Voorhees Ends Spotswood's Run In NJSIAA Tournament


OLD BRIDGE, NJ - Looking for a deep run in the NJSIAA Central Jersey Group Two Tournament, the third seeded Spotswood High School varsity baseball team was upset by sixth seeded Voorhees High School, 6-2 in the quarterfinal round. George Eberle gave up seven hits and two runs in six and two third innings on the mound, earning the win. Matt Vento, Andrew Fuzesi and Chris Auciello gave up a combined seven hits and six runs in the game for Spotswood. Vento was tagged with the loss.

Spotswood took a two-run lead in the second inning, but by the fourth inning the game was knotted at two runs apiece. Voorhees took the lead in the fifth and added two insurance runs in the sixth.

Dylan Seel was two-for-three for Spotswood as was Ryan Szatkowski. Szatkowski and Vinnie Guardiola scored the runs for the Chargers.

Voorhees will move on in the tournament to face second seeded South Plainfield High School on Wednesday, May 31.

Despite their surprising losses in the Greater Middlesex Conference and NJSIAA Central Jersey Group Two Tournament, the Chargers had a successful 2017 season. The Chargers claimed their first Greater Middlesex Conference Blue Division title in a decade, finishing the season with a 20-5 overall record. They were 11-1 in league play.

The Chargers have one game remaining on the schedule. Weather permitting, Spotswood will take on East Brunswick in the Commander's Cup. The game was originally set to be played on May 6, but has been delayed by rain twice. First pitch is set for 4 p.m. at the Spotswood High School Varsity Baseball Field on Wednesday, May 31. The Commander's Cup holds a special place in the heart of Spotswood High School head baseball coach, Glenn Fredricks as well as the players. The winner gets to keep the trophy for one year and of course, gets the bragging rights.
