Win over Kennett gives Indians first Ches Mont American title
KENNETT —For the first time since 2002, the Unionville High School baseball team clinched a league championship, defeating arch-rival Kennett, 13-2, Thursday night at NVF/KAU Field.
The 15-3 Indians (15-2 in Ches Mont play) won their first league title since winning the Southern Chester County League in 2002 with what has become a typical mix of powerful pitching and explosive offense.
Behind a 13-hit attack led by Kyle Fries, the Indians jumped out to a two-run lead in first and never looked back. Fries ended up 2-for-3 with a two-run home run and a double and four RBI. Kyle Langerhans and Nick Godek also hit home runs. Andrew Taylor pitched a five-inning complete game giving up only four hits while striking out six. Taylor also helped himself at the plate going 2-for-3 with a double and an RBI.
Unionville, a lock for post-season play, continues in action Friday at Oxford.
David Villafane homered in the first inning for Kennett (5-13 league) to put the Blue Demons on the scoreboard.
