Tyler Antonis had a big night as he struck out seven over four innings and also had a pair of hits to go along with three RBIs. Austin Druckenmiller also had a pair of hits, as Moore blew the game open with a seven-run fourth.

For the Northampton baseball team, it proved to be more about the parts than the whole.

The Konkrete Kis finished the season with a 2-1 loss to Pleasant Valley in the opening round of the Class 6A playoffs.

They finished the year with an overall 10-11 record, a season that was a roller coaster in more ways than one.

“It was a trying year,” said head coach Mick Sugra, who finished his eighth year at the helm. “We needed to be more unified as a team. We had five players who weren’t part of our team workouts in the offseason, and they thought it was better.

Wednesday, June 20, 2018 by JEFF MOELLER in Sports

Northampton’s magical ride from a year ago still hasn’t totally lost it luster.

The Konkrete Kids came off one of their finest basketball season in school history, posting an overall 18-9 record with an appearance in the District 11 final and a state playoff showing.

It’s true the Kids have lost 1,000-point plus scorer Aidan Elwood, along with other talented seniors, all of whom helped shape the program the past few years.

But, they got off to a 5-2 start in the Allentown Summer League this spring and can perhaps take some cues about the upcoming season.
