Upper Moreland falls in final

STATE COLLEGE - Held to four hits and a first-inning run, Upper Moreland bowed to District 3’s West York, 2-1, in the PIAA Class AAA state final Friday at Penn State’s Medlar Field at Lubrano Park.

With the aid of a catcher’s-interference call, the Bulldogs (21-8) scored both of their runs in the top of the second. The deciding run came on a squeeze bunt.

Junior righthander Eddie Decker went the distance for the Golden Bears (21-5-1), allowing eight hits and walking two.

In the first, after drawing a one-out walk, Upper Moreland’s Robert Knox moved to third base on Charlie Hooker’s double and scored on Pat Driscoll’s ground out.
