WPIAL Runner-Up Chartiers Valley Settles for PIAA Runner-Up


Schofield, Paul, Tribune-Review/Pittsburgh Tribune-Review


ALTOONA - A slow start proved costly to Chartiers Valley's attempt at winning a PIAA Class AAA baseball title.

The Colts (16-8), the WPIAL's runner-up, saw their seventh- inning rally come up short in a 3-2 loss to Abington Heights (20-3) on Friday at Blair County Ballpark.

Chartiers Valley, which trailed 3-0 going into the bottom of the seventh, scored two runs and had the tying run at third base with one out. But Abington Heights reliever Peter Doggett struck out Andy McIntyre and got Ken Terpack to ground out to end the game.

"We lost our approach early in the game," Chartiers Valley coach Jim Jaskowski said. "We lost what we normally do at the place. We just weren't ourselves.

"We got back into it, but it was too late."

Chartiers Valley had trouble solving Abington Heights lefthander Steve Mills. The Colts only had two hits in the first five innings and had two runners picked off.

"It was the best he has thrown all season," Abington Heights coach Bill Zalewski said of Mills, who tossed a one-hitter in the PIAA quarterfinals against Upper Merion. "He's been hot in the playoffs."

Chartiers Valley finally chased Mills in the sixth inning after McIntrye reached on a walk and Terpack singled with two outs.
