Dialog reporter

 

WILMINGTON – St. Elizabeth’s baseball team had at least two runners on base in six of the final seven innings of its nine-inning affair with Newark Charter on April 20, but after scoring twice in the third, the Vikings were hamstrung in every attempt to plate another. A combination of shaky baserunning, good defense and plain bad luck conspired against the home team.

But that ended in the ninth, when Nate Moyer’s check swing single to right-center scored Brett Brooks with the winning run in a 3-2 decision over the Patriots, who entered the contest at Canby Park with a six-game winning streak and ranked eighth and fifth in two of the three major statewide polls. Moyer’s hit brought jubilation – and a bit of relief – out of the Vikings, who had watched multiple other opportunities to score evaporate. Read more »
