SEVERAL AREA BASEBALL TEAMS HAVE HIGH HOPES FOR COMING DISTRICT PLAYOFFS (2024-05-17)

Northern Tier Sports Report
The District IV baseball playoffs have arrived, and it features one of the most competitive brackets in some time.

CLASS AA

All eight teams in this bracket all have reasons to believe they could be the champions at the end of the day.


Top seed Montgomery finished with just two losses on the season, one being to South Williamsport. 


Second seed Troy comes in on a 6-game win streak, third seed South Williamsport has wins over playoff teams Montgomery, Muncy, Troy, and Canton.


Fourth seed Canton swept Troy this year, fifth seed and defending district champions, Wyalusing, has wins over Canton, Troy, and South Williamsport, and sixth seed Muncy beat Canton earlier this year, and only lost to South by one.


Seventh seed Southern Columbia plays one of the toughest schedules in the bracket, and boasts a 12-0 win over Loyalsock.


Even eighth seed Northwest beat Muncy this year, and lost a close game with top seed Montgomery.


The first round games will be on Saturday and the game of the day has to be Wyalusing at Canton, with the first pitch slated for 4 p.m.


The Rams recently beat Canton 4-2 in extra innings, which says all that needs to be said about what to expect from this match-up. The winner gets the winner of Montgomery and Northwest.


Troy will welcome Southern Columbia at 1:30 p.m. on Saturday in what’s a tough match-up for the 2-seed. Ironically, both were supposed to face-off in the first round of the Shamokin Tournament before it was rained out.


They’ll get the winner of South Williamsport and Muncy.


The semifinals will be played on Wednesday at a neutral site, with the finals on Saturday, May 25 at noon on Bowman Field.


CLASS A

NEB will defend their district title against Millville on Friday, May 24 at 4 p.m on Bowman Field.


They have a few common opponents, as Millville beat Canton 8-7 with the Panthers getting swept by the Warriors.


Both teams also have wins over Sullivan County, Benton, and St. John Neumann.
