Fielding Problems Overwhelm Knights
Paint Branch Panthers 15 Wheaton Knights 1
Nine official errors and several more misplays made it a long 5 innings, and causing it to be a mercy-rule result in Burtonsville. For whatever reason, a swirling wind, an odd playing surface, or just plain poor play, the Knights seemed unable to stop the ball from finding open space. All the errors and misplays gave the Panthers extra chances, of which they took advantage.
The Knights recorded seven hits on the offensive side, 2 each by Christian Torres, Lee Roy Nchinda, and Michael DePasquale. Anushka Fernando, the starting pitcher also added a single, and certainly deserved better on the mound.
Next up, reigning state champs Northwest at Wheaton Regional at 3 p.m. on Wednesday.
