Friday's York-Adams League semifinal between Eastern York and Delone Catholic was all about one player, Brandon Knarr.  The sophomore lefty showed why he is ranked #10 in the PA Class of 2017 rankings with a dominant performance on the mound.  Both teams struggled offensively as each managed just four hits but Eastern York was able to score twice and make the lead hold up for the 2-0 win.

Eastern York scored the only two runs of the game thanks to a two RBI single by Colby Shimmel in the bottom of the 4th.  Those two runs were all that Knarr needed as Eastern York advanced to the YAIAA title game against West York, a 3-2 winner over Spring Grove yesterday.

The only player to record multiple hits was Eastern York's Robert Hedrick (2-for-3, 2B, BB, run).  Knarr finished with an impressive seven inning, 19 strikeout, four walk, four hits allowed stat line.
