Perkiomen Beats Quakertown and Mother Nature to move on to Bux-Mont Final
The heavy rain that passed through the area on Saturday led to postponements and delays through the eastern part of the state. The three Bux-Mont League playoff games scheduled for Quakertown were pushed back, but were able to be played thanks to the great work by the grounds crew. Hatfield stayed alive in the first game of the day by defeating Pottstown 8-7. Another one run game followed, as Pennridge eliminated the Doylestown Tigers 10-9. In the night cap, eight seed Perkiomen dropped the hosts 14-4 in a game that didn't end until early Sunday morning.
Saturday's results set up the schedule for Sunday. Pennridge will meet Quakertown in a loser's bracket contest at 3pm. Perkiomen, the sole remaining undefeated team, plays Hatfield at 7pm. Win or lose, Perkiomen will play for the league title. The winner of the tournament advances to Saturday's Region Two Tournament, joining regular season champ Nor-Gwyn.
