Alco rolls to title game

Campers thump Bohemia Manor for trip to Aberdeen


FREDERICK — Allegany spotted Bohemia Manor an early lead and then dominated things the rest of the way, rolling to a 9-3 victory in their Class 1A state semifinal Tuesday night at McCurdy Field.

The win puts Allegany (21-3) in the state championship game for the first time since the Campers won the Class 2A title in 1990.

Coach Scott Bauer’s team will play Cambridge-South Dorchester in this year’s state final which, according to the MPSSAA website, is scheduled for Saturday, at 1 p.m., at Ripken Stadium at Aberdeen. Cambridge beat Dunbar 12-5 in Tuesday’s other semifinal.

Bo Manor scored two runs in the top of the first, but it was short-lived as Allegany roared back with three runs in the bottom of the inning, padded the lead to 9-2 through five, and ended up outhitting Bohemia Manor 12-5.

Bryce Nightengale had three singles, Chris Fram and Wade McGee two singles, Colton Sivic and Dylan Shockey tripled and Trenton Eirich and Carter Imes doubled to lead the attack.

Matt Oleksik got the win with another strong performance. After the two-run first, he put together five straight scoreless innings and finished with 11 strikeouts and no walks in 6 1-3 innings.

Bo Manor’s Tucker Freeman and Evan Potter singled and scored in the first inning, but Allegany escaped further damage by turning an inning-ending double play.

The Campers went right to work in the bottom half of the first when Fram and McGee singled and Sivic walked to load the bases. Nightengale hit a two-run single to tie it and the go-ahead run scored on an infield error.

Sivic smashed an RBI triple to center field in the second, and the Campers made it 7-2 with a three-run third. Eirich hit a rocket to center that hopped over the fence for a double, and Ryan Murphy had an RBI single, Shockey an RBI groundout and McGee an RBI single in the inning.

Imes doubled and scored on a Nightengale single in the fourth to make it 8-2, and Shockey led off the fifth with a triple to right-center and scored on a fielder’s choice hit by Fram.

Bohemia Manor had five hits, with Freeman and Potter getting two singles each.
