Baseball Team Reaches Friends Schools League Championship Game
The Moorestown Friends School Baseball team (14-2) punched their ticket to a second consecutive Friends Schools League (FSL) championship game with a 10-0 win over visiting Westtown yesterday. The game ended after five innings due to the high school baseball mercy rule.
The Foxes will host Shipley this Saturday at 11 a.m. The Gators dealt MFS their only other loss this season – a 6-3 defeat in April.
In yesterday’s semifinal, Coach Ron Obermeier’s team, the defending FSL champions, struck early and often against hard-throwing Elon University recruit Kevin Hendriksen. The Foxes touched the tall righty for three runs in the first, three runs in the second, and four runs in the third. Leading the offensive charge were the Mullock twins, who are both juniors. Mitchell Mullock (pictured), also the winning pitcher, was 2-2 with five RBI, and Matthew Mullock was 2-3 with three runs scored.
Mitchell Mullock was dominant on the mound, mixing speeds and keeping Moose batters off balance the entire game. He gave up just three hits and struck out three.
The visiting Moose, behind a dominating performance from Hendriksen, had handed the Foxes one of their two losses earlier in the season, with Hendriksen striking out 16 in the 6-3 Westtown victory.
It was also announced today that the Foxes are the top seed in the upcoming NJSIAA Non-Public B South tournament. They will host the winner of #8 Wardlaw-Hartridge/#9 Pingry on May 26.
