Falcons stop Hazleton in PIAA championships; meet Archbishop Ryan in quarterfinals

Posted

Lower Dauphin star pitcher Ava Bottaglia shut out Hazleton Area on two hits as the Falcons beat the Cougars, 2-0, in the first round of the PIAA Class AAAA championships on Monday, June 2 at Wilkes University in Edwardsville.

 

Bottaglia, a freshman, struck out three batters and pitched a complete game, getting Hazleton (20-3), the District 2 champ, out in order in the seventh inning to clinch the victory.

 

She stopped the Cougars on the very field where they staged a two-run rally to eliminate Williamsport, 4-3, in the District 2 title game almost a week ago.

 

The Falcons (19-5), the District 3 runners-up, advance to the state quarterfinals against Archbishop Ryan, the District 12 champion, on Thursday, June 5 at a time and site to be announced. Archbishop Ryan eliminated North Penn, 6-0.
