Wall 3 Hopewell Valley 1 – Central Group 3 Semifinals
Following their first ever County Title win fourth seed Hopewell Valley’s next task would be even tougher as they faced top seed Wall, who had Ace Trey Dombroski on the mound. Dombroski in his Junior season has been worth the price of admission in 2018 as he allowed just three runs all year heading into Tuesday’s Central Group 3 Semifinal game. Wall took an early 1-0 lead in the first before going ahead 3-0 in the fifth off Dylan Richey and Grant Shulman RBI’s. However, Trey Dombroski stole the performance with his 8 strike out performance that allowed just 5 hits and 1 earned run to send the Crimson Knights to the Central Group 3 Final where they will face defending Champs, third seed Allentown on 6/1. Watch the highlights and post game interview with Dombroski afterwards now:
