Northern Tier Sports Report
Area baseball and softball teams are starting to catch-up to their schedules, though a few still have a ways to go. The good news is the weather looks more cooperative this week - with just Wednesday and Saturday showing a hint of rain. The highlight for the week is Wyalusing’s Lasagna Invitational Friday, which features some top competition from Districts II and IV.


Monday, April 22

Towanda (3-3) at South Williamsport (7-1), 4:30 p.m.: A tough test for the Knights as they take on the defending district champions in Class AA. Towanda is coming off a big win over Athens with South seeing their 7-game win streak ending against Loyalsock.

CV (9-1) at NEB (5-3), 4:30 p.m.: A make-up from the season opening weekend. The Panthers lost to CV just this past Friday, and will look to even things up in the NTL standings when they host them this time.

Wyalusing (4-5) at Susquehanna, 4:30 p.m.: The Rams have gotten themselves back in playoff contention thanks to a 4-2 week last week. With three games this week they’ll look to get over .500.

Tuesday, April 23

Troy (6-1) at Athens (2-4), 4:30 p.m.: Troy eked out a 4-2 win when they hosted Athens in their season opener. They’ve been a roll since then while the Wildcats have struggled to win close games.

Canton (3-7) at CV (9-1), 4:30 p.m.: Canton went 2-1 last week as they claw their way back to .500. CV gave them their worst loss of the season a month ago, so it’ll be a good test to see how far they’ve come.

NEB (5-3) at Williamson (1-7), 4:30 p.m.: Despite their record Williamson has proved to be a pesky team, and the Panthers escaped with a home win the last time they played. Williamson will be looking to break a six game losing streak.

Wednesday, April 24

Wyalusing (4-5) at Towanda (3-3), 4:30 p.m.: Towanda had their way with the Rams in the season opener, beating them 23-3, as both teams come in off big wins to end the week.

Friday, April 26

Wyalusing (4-5) at Troy (6-1), 4:30 p.m.: The Trojans pulled away to win the first game 15-0 back in March, and are coming off a big double-header win over Wellsboro. This week will be good measuring stick for the Rams to see how far they’ve come since then.

Canton (3-7) at NEB (5-3), 4:30 p.m.: The Panthers won the first match 18-3, and a broke a 3-game losing streak with their win against Sullivan County. Canton is coming off an equally big win over Sayre as they try to make a second half push.

NP-Liberty (9-0) at Towanda (3-3), 4:30 p.m.: The Knights gave NPL a fight in their first meeting, falling just 4-0. That’s the closest game Liberty has played all season.

Saturday, April 27

NEB (5-3) at South Williamsport (7-1), 1 p.m.: A tough test to end the week for the Panthers as they face the defending district champions. South has beaten Wyalusing this year, and takes on Towanda earlier in the week.

Tuesday, April 23

Troy (7-2) at Athens (4-5), 4:30 p.m.: Troy ended last week strong with two double-header sweeps as they look to tighten their grip on the NTL Division-I standings. Athens has been up and down this year, and lost to Troy in the season opener.

Wednesday, April 24

Wyalusing (5-3) at Towanda (2-7), 4:30 p.m.: An exciting Saturday of baseball for the Rams as they went 1-1 in two walk-off finishes. Towanda will be looking to right the ship after some close losses, including this one, a 3-2 defeat back in March.

Friday, April 26

Wyalusing (5-3) at Troy (7-3), 4:30 p.m.: The Trojans held on to beat the Rams 11-7 earlier this season and will look for the season sweep. Not only is the NTL Division-I title on the line, but also a potential home playoff game.

Canton (8-3) at NEB (6-3), 4:30 p.m.: Canton won the first meeting 10-2 but it was closer than that for much of the way. This is probably the Panthers’ last shot to try and get back in the NTL Division-II race as the Warriors come into the week unbeaten in league play.

NPM (7-4) at Towanda (2-7), 4:30 p.m.: Towanda will be looking for a season sweep, having beaten the Tigers 11-5 over at their place back in March. NPM has lost three of their last four after a strong start.
