Scholastic Notebook – 04/24/2012
The Ellwood City baseball team fell from the ranks of the unbeatens last week when it dropped a 1-0 decision to Riverside. But Ellwood City still might be having the most impressive season of any team in the WPIAL – at least in terms of statistics. Ellwood City is now 12-1 on the season. In 12 of those 13 games, Ellwood City has given up two runs or fewer. Five of the wins have come by shutouts. Christian Kerns has been the main stopper for Ellwood City this season. He had been 13-0 over the past two seasons until taking the loss against Riverside. Anthony Carusone also has been stellar on the mound. Ellwood City and Riverside are now tied for the Section 5 lead. Maybe Ellwood City is smarting a little after going 15-5 last season, but missing the WPIAL playoffs. The Undefeateds:

Hometown Softball Program Game Recap – Montour – April 22, 2012
April 22, 2012
On a day more suited for ducks,and fish the crew from MSA SPORTS went to Fairhaven Park in Kennedy Township for a Hometown Softball broadcast between the home standing Montour Spartans and the visiting Chartiers Valley Colts. Unfortunately for the Spartans in their inaugural Hometown softball broadcast the scoreboard and weather would not be kind to them as they took a tough loss 14-5 in six innings.The game was called by the umpire after the 6th due to the poor condition of the field. Chartiers Valley scored four runs in the 1st, one in the 4th, and 2 in the 5th but only led 7-5 as the Spartans answered with runs each time the Colts scored.In the first inning Montour plated a run as Megan Vacco was hit by a pitch and with two outs Allison Reidel hit an RBI double to make it 4-1.In the second  with one out Tori Roman the Spartans 1st baseman hit a booming HR to left field to cut the lead again to 4-2.

MSA Sports Hometown Softball Program Salute – ELIZABETH FORWARD WARRIORS
April 21, 2012
Belle Vernon and Thomas Jefferson are in good shape for a playoff spot in the WPIAL Class AAA Section 3 and are in the hunt for a section championship. But at the midway point, both teams are looking up in the standings at the Elizabeth Forward Warriors. Not bad for a program that missed out on the postseason the last two years. But EF does have a successful recent history. The Warriors played in the 2007 WPIAL Class AAA championship game where they lost to Belle Vernon 3-1. In 2008, the Warriors advanced to the district Semifinals before falling to eventual champion Ellwood City. Elizabeth Forward coach Harry Rutherford's young team hopes to make history as they head into the second half of this season having won two in a row and five of their last seven games.SENIORS:

Hometown Softball Program Game Recap – South Allegheny – 04/21/2012
A year ago, South Allegheny hit a good stride going into the WPIAL playoffs and, despite earning only a 13-seed, went on to qualify for the PIAA playoffs by winning the Class AA Consolation game. This year, it appears that the Gladiators are again hitting that stride.Behind a terrific comeback, South Allegheny (5-4, 4-2) knocked off Greensburg Central Catholic (7-3, 5-2) 5-4 in 8 innings on Thursday evening in Glassport. The Gladiators, who fell to GCC 14-2 earlier in the season, came out much more determined in this contest, as star hitter Taylor Geary would go 4-4, pushing her batting overage for the year to over .650, as well as scoring 3 runs, including the game winner. Sarah Jacobs, despite giving up the 4 runs, pitched magnificently towards the end of the game and kept GCC in check, leaving base runners stranded several times.
