Phoenixville 6, Methacton 2

Kendall Brown’s 2021 mound debut proved a stellar one, leading the Phantoms over the Warriors in Thursday’s PAC divisional crossover game.

Back from an injury, the senior threw a three-hit complete game with six strikeouts against five walks. She was also Phoenixville’s batting star, her 2-for-2 outing headed by a home run and triple along with two RBI.


Pottsgrove 4, Pope John Paul II 3

With all the scoring completed in the first two innings Thursday, the Falcons’ first-inning edge proved their margin of victory over the Golden Panthers.

Mikayla Eckman was a two-way star for Pottsgrove on the mound and at the plate, throwing a 10-strikeout complete game and driving in two runs. Alex DiCampello gave PJP a 2-for-4, one-RBI bat.

PJP got three-hit outings from Gavin Feulner and Brendan Kenning to support winning pitcher Nik Rubendall in Thursday’s PAC Frontier Division win, with D.J. Clarke picking up the save off one frame of no-hit pitching.

The Falcons saw Steve Rinda’s 11-strikeout pitching go for naught.


Upper Merion 7, Pottstown 3

Brad Zielinski was a two-way standout for the Vikings as they outlasted the Trojans in PAC Frontier Division play Thursday.

Zielinski got the pitching win off 5-1/3 innings’ work — Brandon Colon went the final 1-2/3 to get the save — and he contributed a 3-for-3 bat. Oscar Brenes added a three-RBI outing while Pottstown’s Gabe Hicks went a team-best 3-for-4.


Perkiomen School 15, New Foundations 0

Carlos Quinones was a two-way star for the Panthers Thursday, pitching and hitting them past New Foundations in Penn Jersey Athletic Association play.
