Area Roundup - Indians eliminated in Pa. District 5

May 31, 2002


EVERETT, Pa. - Southern Fulton's season came to an end Thursday with a 5-3 loss to Northern Bedford in the Pa. Class A District 5 title game, but the loss couldn't keep keep Indians coach Mike Shade from complimenting the efforts of his team over the past season.

"Of course, today was a disappointment because it was the District 5 Championship," Shade said. "But when you look back over the entire year, I am very proud of my team."

Jody Appel had two hits for Southern Fulton (18-5) and Nikkia Watson had an RBI triple in the third inning, but a four-run fifth inning from Northern Bedford eventually did the Indians in.

"This team exceeded my expectations," Shade said. "They really worked hard. ... I am really pleased with how the season went overall. This was a fantastic year."
