LEGION BASEBALL: Souderton falls to Quakertown

Trailing 3-0 after the fourth inning and having only two hits, it looked as though Souderton was going to go down easy against Quakertown Monday night.

Souderton snapped out of its offensive funk and finally got on the board in the fifth inning when Brad Stolzfus hit a sacrifice fly to left field to score Josh Freed. Stolzfuz finished the game 2 for 3 with an RBI.

“I thought we didn’t play very well,” Souderton coach Paul Meara said. “We didn’t show up until the fifth inning, the first four innings we’re sleep walking through it.”

Perhaps the lasting image for Souderton in the fifth inning is not the run it scored but the three runners it left on base when the inning ended. For most of the game Souderton struggled to find the clutch hit it needed it and Quakertown held on to win 4-3.
