BROOKVILLE—-Very few high school baseball games are played under the lights in Central Pennsylvania, but the Golden Tide of Curwensville had that opportunity Saturday night in Brookville as they faced the Raiders. Unfortunately for the Tide hitters the lights were a little dim as Brookville’s Greg Sobol one hit the visitors 8-0. Curwensville beat Brookville earlier this season at home 1-0. With the loss the Tide now have a 9-4 record and have a home date with Elk County Catholic (ECC) on Monday afternoon starting at 4:15. The Tide were beaten 7-6 by ECC the first time around on April 30.
Sobol did walk seven Tide batters but Curwensville couldn’t cash in as they were shut out for the first time this season. Designated hitter Trevor Horton had the only base hit, a single, for the Golden Tide. Jacob Nunley, Jeremy Aharrah and Jacob Means paced the Raiders with two hits each. Nunley had a home run, while Aharrah hit a double and pinch hitter Justin Smith stroked a triple for Brookville.
Afterwards Tide head coach Ryan Briskar mentioned that, “Playing under the lights had no effect at all on the outcome of this game. So that is not any kind of excuse, because we didn’t play bad, we just didn’t play great. The guys put the ball in play but Brookville did turn three double plays over the first four innings which really took us out the game somewhat.”
