CRESSON- The season quietly came to an end for the MIfflin County baseball team as they fell to a tough Erie McDowell team Tuesday at Mount Aloysius, falling 6-5.

The Huskies jumped out to a fast 5-2 advantage early on but a one-run fourth and then three-run sixth was too much for MIfflin County to overcome.

Mifflin County got a strong showing at the plate by Ryan Kanagy who went 2-for-2 with two runs scored.

All-in-all, the Huskies pounded out seven hits on the afternoon.

Picking up hits for Mifflin County were Xavier Smith, Jayden Smith, Madden Weaver, Tye Plank and Tucker Gill.

McDowell opened the contest posting two runs in the top of the first.

The Huskies took their two runs and raised them a run, scoring three in the bottom of the inning to take the 3-2 advantage.

Kanagy started with a walk to lead things off.

With one out, Xavier Smith walked.

Brother Jaden Smith, took a pitch for the team as he was plunked by a McDowell pitch, loading the bases.

Calin McKnight hit a sacrifice fly to score Kanagy and move the other runners up a base.

Xavier Smith scored on a wild pitch while Jayden Smith moved up to third.

Plank scored Jayden Smith on a single.

Mifflin County added two more runs in the second.

Farrell Souders reached on an Erie error.

Kanagy moved Souders to third as he smoked a double into right field.

Xavier Smith doubled to score both Souders and Kanagy, making it a 5-2 lead.

However, the momentum shifted in the fourth as Erie scored four uncontested runs to take the contest and end MIfflin County’s magical season.

However, the season the Huskies had was one that won’t soon be forgotten as they left the field as D6 champions. It was a season to be remembered.
