Getting the Lions' share

Boonsboro likely to split with pending reversal

Boonsboro likely to split with pending reversal

May 10, 2002|BY DAN SPEARS

The regular season is over, but its chase for a Monocacy Valley Athletic League baseball title is not - yet.

Walkersville closed the league schedule on Thursday with a 5-1 victory over Smithsburg and completed the 18-game schedule with a 13-5 record, two wins ahead of second-place Boonsboro.

However, the Warriors will likely get to reverse Monday's nine-inning loss to Catoctin, after the Cougars learned that pitcher T.J. Eiker had thrown too many innings - 2/3 of an inning over the maximum of 15 - in a week's time.

Catoctin coach Mike Franklin has sent a letter explaining the situation, and his team's probable forfeit, to school and league administrators.

The only expected action is a change in the standings, which would make Boonsboro 12-4. The Warriors finished the season with two games suspended in a tie score, one with South Hagerstown and the other with Francis Scott Key.

Boonsboro is not the only team to not complete all 18 games in a rainy spring. South also completed just 16 games; it lost an early season matchup with Middletown. A win in that game from the Knights would have moved them into a tie for third place with Catoctin and Smithsburg.
