They Top Emmorton Twice

Five Other Teams Win Titles

July 21, 1991

Edgewood's 13-17 girls beat Emmorton twice to take their fourth championship in a row in the Harford County Softball Tournament final Monday night.

Edgewood came out of the losers bracket after falling to Bel Air early in the tournament, so the girls had to win two games against Emmorton to take the title. They topped Emmorton, 6-2 and 15-4, at the Forest Hill Recreation Complex.

Edgewood was just one of six teams to win championships last weekend and early this week as the countywide youth tournaments in softball and baseball concluded.

Fallston won the 11-12 softball title with an undefeated season. The team beat Bel Air, 10-9, Sunday at the Edgewood Recreation Complex.

Manager John Wirth's Fallston squad trailed, 9-8, going into the final inning. After Karen Tiedemann singled, Emily Wible hit a game-winning two-run homer. Julie Clark had smacked a three-run homer earlier in the game for the winners.

In the9-10 championship, however, Bel Air got its revenge, beating Fallston, 10-8. Fallston had the tying run on base with two outs in the final inning, but Bel Air pitcher Alison Healy struck out the final batter.

Fallston held a 6-5 lead going into the fifth inning, but hits from Bel Air's Healy, Heidi Buchanan, Jennifer Westervelt and Beckie Durante led to three runs.

In baseball action, Bel Air Blue won the 9-10 division, defeating Emmorton, 16-9, Monday night at William S.James Elementary School.

Chris Reynolds pitched a complete game for Bel Air. Jon Sobus led the attack with a home run, and Brad Glascock, Paul Isbell, Adam Letschin, Nate Weigl and Bobby Winter all had multiple hits.

In the 11-12 championship game played Wednesday night in Edgewood, Forest Hill Red knocked off Edgewood, 5-4, to win for the second straight year.

Edgewood beat Bel Air, 6-5, to advance to the semifinals Monday night and beat previously undefeated Forest Hill Red, 11-6, to force the final game.

Mike Jenkins, voted ForestHill's most valuable player, drove in the winning run in the fifth inning. Kevin Rosso, Ross Butler and Kevin Shaw also had RBI. Darren Gryzb scored two runs.

In the 13-14 championship game, Bel Air defeated Edgewood, 10-6, Monday night.
