VFW 15-16 Teener League: Penns Valley, Bellefonte split tournament games

The Penns Valley and Bellefonte Teener League teams split a pair of games Saturday afternoon in the VFW Area 5 15-16 year-old Tournament.

Bellefonte needed one inning to prevail in the opener 9-8, completing a game suspended July 12. Penns Valley took the nightcap 8-2.

Ian Marshall doubled and scored on a Jonny Glunt single for the winning run in the top of the eighth. Marshall then pitched a hitless bottom of the eighth for the win.

In the first part of the game played in Spring Mills, Penns Valley led 7-4 entering teh seventh when Bellefonte rallied with four runs to take the lead. Wyatt Sharp then forced extra innings — and the suspension — with a two-out homer to tie it. Taylor Butts had hit a solo home run earlier in the game for Bellefonte.

Bellefonte led 2-0 early in the second contest before a five-run fourth inning put Penns Valley in the lead for good and a Sharp home run helped pad the lead. Hunter Ilgen had two hits and earned the win on the mound.
