Top Ten In '10: Millcreek Makes A Run

Millcreek has made a name for themselves throughout the western part of the state over the last several years by representing region eight at the annual PA Legion State Tournament.  Despite their success locally, they've had a tough time breaking through on the state's biggest stage with an overall record of 1-8.  Millcreek once again qualified for the state tournament this season by defeating St. Mary's in the region eight championship game.

When the bracket was handed to the team prior to July's tournament, they could not have been all that excited with the draw they had received.  Looming in the first round was a matchup with Spring City, a team many believed to be destined for the state title.  Despite trailing by four runs in the sixth inning, Millcreek rallied for five straight runs and the victory.  The win certainly amounted to Erie County champs' biggest win in team history.

Millcreek ran in to a very good, and hot, Pennridge squad in game two.  They were unable to hold Pennridge in check, allowing sixteen runs in a seven inning mercy rule defeate.  Much like they had done the rest of the season, the team from northwest PA showed their resiliency by knocking off a very tough Upper Dauphin team in their third game of the tournament.  The five run shutout cemented this year's tournament showing as the team's best ever, with the possibility to expand on that the following day.

Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end.  Despite making it to Friday afternoon, Millcreek was unable to get by the four time defending state champion Boyertown.  They were defeated 11-3 and eliminated from this year's tournament.  Millcreek ended up going 2-2 in the tournament and was the only team to defeat eventual champion Spring City.  Their performance was certainly worthy of a top ten in '10 award!
