Downingtown West 7, Great Valley 0 – Drew Britt fired a five-hit shutout with no walks and 12 strikeouts and Eric Grintz drove in three runs with a single and two-run home run in the first inning as the Whippets claimed their fourth straight Ches-Mont League National Division title Monday.
Aaron Sipes and Dylan DiRocco added two hits apiece for D-West, which blew open a 2-0 lead with five runs in the fourth inning en route to the wire-to-wire crossover victory.
Downingtown East 5, West Chester East 4 – Matt Szepanski’s walk-off RBI-single with one out in the bottom of the seventh inning capped a two-run rally that carried the Cougars to the Ches-Mont League National Division win.
The Vikings had taken a 4-3 in the top of the seventh with four runs, triggered by Tim Becker’s two-out, two-run single and Joey Wileczek’s two-run single. But Szepanski and D-East had the final say after Joe Janick’s RBI-infield single knotted things at 4 for D-East in the seventh.
