Tigers claw Northwest, 9-2

5-run fourth pushes Tigers into PIAA Quarterfinals


by Ed Weaver - June 7, 2016

The North Penn-Mansfield Tigers advanced to the PIAA state quarterfinals with a 9-2 win over Northwest on Monday, June 6 at Hanover Area High School.

“It was a great game between two good teams,” said Mansfield head coach Matt Perry. “We executed a lot, and we executed well.”

After a scoreless first inning Northwest’s Bryce Harrison and Austin Ford both scored to give the Rangers a 2-0 lead after the second, but Mansfield came alive in the top half of the third. J.P. Shaw and Kipp Hillson both singled to start the inning, then Eli Compton scored while pinch running for Shaw on a Carl Dinger RBI single. Hillson scored later to tie it at 2-2 when Dylan Williamson drew a walk with the bases loaded.

Mansfield took control of the game in the fourth as Brendan Hill singled to lead off the inning, then Shaw singled to score Hill from second to give the Tigers the lead. From then on the Tigers never looked back and extended their lead in the inning as Compton, Wesneski, Dinger, and Williamson all scored to make it 7-2. The Tigers added to their lead in the fifth when Wesneski hit a leadoff single, then Dinger drew a walk to get two runners aboard. Wesneski stole third to put runners on the corners, then scored on an attempted pick-off throw to first to make it 8-2.

Mansfield scored their final run in the seventh as Wesneski singled, then stole second. The throw to second was off the mark, allowing Wesneski to get to third, then slide safe into home for the final run and the 9-2 win.

“We were patient, and we battled back and just kept chipping away,” Perry said after the first. “When we were down 2-0 I wasn’t real excited but it was nice to get a couple more runs (in the fourth) and get back in the lead.”

Dinger went 4-for-5 at the plate with 2 RBI’s to lead the Tigers, Hill was 3-for-5, Dewey Wise was 2-for-4, and Shaw and Wesneski were both 2-for-5. Shaw went the distance on the mound, scattering 5 hits and striking out 6 for his fourth win of the post-season.

“J.P. has been going out and throwing strikes and gives us a chance to win every game and I can’t ask for more than that,” Perry concluded.

The win advances the Tigers into the state quarterfinals Thursday, June 9 against District 12 champion Neumann-Goretti at a time and location to be determined.
