Baseball: C.R. South downs Coatesville in states

Behind a five-hitter from senior lefty Bret DeStefano, Council Rock South downed Coatesville, 5-1, Thursday in a PIAA Class AAAA state baseball quarterfinal at Spring-Ford High in Royersford.

The Golden Hawks did all of their scoring in the second quarter. Zach Fitzgerald ripped a two-run triple to right-center field and Jeff Miller added a two-run double to right.

Jake Kennedy, with a solo home run in the fourth, accounted for the Red Raiders' only run.

The 6-foot, 165-pound DeStefano, who is headed to Kutztown, struck out six and walked two.

In another quarterfinal, Hatboro-Horsham blanked District 2 champ Wyoming Valley West, 2-0, at Parkland High in Allentown.
