Friday May 30, 2014 | By:Marquel Slaughter | Sports
In a rematch of last year’s Class A Section VI championship game, No. 5 Williamsville South ended Hamburg’s season, in an 8-1 contest, in Hamburg on May 29.
The Bulldogs came into the Class A1 bracket as the top seed this spring after capturing the ECIC II division title.
Cam Ringo drove in Hamburg’s only run in the game. Jake Mertowski hit a leadoff double at the bottom of the first inning and made it home on Ringo’s sacrifice fly deep into centerfield, responding to the three runs South scored at the top.
Ringo and David recorded the other two hits for Hamburg. Ryan Herr, Ryan Filas and Connor Tucker all shared the circle for the Bulldogs.
Steve Zaprowski pitched a three-hitter in a complete for the visiting Billies, who went on to the New York State Public High School Athletic Association semifinals last spring. He also struck out six batters.
Alex Martin, Billy Hartford and Jacob Huber recorded multi-hit games for South, including Hartford’s two-run home run in the sixth inning.
The Billies will play the winner of Starpoint versus Grand Island on May 31 in the Class A Championship Game.
