Lehigh Valley League Readies for Playoffs
The eight team playoff field for the Lehigh Valley League has been set following Tuesday night's games. The playoff tournament will begin on Thursday, with four first round games played at the fields of the higher seeds. Regular season champion Northern Valley, which has already secured a berth to the regional tournament, will be the one seed and will host Southern Lehigh at Northwestern High School at 5:45. Seven seed Coplay will travel to Orefield Middle School to take on two seed North Parkland, also at 5:45. South Parkland, the three seed, will host number six Lower Macungie at Parkland High School. That game will also be a 5:45 start. The final first round game will be a 7pm start at Harry Glasser Field, the home of four seed Fullerton. Fullerton will host West Allentown, the fifth seed. The double elimination tournament will continue Friday.
The winner of the tournament will join regular season champion Northern Valley in the regional at Nor-Gwyn. Should Northern Valley also win the playoff title, the playoff runner-up would secure the league's second regional bid.
