Elk County League Playoffs Set to Kick Off
Here is the playoff preview for the Elk County League courtesy of site member Elk County Fan1:
Playoffs start in full force next week with Fox taking on Bradford and St. Mary's facing the winner of the Smethport/Kane vs Ridgway game in the best of three series. Both series should be very interesting as Fox Twp and Ridgway have been playing some great baseball as of late. Fox after a 1-4 start to the season has rattled off nine wins in their final 10 games. They enter the playoffs as the hottest team in the league and disposed of Ridgway 10-0 in six innings this past week. Ridgway on the other hand has beaten Bradford two out of three games and has battled St. Mary's on even terms dispite losing two of three games to the St. Mary's squad. St. Mary's has been steady all season long as expected. Bradford has shown signs of a team slowly slipping away. They finished the season with three straight losses to Ridgway, Smethport and St. Mary's. Although they have beaten Fox three times in the regular season they just don't look like the team of the past couple of years. St. Mary's is no doubt the favorite to win the Elk County League with a very deep and talented roster. Bradford is the reigning two year champion and they won't go down easily, but keep your eye on Fox Twp and Ridgway. It wouldn't come as a shock to those close to this league if these two end up in the finals. Best of luck to all teams!
