Blue Ridge forfeits baseball game

District 2 has reviewed materials provided about a pitch count situation from Thursday’s baseball game and determined that Blue Ridge violated PIAA Pitch Count Rules and will therefore forfeit the game.

Montrose has been awarded a 7-0 victory.

The Lackawanna League Division 4 standings and District 2 power ratings have been updated accordingly to reflect the reversal of the result.

Both schools were notified of the decision early Tuesday morning.

The loss eliminates Blue Ridge, formerly the second-place team, from title contention in Lackawanna Division 4. The Raiders’ only hope of tying for first place was if Lackawanna Trail lost to winless Forest City in Tuesday’s league finale.

Elk Lake is the only team left with a hope of catching Lackawanna Trail.
