The South Parkland Connie Mack team reached the midpoint of its season with nine wins, one loss, and a question: would the Trojans carry their near-perfect record into the postseason, or would they falter in their nine final games and allow it to slip away?
After finishing the regular season at 17-2, the Trojans have proved themselves the frontrunner for this year’s league title. The team entered the postseason at the top of the league standings, three wins ahead of its closest competition.
In their second matchup, the South Parkland Connie Mack Baseball team walked onto the field hoping to rebound from a bitter 6-4 loss to Bethlehem Catholic in the season opener. The defeat had stung, especially for an experienced group of players who knew they had championship potential.
But the humbling experience must have awoken something in the team, because in the nine innings that followed, South Parkland blew away its opposition, Lehigh-Bethlehem, by a score of 13-3, dashing whatever doubt had crept into their minds following that game against Bethlehem Catholic.
