West Seneca’s postseason run ends in regional championship game
Thursday August 15, 2013 | By:Michael J. Petro | Sports
The West Seneca Post 735 baseball team nearly made another comeback to advance through a tournament, but fell short of that in a 9 – 6 loss to the host Brooklawn, N.J. squad in the American Legion Mid-Atlantic Regionals championship game on Aug. 12.
Similar to the state championship tournament, West Seneca began double-elimination play with a loss, before fighting back with three state wins, including a 6 – 1 victory against the Delaware state champion on Aug. 11, to advance to the final. Post 735 had won five straight elimination games to earn a state title. After a 6 – 2 loss to the state champion from Pennsylvania on Aug. 8, West Seneca followed that with a 8 – 5 win against Maryland the next day and then beat West Virginia 10 – 5 on Aug. 10.
St. Francis graduate Paul Wujek, who now plays for Hilbert College, was among three players to hit .400 or better, during the regional tournament. Bill Sulkowski of Orchard Park threw a complete game for the win against Delaware. Mike Prentice, a 2013 St. Francis graduate, also contributed to the club.
