Dorsey, Maiers arms dominate Elkins in sweep for 22-5 Romney

ELKINS, W.Va. — Colton Dorsey and Matt Maiers provided Romney Post 91 with outstanding pitching performances Saturday during a doubleheader it swept from Elkins in American Legion action.

Dorsey gave up two singles and had no walks during a 2-0 shutout win in the early game, and Maiers did his best to match him by allowing six hits and getting three strikeouts as Romney finished the afternoon with a 9-0 victory.

Now 22-5, Romney plays another doubleheader today at Buckhannon.

Hunter Jenkins drove in one run with a single and Cole Smith scored Dane Heavener for the second run as Romney could scrap together only four hits of its own.

Romney’s offense was a bit sharper the second time out, scoring four runs in the second to help it build a 6-0 lead after three innings.

Smith went 3 for 4 with a double and one RBI, and Jamison Jones hit a double and a single to drive in two. Shane Ennis had two singles and an RBI, and Tyler Conley drove in one run with a single. David Delawder had a double and two RBIs, and Josh Bane singled home a run.
