Tussey Mountain 11,
Four untimely errors contributed to last Wednesday's fall of the McConnellsburg Spartans, who were defeated by the Tussey Mountain Titans during the opening round of District 5-A playoffs. Three Spartans took to the mound, but Tanner Shoop recorded the loss with five strikeouts, four walks, six hits and three earned runs. Nathan Swope and Logan Peck both connected for doubles during the game, and both finished with a pair of hits as did teammate Evan Appleby.
