The Union City Lady Bears had a two-run homer by Eliza Reynolds leading to a 7-1 win over Saegertown at Allegheny College’s Robertson Complex. Union City improves to 17-2 and heads to the District 10 championship game on Monday where it will face Wilmington. The time and location have yet to be determined.
Union City pitcher Abby Tingley dominated on the mound again for the Bears. She allowed just three hits and one unearned run. She walked one batter.
“Momentum is such a big deal,” Union City coach Jerry VanZandt said. “We were the home team and we were glad to be the home team, but that comes with a little bit of anxiety. Because if that first inning doesn’t go well and the momentum shifts, they get to bat first. To get out of that inning, that was key. That was big time.”
