BASEBALL: Faith Christian walks off on Jenkintown

Faith Christian made a jump to join the Bicentennial Athletic League this season and got off on the right foot by defeating its new conference opponent Phil-Mont Christian on Tuesday. Thursday afternoon saw the Lions take the field against another new conference opponent in Jenkintown only this time revenge was on their minds.

Last season Jenkintown pounded Faith Christian 25-0, but this season with both teams having very young rosters the playing field was even and what better way to avenge a blowout than a 5-4 walk off win.

“It’s redemption from last year because they beat us 25-0, so the kids wanted to come out and beat them and we did,” Faith Christian coach Mark Hoover said. “I’m happy, it’s our first year in this league and we’re 2-0.”
