New Oxford and Red Land Set To Play For Region 4 Championship Berth

It's been a long summer for teams from around the state and country.  As the degrees on the thermometer have inched higher, so have the number of innings logged by teams in search of continuing their playoff push.  In Region 4, New Oxford and Red Land have emerged as the lone unbeatens in a tournament that has featured a good deal of offense.  


New Oxford, the York County representative, took on host Fredericksburg in their first tournament contest on Saturday.  They put up the tournament's most impressive offensive display yet with a 17-3 rout.  Things got quite a bit tougher in game two as the team took on an Ephrata team that had just knocked off regional power Hummelstown the day before.  In a much closer contest, New Oxford was able to score one more run and win the game by a 10-9 margin.


Cumberland County native Red Land has posted two impressive wins so far in the tournament.  With an eleven run offensive output, they were able to top Waynesboro, a team which came into the tournament as one of the favorites for the title.  Waiting in the second round was Southwestern York.  If you hadn't heard, their participation in the tournament was in jeopardy as they waited on a legion decision to reschedule their first round game as they attended the funeral of a high school friend early Saturday.  Red Land wasn't able to slow down Southwestern's bats too much, but their own high powered offense took care of things in a 14-13 thriller.


The two teams will play this evening with a guaranteed spot in the Region 4 Tournament championship game.  The winner would have to be defeated twice over the span of the next two days and would have the luxury of playing in the proverbial 'throw away' game on Tuesday.  Check back for updates on this contest and others from around the state!
