The Lehigh Township Connie Mack team is headed to the playoffs.
While games were rained out Monday, things are expected to get under way Tuesday - if the weather permits.
LT will take on Nazareth in a best-of-three series. The winner will advance to states.
"One thing that I love with this team is they are fighters," said first-year head coach Tom Onusconich. "We have had nine, one-run games with us being on the losing end six times. But these kids, they don't give up. I am glad we made it into the playoffs because these kids deserve it.
Moore Township's Connie Mack team had a big victory Monday night, knocking off Freemansburg 10-5.
The win came thanks to some fantastic pitching from Daniel Thomas and Nick Demeiri, according to head coach Bob Brooks.
Thomas went three-and-two-thirds innings, and was on the short end of some calls, according to his coach. Demeiri came in with the bases loaded and the game tied at 5-5 and didn't allow another run to score to help give Moore the momentum the rest of the way.
While the solid pitching was going on, the bats also came alive.
Moore Township head coach Robert Brooks is excited about his group of Connie Mack players this season.
With some strong leaders, and the team recently notching its first victory of the season, it's all for good reason.
"We have a lot of potential, I just need to get it out of them and hopefully continue our winning ways," Brooks said. "Every game in Connie Mack season is important. Every team is competitive."
Moore is led by Jesse Yeuntch, and Brooks has high praise for him.
