For Northwest, Dusty Silvis had a hit and two RBI, Dylan Silvis and Brody Wood had the other two hits. Zac Shopene and Greg Conley both walked and scored on Silvis's RBI single in the seventh.
Northwest Savings Bank was missing a number of players again for the game, said coach Rich Shopene.
“We continued to struggle at the plate and in the field,” he admitted. “The team needs to show more patience and discipline at the plate. The fact of baseball is you cannot win if you do not hit the ball and do not field the ball.”
Northwest Savings Bank had to forfeit the game today against Blair because there were not enough players available to field a team.
Northwest ends the regular season at 7-5 as the No. 2 team in the league playoffs that start on Friday. The Bankers will host Youngsville Post 658 at The Ballpark At Columbus. The nine-inning game will start at about 5:30 p.m., dependent on the field availability due to Little League all-star play. If the field is not available, the game will be in Youngsville.
