HILLSDALE, NJ – The Roxbury High School baseball team’s season, and its hopes for a state championship, came to a damp end on March 30 when it lost a state tournament semifinal game to Pascack Valley High School.

After a promising start in which the Gaels opened the scoring with two runs in the second inning, fifth-seeded Roxbury fought hard but couldn’t overcome a fifth inning go-ahead-run by the top-seeded Indians.

The pitching duel ended with Pascack Valley winning 3-2 and heading to a state tournament dual with Morris Hills on Friday.

Roxbury pitcher Donovan Brady pitched a great game, but a 2-out,, bottom-of-the-fifth hit by Pascack Valley pitcher Riley Weis allowed the winning run to score. Brady struck out five batters, walked none and allowed only seven hits.

Roxbury finishes the year 18-8.
