams throughout most of the game.

Then in the first half of the 6th inning the Wellsboro All-Stars rallied when Connor Adams hit a long drive off the fence in right field for a double. Connors’ smash came within an inch or two from being a home run. Two batters later, Cameron Brought hit a dribbler down the first baseline, scoring Adams and putting the All-Stars on top, 2 to 1.

The Wellsboro All-Stars, who all played a great game, were just 3 outs away from the championship when a very determined Tunkhannock Tigers came to bat. Tyler Bell started things off with a walk, putting the tying run on first. Then Patrick Munley smacked a double into center field, putting runners on second and third. Ben Chilson became the hero for the Tigers, driving in the winning run and bringing home the Section 15 Championship to the Tunkhannock Tigers.

Both teams were recognized for their accomplishments by receiving first and second place pins. Tunkhannock also received the Section 15 banner, commemorating their win.

During the second half of today’s broadcast we talk with Josh Brown, Ben Chilson and both coaches.

On behalf of all of us here at Home Page Sports – we applaud the Wellsboro All-Stars and their Manager Steve Adams on a wonderful season and congratulate the Tunkhannock Tigers and their Manager Chris DeMarco on their Section 15 championship.
